How WDP supports the most ambitious cross-border logistics strategies.

WDP offers its clients the most suitable logistical platform needed to optimize their business operations. In bringing out the best, nothing can hold us back, not even borders. Our clients’ ambitions are our foremost guiding principle. DB Schenker’s newest distribution centre in Contern (Luxembourg) is majestic proof of our limitless capabilities.

A cross-border, long-lasting partnership

DB Schenker’s current distribution centre in Venlo was a WDP project as well: a most successful one for that matter. So, when this client was on the lookout for expansion opportunities at a strategic location in the heart of Europe, WDP was the go-to partner to engage in writing the next chapter of their logistics story.

We’re significantly expanding our presence in the Luxembourg market.”

Axel Quadt, Managing Director at Schenker Luxembourg GmbH

There’s an ever-increasing demand for temperature-controlled storage, for Healthcare and Pharma, among others. Our newest facility meets the most diverse requirements that our clients might have, from storage and handling climate-controlled cargo in transit to expanded value addition and land transport services.”

Expansion in Luxembourg, supported by proper infrastructure

And there’s more! Our new logistics hub boasts two Unit Loading Device systems, significantly increasing our loading and unloading capacity for air freight. Thanks to this new distribution centre, we’re stepping into the future with even greater ambitions.”
