Mainfreight open its Crossdock Center in Ghent in June 2018. It is the third investment of Mainfreight in Belgium after the opening of their facilities in Genk and Evergem.
The site of Mainfreight is the first development at “Eilandje” Zwijnaarde / Tech Lane Ghent, a complete new business park. This new crossdock center has a total size of 10,000 sqm and will provide international groupage services and national distribution. From this new site, situated at the main roads of Belgium E40 and E17 and with direct connection to the R4, will offer customers a higher service level than that provided at our other site in Ostend.
This new crossdock center is the beginning of an important chapter in the development of Mainfreight in Belgium. The new site gives us the chance to operate from a very good location to optimise our service and flexibility for our customers. Through this major investment, Mainfreight will also realise a decrease in CO2 emissions continuing our goal of investing further in sustainability.
