In 2004, after more than 10 years of success on the French, Belgian and Dutch markets, the Achema and Litert companies affirmed the desire to expand their activity to the ports of the European Union. To better meet the needs of our Belgian, French and German customers, the choice of the location of the terminal fell on Ghent, a Belgian seaport located on the left bank of Shelde, 60 km from the estuary.
A quay depth of 12-13 m, well-developed infrastructures, the absence of tides, accessibility to waterways, represent real assets. Following discussions with the port authorities and GTS, our partner on site, the choice fell on the new port of Ghent: Kluizendok. Fertigent is therefore the realization of a successful partnership between Achema, Litfert and GTS. The latter, since its creation in 1984, has established itself as a storage and handling professional: GTS is one of the first family businesses to have set up in the port of Ghent. It was after a year of work and 3 million Euros of investments that the Fertigent terminal loaded its first truck in June 2006.
