Energy Efficiency & CO2 saving at City of Antwerp
The City of Antwerp used a power quality improvement system, called E-Power, to improve energy efficiency and reduce consumption in eight of its buildings, with potentially more to come.
Coordinating Freight Movements in Antwerp
Antwerp has the second largest port in Europe. It also has a strategic and central location in Europe. This leads to a lot of freight/logistic traffic in, towards and out of the port. Hence, efforts are made to encourage a modal, location, time, technology and mental shift in the logistic sector.
Connecting Transport Systems
Antwerp wants to provide locations – such as P&R’s in the city outskirts – where commuters can easily switch from one transportation mode to a more sustainable other when traveling to and from their work in the city or port area.
Developing Dynamic Traffic Management
Antwerp is a lively and vibrant city with many different traffic flows: citizens, visitors, commuters, students, freight and logistics. This also leads to many different transport modes sharing space. Measures are taken to manage this in an efficient way, to keep the city accessible and liveable.
Event and Commuter Travel Plans
With ca. 80,000 companies and over 247,000 employees, commuter traffic, therefore, forms a big part of the movements in and around the city of Antwerp. Event and commuter plans are implemented to help companies outline sustainable mobility policies.

Integrating The Collective Transport Network in Antwerp
In order to link the city of Antwerp with its port area, efforts are made to expand and promote the public transport network in and around the city.
