P&O Ferrymasters opens new warehouse in Rotterdam
P&O Ferrymasters will open a 17,000 sqm warehousing facility in Europoort (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) to support its trans-Continental operations. The 10-year contract for the additional facilities will significantly expand the warehousing storage capacity of P&O Ferrymasters at Rotterdam.
The warehouse, which consists of two 7,500 sqm levels, will become operational next month and is in close proximity to both the Maasvlakte 2 area in Rotterdam and the Europoort ferry terminal, making it ideally positioned to accommodate the import and export of goods requiring storage for routes on the deep sea, short sea and North Sea.
P&O Ferrymasters is equipping the new facility with 16 loading docks and proven warehouse management systems. Mark Mulder, P&O Ferrymasters’ contract logistics director, said: “This new warehouse capacity at Rotterdam marks an important step in our plans to enable trade flows across Europe.” (mw)
