Now the third leading inland port in Europe, the Liege port complex boasts an annual level of traffic of over 18 million tonnes, a level that has been steadily rising for several years now. There have been development projects galore. The management of an outstanding 120 ha area along the Albert Canal in Hermalle-sous-Argenteau was recently entrusted to the Liege Port Authority. Called Liege Trologiport, this multimodal platform-to-be will be focused entirely on logistics, while accommodating a 15 hectares container terminal. This platform is set to be become a fully-fledged "logistical village" in the centre of Europe in the near future.
