2XL to open 60,000-pallet warehouse in Dourges

31 Aug 2017 | Front page, Investment

Transport/logistics specialist 2XL selects Dourges and its Delta 3 multimodal platform for a new warehouse and distribution center.

New warehouse and distribution center

Belgium’s 2XL is opening its fourth warehouse at the Delta 3 multimodal platform in Dourges. With maximum capacity of 60,000 pallets, the unit will handle storage, order preparation and transport for 2XL customers, creating 60 jobs.

Why Hauts-de-France?

The region is #3 in France for logistics and transport, with some 60,000 jobs in the industry. And for 2XL, its excellent infrastructure and location were unbeatable arguments:

  • Ideally positioned between the United Kingdom and the Benelux
  • Rail and waterway connections bringing markets in Northern Europe and southern France closer
  • Multimodal solutions: the 300-hectare Delta 3 site features 330,000 sq m of cutting-edge warehouse facilities
  • Major companies already operate in Northern France, offering scope for new synergies

Robust growth

2XL is a family-owned international transport and logistics business specializing in consumer goods. Its mission: striving constantly to find innovative, cost-effective supply chain solutions that improve the environment. Founded in Belgium in 1999, it is now part of the EMVI group, which has 400 employees in all.

By 2020, 2XL plans to expand the scope of its logistics chain to cover everything from packaging and labeling to distribution—all within a single logistics chain.
