Analogous to the increasing shortage of transport capacity, a comparable trend can also be seen in the SCHMIDT Group’s silo facilities. In conjunction with seasonal influences, the approx. 1,400 high silos at the various European branches are almost fully occupied. A similar trend can be observed for the occupancy of the warehouses and outdoor storage areas as well as 30′ bulk containers.
Through expansion measures in Tarragona / Spain, additional capacity has been created for the Spanish market which will be available at the beginning of next year. The construction work at the Duisburg terminal will take a little longer; here we expect that a further 40 silos can be put into operation in the middle of next year.Should you have any external storage requirements in your planning, please get in touch with the contact persons mentioned below or your respective customer advisors as early as possible in order to receive an individual storage concept according to your requirements.
