Why Outokumpu wants Terneuzen as business location
Efficient transport of stainless steel is essential. For large quantities, transport through the water is the only option. Therefore, the location on the canal Ghent-Terneuzen is extremely important. Because in addition to the water connection there is also a direct train and good (traffic free) road transport connections available, the facility in Westdorpe is an excellent location for supplying Western Europe. Transport of the finished product to the customer takes place via trucks, ships, trains, containers and intermodal (combined rail and road transport). Collaboration with numerous partners, logistics (transport companies, shipping companies, container companies) is therefore essential. - Outokompu
