MLSO key indicators: directly employed at the port on the left bank of the Scheldt in 2023

At the end of 2023, the port on the left bank of the Scheldt – according to the annual survey – employed 22,453 FTEs (full-time equivalents, direct employment). 7,674 FTEs work in Zwijndrecht. 14,779 FTEs work in Beveren. The number reaches 25,035 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 1.26 (latest available factor is for balance sheet figures for 2020). With this as a basis, the estimated total employment at the port on the left bank of the Scheldt will increase from 49,913 FTE in 2022 to 50,743 FTE in 2023.
