Boost for international trading as P&O Ferrymasters to deliver new Belgian warehouse
P&O Ferrymasters has today announced it is set to create a new warehouse at a European port in a bid to enhance international trade.
P&O Ferrymasters has entered into an agreement with Genk Green Logistics to build a new warehouse near the Port of Genk in Belgium.
The 10,000 sq m facility – located near the port which is in the heart of Flanders’ industrial belt - will accommodate the import and export of goods requiring storage for international deep-sea routes and to the UK via both the English Channel and North Sea.
Mark Mulder, P&O Ferrymasters’ contract logistics director, commented: “This new warehouse capacity at Genk is a vital addition to our port-centric logistics strategy and growing pan-European intermodal network.
“Specifically tailored to meet the evolving requirements of customers, the facility will provide the greater operational flexibility and capacity required to reinforce resilience in crucial, time-sensitive supply chains.”
He continued: “P&O Ferrymasters’ ongoing development in Genk presents an ideal opportunity for prospective customers which need fast and reliable links to their markets.
“International trade is changing fast as we emerge from the pandemic and port-centric logistics will benefit the large number of businesses looking to reconfigure their supply chains.”
