New warehouse at Ghent Kluizendok strengthens chemical cluster

From Genk to Ghent… While it may just seem like a few letters were shifted here, these two names symbolise a huge difference to our customers. To meet the needs of our customers, we now own a site at Ghent Kluizendok.

On 26 September, the festive opening of our brand-new warehouse took place at the Kluizendok in Ghent. At the event, themed ‘together we are building your future’, guests received a synchromodal tour of the site and were able to discover multiple transport modes on a terrain that covered no less than 150,000m2. With the new site, we are taking the next step in our synchromodal strategy and our range of sustainable comprehensive solutions, with a special focus on our strategic chemical segment. In addition to our sites in Antwerp and Limburg, which were granted the High Seveso licence, we now also have our own chemical site in East Flanders. This geographical distribution and proximity are extremely interesting for our customers in chemicals.

Its location on an economically crucial arterial road in Ghent is a major asset for the expansion of synchromodality. Thanks to multimodal access to the Ghent Kluizendok via road, rail and inland navigation, the entire world can be reached from our site. Guests were able to experience this strategic location themselves during the festive opening: they could leave their cars behind and be taken on a tour via road, rail and water. Using VR glasses, they were able to experience the location and the opportunities of the Kluizendok site itself.

Eastman

Although our company was already active in Ghent, we were mainly operating on the sites of our customers. But increasing growth led to the need for our own site. The Port of Ghent proved to be the perfect location for further investment in our strategic chemical segment. The first two customers we welcomed to the Kluizendok were Eastman and Chevron.

Building your future
And it doesn’t end here. Because we are preparing our other strategic locations to be able to better support our clients from the chemical sector in terms of warehousing, heating and filling facilities. Together we are building your future!
