  • DHL ouvre un nouveau centre de distribution à Anvers
    Le transporteur express DHL a procédé hier à l’ouverture officielle de son nouveau centre de distribution à Anvers, en la présence de la bourgmestre Leona Detiège.

La principale raison de l’ouverture d’une deuxième base au nord d’Anvers réside dans la problématique de plus en plus préoccupante des files en région anversoise, qui ne cesse de rendre plus difficile la vie du transporteur express alors que sa clientèle dans le centre-ville et la zone portuaire est en pleine croissance.
