DB Schenker Logistics expandiert in Flandern (Belgiem)
DB Schenker Logistics will be building a 5,000 square meter cross-docking warehouse and 2,900 square meters of office space. For this project, Intercommunale Leiedal, an inter-urban corporation, is making CO2-neutral industrial properties available at the former production site of Bekaert.
“We had been looking for a new location for our Waregem branch for some time,” says Ulrich Pütz, Managing Director at Schenker nv. “This was necessary to continue our growth path. The new site had to be big enough and easily accessible to international and distribution transport. It was of prime importance for us to stay in the region, in order to offer our existing and future export customers best quality.”
Schenker nv is the Belgian branch of DB Schenker Logistics and employs 655 staff members at eight sites across Belgium (mainly in Flanders): Antwerp (corporate office and ocean freight activities), Brucargo (air freight), Brussels (rail logistics services), Eupen (land transport and logistics), Mechelen (land transport), Waregem (land transport and air freight), Willebroek (contract logistics and supply chain management) and Zeebrugge (ocean freight).
