On September 30, a delegation from the Chinese city of Gaobeidian, a suburb of Beijing, visited Wayland Developments. One of those visitors was Peng Shaohui of Xinfadi Agricultural Products Co. The company is interested in Wayland's development projects in Holland, like Glasparel+ Business Park and greenhouse park Siberia. In particular, the combination of logistics and horticulture within a business park and a residential area. Bert Cremers, mayor of the city of Waddinxveen opened the meeting and expressed the hope that it would be an inspiring business meeting.
Wayland Developments develops and implements business parks with great attention to sustainable water and energy systems. The latter will provide comfort and affordability, and in the long term will be essential for the sustainability of a business park. China has questions in this area and would like to know more. The visit to Wayland Developments had the character of getting acquainted and learning. Peng Shaohui: "The Netherlands is a leader in sustainable energy management and easily integrates sustainability in daily practice. Wayland Developments therefore is a good expert partner for us."
China's Logistics Park
The realization of Logistics Park A12 (40 hectares) in Waddinxveen has already begun. It is part of the large-scale Glasparel+ development (totaling 180 hectares), which includes horticulture, agribusiness and housing. Arnaud van der Eijk, Commercial Director of Wayland Developments: "The scale of Glasparel+ is very spacious for Dutch standards, but not comparable with what is available for multi-purpose facilities in the Chinese city of Gaobeidian. Xinfadi Agricultural Products Co. is the third largest supplier of agricultural products in China. It is a logistics challenge to supply a city like Beijing with fresh products on a daily basis. Wayland Developments is pleasantly surprised at the interest and is looking forward to the invitation to come to China."
