The Netherlands sits at the heart of Europe’s largest consumer region comprising France, Germany and the UK. In addition to serving as a gateway for both air and ocean cargo and possessing a highly developed intra-regional transport network, the country offers non-resident customs clearance and tax incentives that have enticed many customers to select it as a logistics hub. The southern part of the country is particularly close to Germany’s largest markets, making it an optimal site for setting up logistics locations.
The new Logistics Center will be used as a European parts center that meets the storage, distribution and other needs of Takeuchi Manufacturing Co., Ltd., which develops, manufactures and sells small construction machines.
With the establishment of this Logistics Center, NE Nederland will have more than 200,000m2 of warehouse space across the Netherlands, and it will be working to further enhance its logistics operations in the country’s south.[Description of business]
