Opportunities

Due to the growth in cross-dock operations in Rotterdam, Damco needed a cross dock facility on this location.

  • Workshop with Damco in order to discuss the solutions, the future possibilities, the advantages and disadvantages and the next steps to achieve a cross dock facility.




Benefits


  • Experience in logistics as well as in building facilities

  • Clear insight in possible building lay-outs now and in the future
