Since July 2018, the fenaco cooperative has been operating 50,000 m3 of warehouse space at the port of Birsfelden.
Every day, grain and protein are transshipped loose or in containers by ship, rail and lorry. The independently run silo enables agricultural goods to be transshipped efficiently.
Optimum handling of domestic harvests in the region of Basel – for LANDI Reba to replace the Dreispitz site.
Efficient transshipment of the necessary additional imports for our clients (protein and grain) by all means of transport.
The Swiss federal government is maintaining obligatory reserves to ensure the security of supply for emergency provision phases. On behalf of the Swiss federal government, réservesuisse ensures that the necessary quantities are stored by private companies in Switzerland.
Thanks to the construction of the Auhafen site, fenaco is helping to ensure that this necessary storage space is provided.
According to the fenaco principle – “we conduct our business activity in an economically, socially and ecologically sustainable way” – this site is exceptionally well-equipped for shipment by rail.
Relief for the Basel city traffic thanks to rail shipment and direct access to the motorway for lorries. There is also an agreement with the Energy Agency of the Swiss Private Sector to increase energy efficiency further – during construction, great attention was paid to energy efficiency.
