This paper presents new data for the Antwerp seaport, and a comparative analysis of direct port value added for transshipment and gateway containers. By means of a bottom–up approach using the financial statements of 16 terminal operators, the value added of different types of traffic has been recalculated on 2015 data by transforming nominal tonnes into so-called “value tonnes”. Interestingly, we find that value added coefficients of different cargo types have converged compared to 1995 data, and that gateway containers represent almost twice as much value added than transhipment containers.",
