The ports of the European Union are therefore of crucial importance to the economy of the member countries since they are the gateways to the territory for 74% of imported goods. Today there are more than 1200 commercial seaports on the EU coasts and around 4 billion tonnes of goods pass through them every year.

Despite this large number of ports, only a few are recognized as major ones, forming the basis of a high-performance network that handles 96% of maritime traffic (ESPO - The European Sea Port Organisation) in Europe. Indeed, only these main ports can accommodate the largest container ships (up to 18 000), often coming from Asia and China in particular.
The port of Rotterdam is the largest seaport in Europe. The port owes its leading position to its exceptional accessibility for seagoing vessels and its strategic geographical location on the northwest coast of Europe. It is a large industrial port area with easy access to the Rhine valley with its numerous conurbations and industrial zones. In 2019, 469.4 million tonnes of goods were accounted for, which represents more than 10% of the goods transiting Europe's ports.

Also located on the northwest coast of Europe, the Antwerp post is a very important maritime gateway to the European Union. In 2019 the port of Antwerp will have passed the 200 million tonne mark for the fourth consecutive year! That same year 14,595 seagoing ships entered and left the port of Antwerp. An average of 39 per day, and the ships are getting bigger and bigger every year. Around 900 companies are established in the Antwerp port area, which plays a crucial role in the Belgian economy.

The Port of Hamburg is Germany's most important commercial port and the third largest container port in Europe. Located on the Elbe estuary and accessible from the North Sea, it easily serves and supplies the entire country with 7,300 logistics companies operating in the area and more than 2,300 freight trains per week. The Port of Hamburg has four ultramodern container terminals, three cruise terminals and around 50 specialized facilities for handling all kinds of bulk cargo, making it one of the most flexible and efficient universal ports in the world. 136.6 million tonnes of cargo were handled on the quays of Germany's largest seaport in 2019. This figure includes approximately 9.3 million standard containers.

In 2019, the Port Authority of Marseille Fos/mer is once again asserting their leadership in France. It recorded 9,917 ship calls and handled 79 million tonnes of goods. Located on the Mediterranean coast at the mouth of the Rhône, the Port of Marseille Fos has space and infrastructure necessary to accommodate maritime, logistics and industrial activities. It is capable of handling all types of imports and exports of goods (petroleum products, containers, ores, food products, etc.). The port has large logistics platforms hosting international players in the transport of goods that supply the French and European markets.
