DSV further expands its warehousing footprint in the Netherlands

DSV has announced that it will add another 30,000 sq m to its current logistics facilities in Venlo, the Netherlands, bringing the total logistics surface to 120,000 sq m. The new warehouse will be the company’s third full service logistics facility in Venlo and will be located adjacent to its two other logistics sites, situated just 1 km down the road from the DSV Road terminal. The expansion will create 100-150 new jobs.

According to DSV the Venlo area has consistently ranked as the top logistics hotspot for European distribution centres over the past seven years and has traditionally been a stronghold for both logistics and road operations. The current multi-user warehousing operation already has a wide variety of consumer products and healthcare customers that use Venlo as a hub, from which they serve their entire European customer base.

DSV states that the new facility was needed to accommodate the organic growth generated by existing customers as well as the addition of several new contracts. “We see a growing demand for order fulfilment, especially from companies that are active in e-commerce” said Peter van der Maas, Managing Director at DSV Solutions, the Netherlands.
