AGRO Merchants Groups’ facility in Rotterdam-Maasvlakte operates an integrated Inspection Post, that will now extend its operational hours to late evenings. This will allow AGRO to provide a faster and more flexible route to market to their customers. Due to increased demand for the service, extended hours will allow AGRO to inspect larger volumes each day and better accommodate their customers.

“We have experienced increased demand for our services, especially at the Inspection Post, so it made sense for us to extend the operational hours,” says Peter van der Kolk, Managing Director of AGRO Merchants Netherlands. “We want to provide a level of flexibility to our customers and whenever it is possible, we optimize our services to help them make their supply chain more efficient.”

AGRO’s site in Rotterdam-Maasvlakte was inaugurated in December 2016 and the flexible multi-temperature cold store handles a wide range of frozen and chilled commodities. The warehouse space offers the possibility to develop custom packaging areas and a wide range of additional value-added services.

The facility has a BREEAM Excellent rating for environmental sustainability, which is the highest energy efficiency rating for this type of storage facility in Europe.
