By Kate EdwardsReuters, Jan 21, 2018 11:48:50Dillon, France – The world’s biggest logistics hub is reworking how it handles its cargo to move goods from one country to another.
As the global shipping market shifts, the new logistics hub at the French port of Dix-en-Foy will need to find ways to handle the volume of cargo it needs.
The center will be the largest of its kind in Europe, with more than 20,000 containers.
Dix-En-Fay will be built around a facility that is the largest container facility in the world, according to the French company’s president, Laurent Moulard.
That will include an 8,000-hectare (13,000 acre) site, the largest warehouse in Europe.
The facility will house more than 50,000 employees.
It will be staffed by engineers and workers from various sectors.
Dillon-based logistics company Axle is building the center with a partnership with the United Kingdom’s Dix Enterprise, an international logistics company.
Axle will handle the shipment of food, beverage, medical supplies, electrical goods and other items, including clothing and furniture.DIX Enterprise is already one of the world’s biggest logistics companies, with 7,500 employees, according.
It also operates in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Germany.
Moulard said the logistics center will handle containers and will be fully operational by the end of 2019.
“We’re trying to develop a better relationship with the shipping sector.
It is not just a logistics center, but a logistics hub.
We need to make sure we’re building relationships and understanding that our supply chain is really important,” Moulards said.
He said the company was looking at a variety of options to increase the volume it handles.
“There is an increasing need for shipping in Europe and we want to develop the capacity to handle this volume,” he said.
Axl will use the Dix Enterprises warehouse to process cargo and to process logistics contracts, he said, adding that the facility could handle up to 5,000 tons of cargo a day.DICKINSON, UNITED STATES – Jan 20, 2018 05:58:18The U.S. has some of the fastest shipping rates in the developed world, and it’s not just because it’is the fastest growing economy.
Its also a world leader in delivering goods from coast to coast, said John Dunn, president and CEO of Global Shipping Partners.
The U.”s world class shipping has been an enormous benefit to the United State, Dunn said.
U.s companies are able to ship goods to customers around the globe and it has helped U. States trade partners to export goods to other countries, including Australia, Canada and Mexico.
Dunn, whose company handles shipping for over 200 U. S. companies, said he wants to see how the logistics industry will react to the new center.”
The idea that there are a whole bunch of logistics companies trying to solve a problem and a whole lot of people trying to find solutions for the same problem is very, very scary,” Dunn said, referring to the rapid growth of logistics.
Dixon Enterprises is the first logistics firm in the U.K. to enter the global container market.
It has warehouses in the Netherlands and Denmark, and its ships can carry up to 1,000,000 tonnes of cargo at a time.
The company expects to have a shipping terminal in Britain by the year-end.DINDRIN ANDERSEN, NORWAY – Jan 19, 2018 06:59:20Dixon and Andersen, Norway, are in the midst of a huge project to build a major new logistics facility in Denmark.
The Danish company has built a shipping hub in the city of København in southwestern Denmark.
It is expected to handle some 2,000 ships a day, with the goal of delivering as much as 8,500 tonnes a day by 2021.
It plans to create more than 200 jobs, mostly in logistics.
In Norway, Larsen & Alberts, which has an office in Copenhagen, has a large warehouse that can handle more than 12,000 trucks a day and has invested heavily in its operations.
It opened a new facility in Oslo earlier this year.
A new facility will help boost Norway’s exports to other markets, including the U., according to Larsen&Alberts chairman Peter Larsen.
