MLSO key indicators: directly employed at the port on the left bank of the Scheldt in 2020

At the end of 2020, the port on the left bank of the Scheldt – according to the annual survey – employed 21,031 FTEs (full-time equivalents, direct employment). 6,611 FTEs work in Zwijndrecht. 14,420 FTEs work in Beveren. The number jumps to 24,243 people when contractors are included. We consider the group of contractors to be ‘indirectly employed’. Other forms of indirect employment include transporters, suppliers, security officers, gardeners, catering staff, and so on.

To estimate the number of the indirectly employed at the Port of Antwerp, the National Bank of Belgium (NBB) calculated with a factor of direct employment x 1.25 (latest available factor is for balance sheet figures for 2019). With this as a basis, the estimated total employment at the port on the left bank of the Scheldt will decrease from 48,954 FTE in 2019 to 47,320 FTE in 2020.
