WDP developing new Global Distribution Centre for Barry Callebaut

When chocolate, logistics and a sustainable future all blend together

WDP develops projects to get your teeth into: construction of the new worldwide distribution centre for Barry Callebaut in Lokeren. The world leader in cocoa and chocolate products looked for – and found – the perfect partner in WDP to implement its audacious plans for the future. And in one fell swoop took a giant step towards the greening of its logistics processes.

Forever Chocolate, Forever Logistics

The plans look very promising. This is the site for a brand-new, sustainable warehouse complex that is totally energy-neutral and packed with the latest technologies. Totally in line with Barry Callebaut’s ambitious Forever Chocolate sustainability goals. Logistical efficiency and intelligent design combined to include innovative solar panels, geothermal energy, electric recharging points and smart bike facilities.

Handover in 2021

The new site is located at the E17/4 industrial park in Lokeren and will be handed over in the third quarter of 2021. Fancy a taster? Then take a look at the site.
