Busan Port Authority is developing a sustainable 30,000 square metre warehouse on Maasvlakte Distribution Park West, for use by various, mainly Korean, service providers. Of the seven remaining plots, six are already reserved.
The Port of Rotterdam represents the perfect location to run a warehouse, stated Ki-chan Nam, Busan Port Authority CEO.
The optimal deep-sea port infrastructure and multimodal connections with other countries makes Rotterdam the ‘connected’ port in Europe and the best location for Korean logistics companies to do business in Europe.
The warehouse will become operational in 2021.
According to Maarten de Wijs, Business Manager Distribution and Warehousing at the Port of Rotterdam Authority, the high interest in this area is understandable, as it is the only available ‘greenfield’ location in the Port of Rotterdam:
The site is also located a stone’s throw from high-frequency deep-sea, short-sea, inland shipping and rail connections. And, the Distribution Park is also located conveniently for the A15, the Maasvlakte Plaza Truck parking area, the existing Maasvlakte Distribution Park and the freight rail links between Maasvlakte and the European hinterland.
