Largest ADR distribution centre in The Netherlands on Maasvlakte for Neele-Vat Logistics

Neele-Vat Logistics has started construction on a brand-new ADR distribution centre on Maasvlakte. Paul Neele, son of CEO Ron Neele, drove the first pile on June 17th in the presence of over 100 colleagues. It will be the largest warehouse in the Netherlands for packaged dangerous goods (ADR): sustainably built, equipped with the best technologies available and run by specialist employees. Neele-Vat Logistics will start using the additional storage space in December 2015.

The new distribution centre on Maasvlakte has more than 20,000 ADR pallet positions (divided into seven compartments configured in accordance with the PGS 15 directive), a highly innovative extinguisher system based on CO2 and an office within the building covering a total of approximately 14,000 m². With this expansion, Neele-Vat Logistics is doubling its total ADR storage space up to 40,000 pallet positions. The new building will be located beside the existing ADR warehouse on Maasvlakte.

Storage of dangerous goods is a growth market
”With this investment, we are strengthening our position”, says Cuno Vat, Director of Neele-Vat Logistics. “There is a lot happening in the dangerous goods market. More and more products are being designated as dangerous. In addition, the storage requirements are being more strictly enforced and storage must take place as far as possible from any residential areas. You can’t get further away than Maasvlakte”.

The first pile was driven on June 17th.
