Europe's leading logistics location
The Netherlands is a hub for foreign-owned logistics and distribution operations. In fact, Holland is the true gateway to Europe and home to an abundance of European and regional distribution centers across a multitude of industries, including agrifood, fashion and medical technology.
Driven by world-class seaports, centrally located airports and an extensive, modern network of roads, railways and navigable water, Holland’s logistics infrastructure and the presence of top-notch logistics service providers is a major asset to companies looking to establish international logistics/distribution operations in Europe. What’s more, 170 million consumers can be reached within 24 hours of Amsterdam or Rotterdam, making the Netherlands the perfect springboard into European markets.
Add to that, Holland’s supportive tax structure, highly educated, multilingual workforce, robust supply chain and advanced network of suppliers, and it’s no wonder that major multinationals such as Coca-Cola, IBM, Samsung, TEVA and Tommy Hilfiger choose the Netherlands as their logistics and distribution gateway to Europe, to manage their supply chain or to grow their e-commerce operations.
The Digital Gateway to Europe
According to OECD the Netherlands is the second most wired country in the world, so it’s no surprise that it’s Europe’s hotspot for leading information and communications technology companies. In fact, 60% of all Forbes 2000 companies active in the IT industry have already established operations in Holland.
