Taillieu Logistique Nord (TLN) has opened a new warehouse, in the presence of Patrice Vergriete, Mayor of Dunkirk and President of Dunkirk Urban Community, and Dunkerque-Port's CEO Stéphane Raison.

On Friday 1 July the company Taillieu Logistique Nord (TLN) opened its new warehouse, which is located in the logistics park of the Western Port of Dunkirk, next to the Container Terminal (Terminal des Flandres). This 3,000 m² extension, representing an investment of 1.5M€, will increase the Belgian company's storage capacity and is expected to boost its logistics activities The many economic and institutional partners present, as well as the Port community, welcomed this new phase for TLN.

Filip Taillieu opened his first 3,000 m² warehouse in the Western Port of Dunkirk in 2008. Offering a range of logistics services – stuffing of containers for expert and stripping at import, storage of general cargoes, film-wrapping, bagging of wood, steel coils, sugar, construction materials and so on – the entrepreneur quickly built up a loyal base of clients who knew he would meet their demands.

This new extension, together with the 4,000 m² exterior storage yard, will encourage the growth of traffic through Dunkerque-Port.

Stéphane Raison, speaking at the opening ceremony, stressed the significance of this second warehouse: "This is an important event in the policy of reconquering our market, because although the region handles some 750,000 full containers every year, only 25% of this traffic currently transits through the Port of Dunkirk. The development potential is considerable, and the logistics sector accounts for 6,000 jobs and 1 million TEU."
