Inland Terminals Group achieves 58% CO2 reduction for Tuinmaterialen Meynen

Water over asphalt. A growing number of organisations are shifting from highways to inland waterways in an effort to minimize their environmental impact. Tuinmaterialen Meynen is one such progressive company. By shipping its import containers from Antwerp to Inland Terminals Group’s terminal in Meerhout, the Belgian company eliminates 113,000 kilometres of highway transit and cuts CO2 emissions by 58%.

Tuinmaterialen Meynen imports and distributes natural stone garden materials, construction materials, and garden decoration for sale to both individuals and contractors in the Benelux region. The company’s premises are located a mere 7.5 km away from our facility in Meerhout — an ideal location for importing their containers via the Port of Antwerp and our terminal. This shift to our terminal could potentially eliminate 800 containers from the traffic on the Antwerp ring road and the E313, alleviating both traffic congestion and environmental strain.
