Friday 07 05 2021

Schmidt Belgium is doubling its storage capacity at the port of Antwerp. Six silos and a new warehouse will be built on the site. The transport and packaging company specialises in the handling and storage of polymers.

Schmidt Belgium is a subsidiary of the German transport group Karl Schmidt Spedition. The company specialises in services and storage for chemical companies and has logistics sites in Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Poland, Spain and Italy. Recently, the group has also commenced operations in Russia.


Main European gateway for polymers

With six new silos of 340 m3 each and the construction of a new warehouse of 5,000 m2, the company is doubling its storage capacity. Schmidt Belgium is consciously opting for expansion at their Antwerp branch. The port of Antwerp is the main European gateway for the import, storage and handling of polymers. This is due to the wide range of specialist logistics service providers and storage space, the excellent connections with the hinterland and the presence of the largest chemical cluster in Europe.
