Deufol expands breakbulk handling capacity at port of Antwerp
Packaging & supply chain company, Deufol, has kicked off the expansion of its breakbulk cargo capacity at the port of Antwerp. The company started the groundworks for a new warehouse that will be used for the storage and packaging of industrial breakbulk cargo.
The warehouse, positioned inside the breakbulk zone of the port of Antwerp, will increase Deufol’s capacity with additional 5460 square metres. This will add to the existing 9500 square metres the company currently offers.
Deufol specialises in handling and packaging industrial goods unsuitable for transportation in a shipping container, so that they can be transported damage free. The consolidation, storage and packaging of industrial goods provides added value to Antwerp’s role as a breakbulk port.
The new warehouse will be built by FRISOMAT and the facility is expected to commence operations in February 2022. It is seen as the next step towards developing Deufol’s unit in the port of Antwerp into a maritime hub for consolidation, storage and packaging of industrial goods.
The Deufol HUB is a multimodal connected site, which reduces delays and transport costs in the supply chain processes. The 40,000 square metre site is suited for handling all sorts of project cargo.
