The Port of Antwerp is a seaport in the province of Antwerp, Belgium. It is located on the right bank of the Scheldt river, close to its confluence with the Rhine.

The major towns near the Antwerp Port are Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Anderlecht, Saint-Gilles, and Saint-Josse-ten-Noode. With a depth of up to 21.5 meters (70 ft), the port of Antwerp is one of the largest and busiest ports in Europe.

The port of Antwerp consists of four distinct but interconnected areas: The Left Bank (Linkeroever), the Right Bank (Rechteroever), the Port of Antwerp (De Haven van Antwerpen), and the Waasland Port (Haven van het Waasland).

The Left Bank is the oldest part of the port and is located on the left bank of the Scheldt river. It is here that the port’s history began, with the construction of the first quays in the 16th century. The Left Bank is still the heart of the port, with the majority of the port’s facilities and infrastructure located here.

The Right Bank is a relatively new part of the port, developed in the 20th century. It is located on the right bank of the Scheldt river and is home to the port’s container terminal. The port is accessible to vessels of up to 50,000 DWT.

The Antwerp Port is one of the busiest seaports in the world. The port is also an important hub for container shipping. The Antwerp Port is also an important center for the petrochemical industry.
