Our new barge Westford was welcomed into Antwerp earlier this week. This will be the fifth vessel of barge operator iBarge, which is the daughter company of Van Moer Logistics. Westford is an inland ship with a length of 110 meters, which is an equivalent of 208 TEU.
The iBarge fleet has a variety of duties, each connected to a specific activity.
the Westford will be used to perform intra port shuttles within the Port of Antwerp.
This new barge will join the existing fleet of Amelie V, Stanford, Newford, Greenford and two push combinations.
The total capacity of all vessels is 1328 TEU.
Adding capacity to our intermodal fleet is an important strategic decision.
Concentrating business on multimodal transport and chemical industry will be the new focus for Van Moer Logistics.
