Growth figures show that the added value of multimodal transport in the Northeast Brabant region is becoming increasingly important. The number of full containers via the terminals in Veghel, Cuijk and Oss will have increased by 24% by 2020. And it is not only container transport that is on the rise, we also see – despite the influence of the coronavirus – a strengthening of logistics services in the field of bulk and break-bulk transhipment and warehousing.
The Agro & Food and Logistics sectors are strongly linked. A large part of the customer portfolio therefore comes from this sector and contributes greatly to the growth of container transport. In addition, we see that the Northeast Brabant region is becoming stronger in the area of logistics services. The full breadth of this package offers great potential for the coming years.
24% more container shipments
With 20 departures a week to Rotterdam and Antwerp, there is a lot of activity on the quays of Van Berkel Logistics. Despite the weather conditions, the congestion in the sea ports and the blocking of the lock in Schijndel, the company has seen the volume of container transports it takes care of grow considerably in 2020. Especially in the region that was hit very hard by the coronavirus, trade and logistics proved to be very vital. The number of full containers has increased to 57,000, whereas in 2019 there were still 46,000 containers. A total growth of 24%.
Resilient multimodal network
Van Berkel Logistics heeft inland terminals in Veghel en Cuijk en sinds oktober 2020 ook in Oss. De bundeling van Van Berkel Logistics has inland terminals in Veghel and Cuijk and since October 2020 also in Oss. The clustering of terminals increases the flexibility and reliability of the service, which is also demonstrated by the increase in the number of container transports in the Oss region. Van Berkel has a resilient multimodal network in Northeast Brabant that further improves the added value of the intermodal product.
