In 2014, the port community established a carpool platform to encourage ridesharing, on the initiative of the Antwerp Port Authority, Alfaport and the Scheldt Left Bank Corporation. Employees can use this platform to easily find a carpool partner. Arlanxeo, BASF, CNH Industrial Belgium, ENGIE Electrabel, Eurochem, Inovyn and Styrolution have also joined the platform in the meantime. Various other companies have also already expressed interest. Joining the platform is cheap and gives employees a chance to find a ride match within their own company or in the port. Employers wishing to join the Port of Antwerp carpool platform can contact Taxistop: firstname.lastname@example.org or 09 242 32 13.
Employers can also stimulate carpooling in their company, e.g., by organising a carpooling day or by creating parking spaces for people who share a ride.
