Nike unveils distribution centre for ‘supply chain of the future’

Nike has taken another step towards its goal of becoming a closed-loop business with the latest expansion of its European Logistics Campus in Belgium, which promises to make the sportswear giant's operations more efficient, responsive and sustainable.

The new site - unveiled late last week - is the fifth time Nike has expanded its Belgium facilities. It is powered entirely by renewable energy, drawing clean power from wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric and biomass sources.

Meanwhile, the firm has cut transport emissions to and from the campus by 30 per cent by prioritising waterway deliveries via a network of canals.
