Busan Port Authority for Maasvlakte

Busan Port Authority has signed a contract for the issue of a 5-hectare site. Of the seven remaining plots, six are already reserved, says Rotterdam Port Authority.

 

Busan Port Authority is developing a sustainable 30,000 m2 warehouse on the site, for use by various, mainly Korean, service providers. “For us, the Port of Rotterdam is the perfect location to run a warehouse”, stated Ki-chan Nam, Busan Port Authority CEO.

 

“The optimal deep-sea port infrastructure and multimodal connections with other countries makes Rotterdam the ‘connected’ port in Europe and the best location for Korean logistics companies to do business in Europe.” The warehouse will become operational in 2021.

 

“We have been cooperating with Busan Port Authority in many areas for quite some time”, stated Emile Hoogsteden, Director of Containers, Breakbulk & Logistics at the Port of Rotterdam Authority. “We are proud that they will be the first party to realise their own warehouse on our new distribution park. Moreover, their sustainable ambitions are a seamless match for our objectives.” It is expected that the warehouse will receive a BREEAM-NL Outstanding certificate.

 

The site is also located close to deep sea, short sea, inland shipping and rail connections and is also convenient for the A15 motorway, the Maasvlakte Plaza Truck parking area, the existing Maasvlakte Distribution Park and the freight rail links between Maasvlakte and the European hinterland.
