The latest from Arvato
L o a d i n g . . .
Arvato Benelux has begun operations in a new logistics center in the Netherlands to manage the most recent growth in the existing and new customer business. The new site in Venray, which the company moved into last September, offers room for future growth and further improvements in customer service. Existing and new customers benefit from the status of the new logistics hall as a customs warehouse and the certification as a “regulated agent”.
The new logistics center, around 25 kilometers north-west of Venlo, comprises 10,000 square meters of floor space and can be expanded by an additional 3,500 square meters. The site provides jobs for 50 to 100 employees and this number is scheduled to increase shortly.
Arvato Account Manager Willem Scheepers explains: “The new logistics hall is designed as a multi-user site. This concept guarantees that customers receive high quality service with the greatest possible flexibility and lowest cost.” Among other things, Arvato fulfills services such as distribution and returns logistics, repair and exchange services, e-commerce processing, customs and shipping management as well as other customer services in Venray. The goal of this broad portfolio of offers from a single source is to enable Arvato customers to reduce their total cost in the value chain. “Thanks to our late cut-off deadlines for orders and great flexibility we are especially able to perform when it comes to the support of online shops,” Willem Scheepers continues.
One more advantage is that the Arvato logistics center has a certification as a “regulated agent”. As such, Arvato can ship the goods of customers at the airport without further controls. From the new logistics hall, Arvato not only ships to customers in the western European markets but also throughout the entire European economic area, the Middle East and Africa due to the favorable connection to air- and seaports. “Since Arvato also has a customs warehouse license, goods that come to Venray from non-EU countries can be stored and then exported from the EU duty free,” Scheepers explains. “For our customers, this offers numerous advantages and fewer problems, allowing them to completely focus on their core business.” (benet)
