Log!Ville is the name of VIL’s future logistics demonstration centre in the Science Park in Niel (Antwerp). Log!Ville will be a landmark experience centre that focuses on logistics in its totality. The demonstration centre will be situated at the entry of the Science Park and will cover more than 2.500 m².
A large warehouse, a virtual room and a co creation room will be found on the ground floor of the building. Innovative products as well as processes will be demonstrated live to give companies the opportunity to test, compare and share knowledge. In order to use the provided space as optimal as possible, a mezzanine will provide room for offices and meeting rooms.
The logistics demonstration centre is to become an open and inspiring space for all Flemish companies in the logistics sector to watch, test and experience innovative technologies and concepts.
The primary target group are Flemish companies, large companies as well as SME’s: logistics service providers, shippers, retailers and suppliers of logistic solutions.
The secundary target group are the current and future logistics employees, the tertiary target group are foreign delegations and potential investors.
The first stone was laid on 22 May 2019. The construction of the building will be finished in May 2020, then VIL will start to set up the demonstration centre. In September 2020 Log!Ville will open its doors to the public!
The construction and exploitation of Log!Ville fits in an EFRO project, in which VIL cooperates with POM Antwerp. For this VIL and POM Antwerp receive 2.634.500 euros of support.
