A gateway to the world
Our warehouse is located in Tilburg, in the south of The Netherlands. It provides a strategic location with excellent connections to the rest of the world. The central geographical position of the Netherlands, in particular our location in the south, offers great logistical advantages as it is close to the Port of Rotterdam, which is Europe’s largest and most important seaport. Moreover, we are centrally located between major European airports, such as Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, which is ranked as Europe’s best airport for both cargo and passenger transport and Brussels Airport. Furthermore, TNT, FedEx, UPS, and DHL all have transportation hubs in our direct proximity. Your logistic center in the Netherlands creates a gateway to Europe and the rest of the world.

We generate cycle counting reports, depending on your preferences. This will give you insight in your inventory status. We also offer physical inventory counting for example at the end of the year.
We receive products from your warehouse or from your suppliers. We perform quality checks and validate the Advance Shipping Notice with the actual shipment.

After we have picked the order we select the best carrier for shipping according to your requirements.
If your customer prefers to arrange the shipment themself, a notification is send out to you and your customer that the parcel is ready to be collected. We also ship on your customer account number if desirable so that they can control their own shipping expenses.
We provide various shipping solutions that will suit your needs.
