MOL Logistics warehousing in Tilburg
Due to the central location of our warehouses, in close proximity to the multimodal rail and barge barges, many of our customers use this more environmentally friendly transport. About 80% of the containers transported from the port of Rotterdam to MOL Logistics’ warehouses go by rail or barge. In this respect, we work closely with BTT Multimodal Solutions. They operate the barges for both rail and inland navigation in Tilburg.
Supplying these barges on a daily basis avoids congestion from the seaport as is often the case when loading onto trucks. It is also more cost-effective compared to road transport.
Transport by train is an excellent alternative to ship or air transport. It is cheaper than air freight, and faster than sea freight. According to a fixed schedule, goods trains run daily from Tilburg to destinations throughout Europe and China. The average transit time to and from China is only 14 – 19 days.
