DLG expands at the Port of Aarhus
The Agriculture Company DLG has signed a long term agreement with the Port of Aarhus, which implies that DLG expands its activities at the port. There will be built 5,500 square meters of warehouses for storage of feed and related products in the Port of Aarhus Multi Terminal.
"We are pleased that DLG is going to fill more at the port, both physically and commercially. We have made it no secret that we have great expectations for the future cooperation in terms of both storage and import and export of goods," says Nicolai Krøyer, account manager at the Port of Aarhus.
DLG operates several locations in Denmark, but with the new agreement Aarhus will house one of the largest DLG stores in Denmark. The new, modern warehouse facilities also allow DLG opportunity to increase its operating efficiency and thus its competitiveness. The new cooperation agreement will run for a number of years, and part of the agreement deals with several specific objectives for cooperation.
"The past several years have seen a constant structural development in both agriculture and the industry's own companies - and thus also in the grain and feed companies. Previously there were many small companies, where as today there's only a few large ones. And most of them are customers of the Port of Aarhus. It is an advantage for us, but we also believe that it is an advantage for the companies, although there is competition between them," says Nicolai Krøyer.
"There is already talk about a cluster of companies where a number of them work as subcontractors. They will feel that there will be even more activity at the port," says Nicolai Krøyer.
