Together with Verbrugge International, Slavenburg & Huyser is starting a 50.000 m2 European Distribution Center for solar panels in the port of Vlissingen, The Netherlands. With rising energy prices the demand for solar panels in Europe is booming. Slavenburg & Huyser was already involved in the logistics of solar panels, but due to the rapid growth of volumes there was a need to scale up the supply chain and warehousing capacity.
Verbrugge anticipated well on the increasing demand for containers and the congestion of main ports. “We invested in a 7 HA container yard in combination with a new Terminal Operating System in order to lift our container business to the next level.”; Dolf van Dijk, commercial manager at Verbrugge, says. “We are already stuffing, stripping and barging some 100.000 containers per year. However, we see a real need in the market for more capacity. The new infrastructure enables us to offer this capacity. The cooperation with Slavenburg & Huyser fits very well into our strategy . With every container we handle, we make Europe a bit more sustainable!”
