Zeebrugge is one of the few ports that can easily receive the largest container ships thanks to its deep water and advanced terminal facilities. With a range of deep-sea and short-sea distribution options, and a network of intermodal services to reach markets and distribution facilities in the port area, the site is a logistics hub that meets the requirements of a very diverse customer base. Since the merger of the port of Antwerp and Zeebrugge, the port has entered a new phase of development, investment, and growth.
This is one reason why Ziegler chose this port as the site for its new location.
A grand opening ceremony for the new Ziegler branch at Karveelstraat 16 was held on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, marking the beginning of a new phase of growth for the Ziegler Group in the port of Zeebrugge. The meeting was inaugurated by Mr. Alain Ziegler, President of the Ziegler Group, with an opening speech, followed by a speech by Minou Esquenet, responsible for climate and energy, environmental policy, smart city, and facilities management at the Zeebrugge district office.
The new 9,855-square-meter Ziegler Zeebrugge branch allows for the further development of the Ziegler Group’s core business areas from this location. There is more than 3,500 m² of warehouse space in four buildings that are equipped with 8 gates, providing excellent opportunities for logistics and warehousing services for goods passing through the port.
The branch also provides an excellent base for ro/ro, freight to Ireland, and the UK unaccompanied. On the other side of the Channel, Ziegler UK is at the ready, both in the UK with 10 branches and in Ireland with locations in Dublin & Kilkenny.
The renovated facility meets the high sustainability standards of the Ziegler Group and its program “Ziegler. Now even Greener.” It is equipped with 511 photovoltaic panels on the roof of three of the warehouses, which is enough to produce 90,000 KW per year. The building is also equipped with a rainwater storage tank with a capacity of 10,000 liters. Both the offices and warehouses have sustainable LED lighting. And there are ten car-charging stations.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the grand opening event and we welcome you to contact our specialists in Zeebrugge for your transport needs.
