Since 1 March, the logistic support at the border inspection posts on the left and right bank has been provided by Van Moer Logistics. The GIPLO and GIPRO check and inspect on the spot the goods that are brought from and to the Antwerp port.
Van Moer Logistics is responsible for the moving, opening, loading and closing of the containers that are selected for inspection after scanning. The activities were assigned to the logistics service provider after a public market consultation by the port authority.
Flexible labour pool
A joint pool of 12 experienced port workers is used for this, and they are managed by the central operations of Van Moer Logistics in Antwerp. Partly thanks to this flexible attitude, the family business was appointed to support customs and the FAVV at both inspection posts.
In the first phase, the activities will be taken over one by one. Afterwards, Van Moer Logistics will examine, together with the port authority, the possibilities to further optimize the operations on the one hand and to create more transparency in the data transfer on the other hand.
Jo Van Moer, founder and CEO Van Moer Logistics: "This is a great expansion of our activities within the port of Antwerp. We look forward to the fine cooperation with both customs, the FAVV and the port authority."
