"Speed, assurance and short delivery times are more important than ever, especially since COVID-19 has given e-commerce a boost," comments Ralph Caspanni, CEO of Heylen Warehouses. "In order to guarantee speed, three factors play an important role: distance to the consumer, the immediate availability of products and the size of the stock.”
To fulfil these requirements, logistics players need more storage space closer to home on multimodal sites. Strategic storage spaces can shorten delivery times and reduce dependency on a chain of suppliers. “Thanks to the location at North Sea Port, Ghent Logistic Campus is easily accessible and guarantees smooth, rapid stock handling,” explains Ralph Caspanni.
