Sealogis Belgium moves logistics team to new warehouse in Grobbendonk
Sealogis Belgium has relocated its entire logistics team to a state-of-the-art warehouse in Grobbendonk (Antwerp East Port) in a move to expand its operations in the region. The new warehouse is located at the DLCT Terminal and will primarily be used for storage and cross-docking activities, as well as value-added and supply chain services.
“Located near the Albert Canal, the new warehouse is a multimodal site that connects various transportation routes between the ports of Antwerp and Liège, among others. This strategic location also provides convenient access to the Netherlands and Germany”, says Edwig Laenen, CEO of Sealogis Belgium.
The DLCT terminal (Dennie Lockefeer Container Terminal) has a dock length of 200 meters and a total surface area of 100,000 m2. It is located about 20 km from the Port of Antwerp.
This terminal's multimodal access is an added advantage for Sealogis, as it allows the company to transport goods by road, water, and rail. With a surface area of 17,500 m2, the warehouse has multimodal access, including access to the Albert Canal and the E313 motorway, which provides Sealogis Belgium an advantage in terms of fast accessibility for road transport.
The warehouse's location on the banks of the Albert Canal offers easy access to water transport, allowing goods to be easily transported by ship from the port of Antwerp to the warehouse.
Move of the logistics team
With a team of six highly experienced logistics professionals working from the warehouse, the company is now better equipped than ever to handle the needs of its clients. The team will be responsible for managing the movement of goods and products in and out of the warehouse, as well as coordinating with other logistics professionals to ensure timely delivery.
The new warehouse will primarily be used for storage, 5PL and cross-docking activities. In addition, the warehouse will bring value-added and supply chain services.
Sealogis Belgium has several business units that specialize in providing their clients with both operational and commercial expertise. Their areas of specialization include (non-)hazardous chemicals, e-commerce, supply chain management & logistics, and consumer goods.
Complementary move forward
“The new warehouse will complement the current infrastructure, allowing the company to broaden its capabilities and provide better services to its clients. Sealogis Belgium will continue to provide comprehensive logistics services, such as transportation, warehousing, and distribution, and will use the new warehouse to further enhance their abilities”, says Edwig Laenen.
The opening of the new warehouse does not eliminate Sealogis' existing logistics infrastructure. Rather, it is a complementary step that will allow the company to broaden its capabilities and respond to customers' needs. The company will continue to offer its comprehensive range of logistics services, including transportation, warehousing, and distribution, while leveraging the new warehouse to further enhance its capabilities.
Overall, the opening of the new warehouse is a significant step forward for Sealogis Belgium, and one that will undoubtedly benefit its clients in a multitude of ways.
