Exactly 65 years ago today OBA has started as a company. What started with a sign on the facade of a canal house in Amsterdam has since grown into a dynamic transshipment company in the @Port of Amsterdam. OBA has a turbulent history that is full of beautiful and surprising moments.
Our jubilee year has been characterized by the commissioning of warehouse 6. This warehouse, with a capacity of 33,000 cbm, is intended for the storage of a variety of dry bulk products. The commissioning of the warehouse further expands the covered storage capacity to 181,000 cbm.
The expansion of covered storage capacity ties in with the company’s strategy of becoming a multipurpose terminal. Market developments are demanding more high-quality covered storage capacity for a variety of products including mixed animal feeds, minerals, construction materials and biomass. In line with this development, OBA is pushing to further diversify its dry bulk portfolio.
We thank all employees, customers and business contacts who contributed to the success of OBA and look forward to the future with you!
