Bakker Belgium, a Greenyard subsidiary, has selected Goodman Group’s Boom Logistics Centre as its logistics base for the distribution of fruit and vegetables in Belgium for Delhaize.
Bakker Belgium and Goodman have signed a lease for 22,881 m² of warehouse space. Extra office space and parking facilities will be developed. Bakker will be moving into its new space in fall 2019.
Sara Van Hoecke, Country Manager Goodman Belgium said, “The Boom Logistics Centre will enable Bakker Belgium to ensure the continuous distribution of fresh produce throughout the country due to its strategic location. It is located on one of the main logistics axes in Belgium, connecting Antwerp and Brussels, with direct access to important motorways like the N16 and the A12.”
In line with Goodman’s focus on quality, the distribution centre also provides Bakker Belgium with a high-end logistics space. Boom Logistics Centre is equipped with ultramodern technology. It boasts LED technology, motion sensors and highly insulated outer walls in line with leading sustainability practices. The clear height space of 12.20 m and the excellent location near the A12 and E19 allows Bakker to efficiently carry out its logistics operations.
Sara Van Hoecke concluded, “We are proud to be able to support Bakker Belgium in this phase of its growth and will continue to work closely with the company as it continues to grow.”
