H.Essers plans synchromodal construction hub in Genk

In times of increasing traffic and growing environmental awareness, inland navigation is one of the transport modes of the future. We gladly build on that to make our transport flows even more efficient and thus also optimise our services for you.

In late May, H.Essers transported construction materials to Genk via the water for the first time. The ship transported 1,250 pallets with plaster boards that were unloaded in Genk-Zuid. The goods were temporarily stored and on customer demand distributed regionally by our trucks. In the future these kinds of shipments will be unloaded at the new H.Essers Dry Port Genk site. After all, in addition to the expansion of our chemical activities, the Dry Port also features a synchromodal construction hub from which we can efficiently manage the flow of goods for the construction, infrastructure and utility industries.

CCO Pascal Vrancken: “This milestone is a new chapter in the further development of our synchromodal solutions, in which we integrate alternative transport options such as railways, inland and sea shipping into our services, so that we can respond even better to the needs of our customers. Thanks to its location on the Albert Canal, H.Essers Dry Port Genk, which will become operational in November 2018, is a crucial link in our synchromodal strategy.”
