P&O Ferrymasters is set to build a 107,639ft2 state-of-the-art warehouse near the Port of Genk to enhance its pan-European rail, road and warehousing network at a critical time for international trade and the economic recovery.
It has entered into an agreement with Genk Green Logistics to build the facility, which is ideally positioned to 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.
The warehouse will be constructed on a carbon-neutral site and designed to meet BREEAM ‘Excellent’.
“This new warehouse capacity at Genk is a vital addition to our port-centric logistics strategy and growing pan-European intermodal network,” said Mark Mulder, P&O Ferrymaster Contract Logistics Director. “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.”
