We start the new month with a new WDP Digest. For the logistics sector, spring brings us new ideas, innovative solutions, and hope for improvement. Read about bio-fuel and low-sulphur heating oil, the launching of Uber Freight in the Netherlands, and the challenges for zero-emission zones.
Facility Manager Joris De Paep manages thirty warehouses in Belgium and Northern France with the same care and common sense as if they were his own. We asked Joris how he fills his days. Meet one of the faces behind ‘Warehouses with brains’.
Double party at WDP!
We will start the new month with a new WDP Digest, in which digitalisation and automation are key. Read more about logistics cloud platforms, smart forklifts, and how the Rotterdam Port Authority pursues its ambition of being the smartest port with the Internet of Things.
The port of Liège is Belgium’s first and Europe’s third inland port mainly because of its excellent geographical situation and its multimodal characteristics. This year, another asset will be added to the mix, because the two container terminals Tercofin and DP World Inland will, from now on, form a new joint-venture: DP World Liège Container Terminals SA.
As the Sales & Business Development Manager at WDP, Martijn Sleutjes crosses the whole of the Netherlands to (re)develop logistics real estate. We asked him how he fills his days and why he enjoys working at WDP so much.
Two years ago, WDP built a new 40,000 m² distribution centre for Ceva Logistics, which has been managing the storage and distribution of Medtronic’s medical devices since August 2017. Another 10,000 m² have been added in January 2019. Site Manager David Serarols shows us around the DC and reveals the challenges of medical devices logistics.
