In Laurenshaven, in the port of Rotterdam, we opened our uniquely designed warehouse for our valued bulk customers. The warehouse in Laurenshaven, operational since 2019, is built for demand changes. It is suitable for clean and dry covered storage, has sliding rooftops and is located on a deep water (10.65 mtr) quay directly under grab reach. How did we handle this project? In which way did it develop our bulk department? What does a normal day look like in this 120.000 m3 warehouse? And how do we handle this bulk cargo?, Henk Hoepel explains this challenging project.
