How data are collected and managed


Current limitations

The count is restricted to the port area, a legally defined territory which is under the management of the Port Authority (PA) or Port Management Body (PMB). For example, the boundaries of the Flemish ports are determined by a decision of the Flemish Government.

It is yet not clear whether all ports use the same categories to define their cargo.
