PSA BDP opens new EV battery warehouse in France

PSA BDP, a provider of globally integrated and port-centric supply chain, transportation, and logistics solutions, announced the inauguration of its new Electric Vehicle (EV) battery logistics warehouse in Dunkirk, France.

With this warehouse, PSA BDP aims to offer contract logistics services to the region’s rapidly growing Auto EV cluster. The facility is BREEAM* certified and meets the highest standards for sustainable EV battery handling, including in-rack sprinklers, temperature and humidity cameras, quarantine containers and water basins.

Moreover, in April, PSA BDP announced the agreement to handle the contract logistics and hinterland transportation for Automotive Cells Company (ACC) in Dunkirk.

More specifically, a joint venture between Stellantis, Mercedes-Benz and TotalEnergies, through its subsidiary Saft, ACC is establishing its first gigafactory in Billy-Berclau in Northern France.

Pascal Reinards, head of business development at PSA BDP, commented, "This new and specialised warehouse addresses all supply chain needs of the burgeoning EV battery industry in Northern France."
