SUBSIDIARY BELGIUM ANTWERP
Based on the demand for silo storage capacity, in 1991 silo facilities with warehouse, container terminal and tilting platform for containers were built on the right shore of the Schelde in the Antwerp harbour area. By leasing an adjacent property long-term, this container terminal could be expanded in 2012 and now provides space for a total of 750 TEU.
Two tilting platforms for containers, two state-of-the-art bagging lines and a mobile device for bagging into octabins and big bags are availabe to provide an extensive portfolio of services from this 35,000 m² facility. Bulk goods may be stored in silos, packaged goods in the open or inside warehouses.
