Zeebrugge Food Logistics doubles its food storage capacity

30/07/2020

Zeebrugge port will soon be even more attractive for international food companies looking to conquer Europe. Zeebrugge Food Logistics has announced the construction of a new giant freezer.

In 2011, Zeebrugge Food Logistics built a first 5,000 m2 warehouse for frozen food. This unique opportunity in the very centre of Europe was a huge success from the start. "Storage, order preparation, packaging, and labelling: we offer our customers a complete service," declares Sylvie Becaus, Managing Director at Zeebrugge Food Logistics.

With demand for this type of service continuing to grow in recent years, this expansion was inevitable. This new storage centre offers a solution to the increase in traffic with Asia and with British companies looking for a reliable European centre.

The new giant freezer will be able to house up to 27,000 palettes as of 2021. "The most recent cooling technology and a smart system will facilitate the transit of large volumes of goods. For example, there will be separate zones for order preparation, transshipment, and unloading containers. Objective: to provide international food companies with a cutting-edge logistics and distribution centre," according to Sylvie Becaus.

Yet another asset for Belgium, already recognised for its logistics capacity.
