The project is an important strategic milestone for the company’s presence in Europe
Following the opening of a new chemicals and dangerous goods warehouse in Malaysia last year, Bremen, Germany-headquartered Leschaco has now signed a lease with industrial land developer DHG (David Hart Group) developing a new ADR (a warehouse where dangerous goods are stored) warehouse facility in Moerdijk, Netherlands.
The new chemical logistics centre has optimal multimodal transport links: In addition to the proximity to the seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp, access to the two most important waterways in the Netherlands.
The warehouse offers space for approximately 45,000 pallets on an area of 29,000sqm. It is divided into five sections. Four of them are equipped with CO2 extinguishing systems, specifically designed for the storage of chemicals and dangerous goods, while the fifth is for the storage of general cargo and is equipped with ESFR sprinklers.
“This project is an important strategic milestone for our presence in Europe. It is also necessary to meet the increasing demand in the region and to be closer to our customers,” remarked Constantin Conrad, Managing Partner, Leschaco Group.
“The new logistics centre offers our global customers in the chemical, healthcare, automotive, industrial materials and consumer goods sectors a wide range of services and, in combination with other Leschaco products, complex logistics solutions at the highest level. In addition to pallet storage, this includes various kinds of value-added services according to our customers’ demands,” asserted Sebastian Haebler, Head of Global Contract Logistics, Leschaco.
The new building meets all safety and environmental standards. Solar panels on the roof will be able to cover part of the electricity demand. Other sustainable measures, such as the use of electric floor heating instead of gas or oil installations, LED lighting, and the highest construction standards for isolation, also contribute to improving the climate balance, as do the short distances to the port of Moerdijk for transport by barge and rail and e-charging stations for cars.
The Leschaco Group is a traditional, owner-managed logistics service provider and offers intercontinental logistics solutions for sea and air freight as well as contract logistics and tank container operation.
As proven partner for leading companies in plant construction and mechanical engineering, automotive, chemical, and related industries, producers of consumer goods and pharmaceuticals. Leschaco offers comprehensive logistics solutions from one single source, the press statement concluded.
