DSV opens new 83,000 m2 Netherlands warehouse for consumer brands
Sep 03, 2018: Supply chain specialist DSV has opened expanded its existing campus in Venlo, The Netherlands, with more warehouse space no less than three times since its opening in 2008.
The newly built 83,000 m2 warehouse is already in operation.
With its prime location for large consumer brands’ distribution needs, the new warehouse and its associated logistics services meet the high demands of DSV’s consumer brand customers such as the American footwear brand New Balance, and several Scandinavian consumer brands like Thule, Stokke and many more.
The space is halfway filled, and the rest is fully booked for 2019.
“It’s really impressive to see how DSV’s property department manages to build this truly modern and very large warehouse in less than one year. It is equally satisfying to learn that all 83,000 m2 is already either in operation or booked to be filled within the next year,” Jens Bjorn Andersen, CEO, DSV, comments on the site in Venlo he visited on August 28 together with the Group Executive Committee.
“We have the highest security level obtainable (TAPA) to keep our customer’s inventory safe and secure at all times. As a modern warehouse facility, we also have specialised storage space and trained staff that can handle dangerous goods like highly flammable products,” informed Remco Innemee, senior director, Solutions.
He continues: “The site and the staff also have the capacity to meet the needs of the growing e-commerce industry and to keep up with the continued growth of our customers - part of the warehouse is even built in two levels for a double level picking area.”
The DSV site in Venlo employs 700 people with a planned scope of employing 1,000 by the end of 2019, to match the growth of the customers’ business and their logistics needs.
