NSRN’s founding member Langowski Logistics recently inaugurated another one of their own warehouses in Gdansk, Poland. This 3500 m2 warehouse is located in the Goodman Pomeranian Logistics Centre, with the DCT Container Terminal, A1 Highway and S7 road within close range. This is Langowksi Logistics’ second warehouse in Gdansk. The first warehouse was opened in 2017 and functioned as high bay storage. With the growing demand for warehouse logistics, Langowski decided to expand the total area to 7000 m2.
Disparities in global trade is a significant indicator of inequality in the world. Many countries which were invisible to superpower economies are now coming to the forefront thanks to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). China’s BRI has created opportunities for countries that were ignored in the past decades, by investing in their economies, building infrastructure, and easing border regulations. A great example of this is the growing developmental projects in the numerous countries that form the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
A founding member of New Silk Road Network (NSRN), Hövelmann Logistik has acquired 20 hectares of property on the Highway A2, in Irxlebe, Hohe Börde close to the city of Magdeburg, in the state of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.
The first three warehouses in Irxleben are approx.13,500 sqm in size and were put into operation last year. These warehouses mostly hold textiles and small furniture. Additionally, the picking of small furniture is a B2C business setup. Up to 5,000 orders are processed here every day, which are then transported to the consumers by various parcel service providers.
NSRN founding member Langowski Logistics (formally known as Langowski Shipping) was featured in a Chinese Documentary series called “Yu Sees the New World”, produced by Henan Television (HNTV). The episode titled ‘One Belt One Road Research’, features managing director Tomasz Langowski with the presenter of the episode, taking him on a tour of their Warsaw warehouse.
Joining a network is a strategic decision for many companies. It means being part of a community of like-minded people, who have the common goal of expanding their business network, learning from the experience of others, and in the end turning this into profit growth for themselves. The question arises, how should one use a network?
