New Geodis site will be sustainable and liveable

[ September 16, 2021   //   ]

Geodis is to acquire 21.5 hectares of land at Trade Port Noord for a 130,000sq m sustainable contract logistics facility. It will serve customers in vertical sectors and accommodate the current growth in e-commerce.
Venlo is one of Europe’s prime spots for logistics, located near the German border and close to the air and seaports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp.
Chief executive Marie-Christine Lombard said: “Trade Port Noord has excellent connections to the European multimodal infrastructure via road, river, rail, ocean and air. This makes it the ideal location for Geodis to operate cargo flows for international clients, and to manage their warehousing and logistics needs utilizing our European distribution network – and to expand our Benelux-Germany-Poland corridor at the same time
Construction of the new facility will start in 2022 and it will be designed to BREEAM sustainability standards along with the WELL standard for creating spaces that enhance human health and well-being, making it one of the very few logistics buildings in the world with such a certification, said Marie-Christine Lombard.
