This month sees the opening of a new 41 000 square metre logistics centre in Wiel am Rhein in south Germany. 30,000 EURO pallets can be stored at the same time and 18,000 square metres of floor space is available for storing small freight. There are 35 loading bays.
60% of the space has already been contracted; some of the customers produce organic wine or outdoor sports clothing, whereas others are in the food, pharmaceutical, engine and solar panel sectors.
In 2010 the existing Weil am Rhein terminal handled 25,000 TEU. Seven operators offer 24 inland shipping services between Weil and Rotterdam weekly.
