Major logistics transaction at Willebroek with COLLIERS INTERNATIONAL



Colliers International has announced that it has acted in a transaction which sees Barsan Global Logistics running its Benelux logistics operations from Kersdonk Logistics Centre in Willebroek, owned by Goodman. The new location will serve as the Benelux distribution centre for FMCG operator Barsan.

On December 1st, the Belgian branch of the Barsan Group will thus centralise its logistics operations in the Benelux to the Kersdonk Logistics Centre having signed a long term lease for 50,000 square metres.

“Barsan Global Logistics Business Development Executive Mehmet Can Günaydın explains: “Barsan Group operates in 67 locations throughout 29 countries worldwide as we pride ourselves on our speed to deliver for our customers. We chose to base our Benelux operations in the Kersdonk Logistics Centre because it is conveniently located, is a high-quality warehouse for our staff and provides great access to key modes of transportation, which is essential in our business of delivering for our customers – fast.” Barsan joins 2 other customers at Kersdonk Logistics Centre which is now fully leased.

The Kersdonk Logistics Centre has multimodal accessibility thanks to its proximity to the Willebroek container terminal, and is located on the Antwerp-Brussels axis, a strategic area for logistics operators. The site is also accessible to the N16, A12 and E19 motorways, connecting it to the whole of the European road network and national air traffic.

John van Paassen, director at Colliers International Belgium, comments: “This important transaction with Barsan, one of the largest in recent years, confirms how the Flemish Diamond, and the area of Willebroek more specifically, offer excellent multimodal opportunities for logistics players.”
