Van Moer Logistics just acquired 100 percent of the shares in Trimodal Terminal Brussels NV.
The trimodal terminal has a surface area of 17,100 m², a quay of 235 meters and rail connection.
In 2020 the terminal handled 30,000 TEU and generated a turnover of 1.85 million EUR.
The takeover is part of the intermodal strategy of Van Moer Logistics, which is fully committed to inland shipping and has been operating various terminals and quays since 2011.
As co-owner, Van Moer Logistics operates the Antwerp ATO terminal and owns the Dennie Lockefeer Container Terminal on the Antwerp - Grobbendonk axis.
On the Antwerp - Leuven axis, Van Moer Logistics manages the terminal in Wilsele and on the Antwerp-Brussels axis the quays of Blue Gate Antwerp, Bornem, Vilvoorde and now also the TTB terminal.
With 9 of its own inland vessels and 5 pushbarges, Van Moer Logistics relieves its partners from their logistical challenges by offering integrated intermodal logistics.
Synergies Van Moer Vilvoorde
Because TTB and the terminal at Cargovil Vilvoorde are close to each other, new synergies are created.
The two terminals will no longer compete with each other and will both be able to add value to the flows currently handled.
This way, the own inland vessels can also be used more efficiently thanks to the additional terminal capacity.
Via the extensive network of the logistics service provider, new flows will also be attracted to both terminals in the near future.
With this new acquisition, Van Moer Logistics is highlighting its growth ambitions.
The logistics service provider wants to continue to contribute to the modal shift and sustainable logistics.
In Brussels, the company sees opportunities for water-bound urban distribution, with which it already has experience in Antwerp.
Van Moer Logistics will contribute to the further sustainable development of the Brussels port area and the creation of additional employment.
Finally, the takeover of TTB could also create new opportunities for developing flows to and from Wallonia in the future.
