Port of Antwerp invites you to their event

Webinar Life sciences & Healthcare: the maritime alternative

About this event

A spotlight on the maritime supply chain for life science and healthcare products

We, as 2nd port in Europe, have made significant efforts in making our entire port platform GDP compliant. This means all Antwerp actors in your maritime supply chain are ready to serve you according to the Good Distribution Practice Guidelines set by the EU.

Curious about our achievements?

In this webinar you’ll:

  • learn more about how Port of Antwerp pioneers in the Good Distribution Practice approach for maritime supply chains.
  • get insights in the critical points and how they are successfully tackled by all stakeholders: the container terminals, the shipping lines and the forwarders.
