The Dutch Nieuwleusen-based Westerman Multimodal Logistics will set up a new transshipment facility, for handling combined container & truck sea-road-rail freight, in the Port of Malmö.
The investment, covering some 43k m2 across the Verkö 5 property managed by the Belgian landlord MG Real Estate, is expected to create 50 workplaces.
"We are looking forward very much to creating a strong logistics hub in Malmö where we can derive benefit from effective and sustainable solutions for transshipment via sea and rail. Malmö is perfectly located in the Northern European transport corridor," Lambert Van Dieren, CEO, Westerman Multimodal Logistics, commented.
Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO, Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP), added, "There is a clear demand for this service from the region's trade and industry and this investment will be a sustainable step in the work of moving freight from long distance lorries to rail and shipping in close collaboration both with us at CMP and with our other collaborative partners. Westerman's establishment will further reinforce the network in the port and together we can offer the customers even more solutions."
