In 2017, we converted the Pauwenhof farmhouse in Wolvertem into office space and christened it as our WDP headquarters. We chose a geothermal installation because we believe sustainability is extremely important. We use this system to generate energy-efficient green heat or cold using the temperature of the ground. This has allowed us to reduce our annual power consumption by 39% and our CO² emissions by 29%.
WDP built a new 30,000 m² construction project last year in Zellik for Euro Pool System, Europe’s largest logistics service provider for multi-use packaging. From this service centre, among other things, the return logistics of the distribution centre of Delhaize in Zellik take place. A logistics process that overflows with sustainability from start to finish.
Logistics news is replete with articles about digitisation and sustainability. And, of course, so does our latest WDP Digest!
As the IT support officer, Kiran Van Ursel does what he loves every day: analysing problems and finding solutions. He is responsible for providing support within WDP and helps to brainstorm on IT solutions for large and small projects alike. We asked Kiran what the most appealing thing about his job and about WDP was.
The last day of the month of October is upon us. So, it’s time for a new WDP News Digest to bring you up to date on all of the developments in the world of logistics. After all, we’re publishing not-to-be-missed news, emerging trends, and all the interesting facts from last month… everything you need to know.
Patience is a virtue. The Romanian success story of WDP proves it. About ten years ago, WDP invested in Romania, intending to tap into a new growth market. The crisis in 2008 temporarily jeopardised these plans. But WDP’s patience and tenacity gave them a first-mover advantage in Romania. Chief Financial Officer Mickaël Van den Hauwe explains.
