Busan Port Authority and Port of Rotterdam Authority signed a contract for the issue of a five hectare site on Maasvlakte Distribution Park West. This makes the South Korean port authority the launching customer for the industrial site. Of the seven remaining plots, 6 are however already reserved. Busan Port Authority is developing a sustainable 30,000 square metre warehouse on Maasvlakte Distribution Park West, for use by various, mainly Korean, service providers.

Mr Ki-chan Nam, Busan Port Authority CEO, said that “For us, the Port of Rotterdam is the perfect location to run a warehouse. The optimal deep-sea port infrastructure and multimodal connections with other countries makes Rotterdam the ‘connected’ port in Europe and the best location for Korean logistics companies to do business in Europe.”

Mr Emile Hoogsteden, Director of Containers, Breakbulk & Logistics at the Port of Rotterdam Authority, said that “We have been cooperating with Busan Port Authority in many areas for quite some time. We are proud that they will be the first party to realise their own warehouse on our new distribution park. Moreover, their sustainable ambitions are a seamless match for our objectives. It is expected that the warehouse will receive a BREEAM-NL Outstanding certificate.”
