WDP and Barry Callebaut handshake

WDP develops new Global Distribution Centre for Barry Callebaut

When chocolate, logistics and a sustainable future become one

WDP is carrying out a project that our teams really get to sink their teeth into: the construction of the new global distribution centre for Barry Callebaut in Lokeren.

The world leader in cocoa and chocolate products found the perfect partner in WDP for its bold plans for the future. It is also taking a crucial step towards a greener and more sustainable logistics process.

Forever Chocolate, Forever Logistics

The plans at hand are promising to say the least. A brand new, sustainable logistics complex, energy-neutral and packed with the latest in logistics technology – fully on par with Barry Callebaut’s ambitious Forever Chocolate sustainability strategy.

Logistics efficiency and intelligent design are joining forces with innovative solar panels, geothermal energy, electrical charging stations, and smart biking facilities.

Delivery in 2021

The new site is located at the new E17/4 industrial park in Lokeren, and will be delivered in Q3/2021. Already keen for a taster?
