Dynamic warehouses

Are you looking for a warehouse or distribution centre? Or does your company want to outsource its real estate to focus on core activities?

Whether you need a traditional warehouse or cross-docking, pharmaceutical or cold storage facilities, a GDP or TAPA certified warehouse, a data warehouse or any other type of storage facility, each warehouse or distribution centre is unique.

We rent out an extensive portfolio of well-situated semi-industrial real estate on a permanent or temporary basis. We make sure we understand your operational needs.

But we offer much more than creativity and permanent solutions:

  • Sale and rent back operations
  • Direct Acquisitions
  • Renovations
  • Redevelopments
  • Developments
  • Assets with development potential over medium-long term
  • Refurbishing existing buildings
  • Innovative use of the available space

In offering a standard height of 10 meters or more, in all our warehouses, stacking is more efficient. The available space is used to its maximum capacity allowing you to stack more goods in a smaller area.

AT THE CROSSROADS

We take up a prominent place on the logistical axis of Amsterdam-Antwerp-Brussels-Lille-Paris and a growing strategic portfolio in Romania.

Increasing congestion, time- and money- consuming public works, higher fuel prices... the environmental impact of these everyday problems threatens our future trade. There is a need for flexibility between transport methods, while goods have to be reloaded at traffic hubs. In some regions there are many different transport methods, combining and providing a broad range of transport services that ensure an efficient logistical flow. WDP consistently places its warehouses at those locations, where a connection between road, ship, rail and air transportation can be established. Modes can compete or complement one another in terms of cost, speed, accessibility, frequency, safety and comfort.

We follow the logistical heartbeat of Western Europe, home to a large concentration of consumers with a high disposable income. Together with its Belgian domestic market, WDP has chosen strategic locations in the Netherlands and the north of France. The Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta is of enormous economic importance, as the three rivers are major navigable waterways that allow for a multimodal infrastructure. From this strategic position, we continue to respond to increasing demand levels thanks to the presence of the international ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam. Our second growth area is south-eastern Europe, where we have warehouses in Romania.

Energy

WDP continuously provides well-insulated buildings using sustainable and renewable energy. In conjunction with well-considered energy use this results in greener warehouses and distribution centres and consequently to cheaper warehouses.

We differentiate ourselves by careful monitoring your utility costs. We calculate the cost savings of an existing warehouse by comparing its energy consumption, primarily lighting and heating.
