The Coronavirus pandemic has not only caused negative effects, but also significant structural changes. Companies are adapting their strategies and methods to match the changes in our ways of consuming. Consequently, e-commerce is booming all over the world. Maersk, a company developing solutions to meet customer needs from one end of the supply chain to the other, did not want to miss the boat. To facilitate the increase in e-commerce activity, Maersk needed to expand their warehouse capacity, preferably as close as possible to their current logistics facility with the ultimate goal of one large logistics campus.

 
“Thanks to outstanding service of our broker Christophe we realized a fix lease transaction with landlord Logicor. This resulted in a fantastic warehouse facility, adjacent to our existing logistics campus which caused bigger economies of scale. Just amazing.”
Luc De Beukelaar, MAERSK
