There’s a lot to celebrate at Eurohub Sud, a very promising logistics hub in Luxembourg, this week. For example, the new access bridge to reach this logistics hotspot was officially inaugurated, WDP opened a second building of 25,000 m² for Auchan and Innovation First there, and works on a third warehouse began.
The logistics sector is booming, but it also faces major challenges. We asked Thomas Bosmans, Portfolio Manager at WDP, where he sees the biggest challenges and his ideas for tackling them.

How does WDP try to create value with its liabilities, too? Through balanced financial management, whereby the matching principle of linking the issuance of capital to specific real estate investments is central. It is a starting point that adds a lot of value to a company.
The name says it all, MaatWERKbedrijf BWB provides custom-made work for its clients in all manner of sectors. To do this, they rely on 325 exceptional employees and on WDP as their logistics partner. This is because WDP offers them the most flexible facilities they need to do their jobs. Peter Van Speybroeck, CEO at BWB, explains.
At the end of last year, WDP was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year 2017. This Award was our ticket for WEOY, the World Entrepreneur of the Year Event in Monaco. Joost Uwents and Tony De Pauw, both CEOs at WDP, proudly represented Belgium and, just like 55 other entrepreneurs, were in the running to be awarded the world title. Watch the video where both gentlemen reveal what ‘Warehouses with brains’ are, how WDP distinguishes itself from the competition and why we are going for an internationalisation strategy.
