Brenntag Expands Warehouse Near the Port of Rotterdam

02.10.2023 - Brenntag opens a new warehouse in Moerdijk, the Netherlands. The new facility expands existing facilities to optimize the location and meet growing customer demand.

Brenntag's warehouse will store chemicals and ingredients for many markets and applications, including the company's life science business for the food and nutrition industry. A dedicated refrigerated area has been created for products that require temperature-controlled storage, such as cocoa butter. The warehouse is also equipped with advanced automated storage systems, including automated picking and automated forklift trucks.

"The Moerdijk location proves to be extremely advantageous as it is located in the immediate area of the important Port of Rotterdam. This strategic location allows us to efficiently connect to important trade routes and markets throughout Europe. Investing in the Moerdijk site and our regional site network, allows us to offer our customers a smooth and cost-efficient logistics solution," said Pierre Claeys, President of Brenntag Essentials, Benelux.

The warehouse has been designed and built to the latest sustainability standards and is built to last. Its insulation is intended to ensure energy efficiency and minimise environmental impact. Rainwater retention measures have also been taken to conserve natural resources and a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant has been installed to ensure that all wastewater is treated to the latest standards. These investments will enable the site to achieve BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certification. BREEAM is a widely used quality label in Europe and the UK for assessing and measuring the sustainability performance of buildings and sites. In addition, the first electric forklift in the EMEA region was introduced on a trial basis at the Moerdijk site.
