Van Moer Logistics has completed the acquisition of Rhenus Terminal Brussels NV. The terminal has an area of approximately 21,000 m², and contains a 250-metre quay with rail connection.
Besides the terminal activities, Van Moer Logistics confirmed that the in-house forwarding division of Rhenus Logistics will also be taken over. It will “seamlessly” join the forwarding division of Van Moer Logistics.
Last year, the terminal achieved a volume of 650,000 tonnes of transshipment and a turnover of around EUR 3 million.
Van Moer Logistics already operates Trimodal Terminal Brussels, which is adjacent to the Rhenus Terminal. As a result, Van Moer Logistics says its acquisition will create new synergies and opportunities for its customers.
According to Van Moer, the two terminals will work closely together and be able to “offer added value for the flows that are (or will be) handled today and in the future.”
The acquisition is said to be part of Moer Logistics’ intermodal strategy, which has seen the company acquire and develop several terminals and quays since 2011.
“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,” reads Van Moer Logistics’ press release concerning the acquisition.
