Mainfreight has announced it will move to a new cross dock centre at Ghent, Belgium in June 2018. It is the third investment of Mainfreight in Belgium after the opening of their facilities in Genk and Evergem.
The site of Mainfreight is the first development at “Eilandje” Zwijnaarde / Tech Lane Ghent, a complete new business park. This new cross dock centre has a total size of 10,000 sq m and will provide international groupage services and national distribution. From this new site, situated at the main roads of Belgium E40 and E17 and with direct connection to the R4, the company said it will offer customers a higher service level than that provided at the other site in Ostend.
Alderman Mathias De Clercq commented: “With the development of this business park we provide additional space in Ghent for both knowledge-intensive businesses in biotech, and logistics and distribution companies. That is good for the employment in Ghent”.
This new cross dock centre is the beginning of an important chapter in the development of Mainfreight in Belgium. The new site gives the company the chance to operate from a very good location to optimise its service and flexibility for customers. Through this investment, Mainfreight will also realise a decrease in CO2 emissions continuing its goal of investing further in sustainability.
