Van Moer Logistics has completed the acquisition of Rhenus Terminal Brussels NV ("RTB").
RTB has an area of approximately 21,000 m², a 250-metre quay with rail connection and is located next to the already existing inland terminal of logistics group Trimodal Terminal Brussels ("TTB").
Besides the terminal activities, the in-house forwarding division of Rhenus Logistics will also be taken over, they will seamlessly join the forwarding division of Van Moer Logistics.
In 2021, the terminal achieved a volume of 650,000 tonnes of transshipment and a turnover of around EUR 3 million.
Synergies Trimodal Terminal Brussels
The fact that RTB and TTB, which is also part of Van Moer Logistics, are adjacent to each other creates new synergies and opportunities for Van Moer Logistics' customers. The two terminals will work closely together and will be able to offer added value for the flows that are (or will be) handled today and in the future.
The acquisition is part of the intermodal strategy of Van Moer Logistics, which is fully committed to inland shipping and has acquired and developed several terminals and quays since 2011.
Van Moer Logistics operates the Antwerp ATO terminal as co-owner and owns the Dennie Lockefeer Container Terminal on the Antwerp - Grobbendonk axis. On the Antwerp-Leuven axis, Van Moer Logistics operates the terminal in Wilsele and on the Antwerp-Brussels axis the quays of Blue Gate Antwerp, Bornem, Vilvoorde, the TTB terminal and now RTB.
With 9 barges and 5 barges, Van Moer Logistics relieves its partners of their logistics challenges by offering integrated intermodal logistics.
Van Moer Logistics is highlighting its growth ambitions with this new acquisition. The logistics provider wants to continue contributing to the realisation of modal shift and sustainable logistics. In Brussels, the company sees opportunities from, among other things, water-bound city distribution, with which it already has experience in Antwerp. Van Moer Logistics will join in the further sustainable development of the Brussels port area and job creation. Finally, the acquisition of RTB can be a springboard to develop future cargo flows to and from Wallonia.
