IN COOPERATION WITH DANONE AND ITS LOGISTICS SERVICE PROVIDER XPO LOGISTICS, A SUPER-SMART DISTRIBUTION CENTRE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED; VARIOUS AUTOMATION SUCH AS ROBOTIC ARMS AND AUTOMATED GUIDED VEHICLE SYSTEMS ARE USED TO SPEED UP THE DISTRIBUTION OF PRODUCTS.
The completely gas-free distribution centre will help Danone to achieve a CO2-neutral operation at this location in the coming years. VWLD is developing the DC according to BREEAM qualification Very Good.
In addition to the operational advantages of the new DC next to Danone's production location, the Laarakker industrial estate is also situated very favourably due to its proximity to the A73 (Nijmegen - Venlo), which offers fast access to Germany and other destinations. In addition, Cuijk, with its own container terminal, also offers the possibility of water transport (the Meuse). This is the reason why various companies with national and international distribution networks - such as Essity, SCA, Aviko, Nuvita and GW Damen - have preceded Danone in choosing Cuijk.
