The Netherlands has always been progressive when it comes to energy consumption and entrepreneurship. By 2030 all buildings must be gas-free in order to reduce the strong emissions of CO2 and stop global warming. These new ecological regulations also changed a few things for Berner Produkten, an international company that planned the construction of a new warehouse in Kerkrade.
In recent years, the Netherlands, and Groningen in particular, has been shocked by earthquakes, ground and collapsing buildings caused by natural gas extraction. In addition, the enormous emissions of CO2 ensure that global warming continues to evolve with all its consequences. Moreover, fossil fuels are not infinite and will run out at some point.
The enormous emissions of CO2 and its effect on global climate change have become important items in the news the recent years.
How WDP supports the most ambitious cross-border logistics strategies
Daphne Certyn and Eva Van Raefelghem recently completed their two-month internships at WDP. Before saying goodbye, we placed them in front of our camera to find out how they look back at the experience of being a #TeamWDP member.
WDP is adding a multi-tenant distribution centre covering approximately 150,000 m² to its multimodal location at North Sea Port in Ghent (the WDPort of Ghent). Retailers X2O Badkamers, Overstock Home and Overstock Garden have entered into a long-term lease engagement.
WDP started as a small, ambitious family business and has grown into a successful player in the international logistics property market. Over the years, #teamwdp has expanded and clearly evolved. But the company's values have not changed.
