UAE - Mubasher: DP World's P&O Ferrymasters, a pan-European provider of logistics solutions, has inked an agreement with Belgium-based Genk Green Logistics to construct a new 10,000 square metre warehouse near the Port of Genk in Belgium to offer port-centric logistics solutions.
Under the agreement, the new warehouse will be equipped with world-leading management systems and help customers to raise efficiency, track their goods, and expand storage capacity in their end-to-end supply chains, according to a press release on Thursday.
The warehouse 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 the North Sea.
As part of the DP World and P&O Ferrymasters' sustainability objective, the warehouse will be built on a carbon-neutral site.
P&O Ferrymasters’ Contract Logistics Director, Mark Mulder, said: "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."
