Japanese electronics company iiyama picks Geodis to handle European logistics
May 07, 2018: Supply chain major Geodis has entered into long term partnership with iiyama to provide the Japanese manufacturer of computer monitors and displays with a reliable and proven end-to-end solution.
As such, Geodis takes care of all customs handling, the transport of products from Rotterdam to Venlo (The Netherlands), storage & sales order processing at the Geodis Campus in Venlo and daily outbound transport to final customers.
"We are growing very fast," says Jeffry Pettinga, Sales director Europe at iiyama. "In addition, we see a market need for larger desktop monitors and (interactive) signage displays, which means we are faced with even further complexity in logistics. With a view to the future, we were seeking to select a logistics partner that will support us in reaching our growth ambitions.
"Geodis was selected as the preferred service provider following a competitive market test, involving multiple parties. Geodis’ knowledge and experience in the field of consumer electronics and high-tech, combined with warehousing flexibility in Venlo, were the key factors in the final stages of the selection process. Moreover, the integrated and control tower based outbound distribution service offering presents iiyama with a single point of contact for the entire scope of engagement.
"We are delighted to welcome iiyama as a customer in our 135,0000 square metre and fully developed Campus in Venlo,” says Marc Walbaum, deputy director for Contract Logistics at Geodis.
