GEFCO, a world leader in multimodal supply-chain solutions and the European leader in automotive logistics, is opening a new Amsterdam warehouse to support expansion in its Air & Sea business operations.

The 7,000m² facility, opening in June 2020, will provide storage and transport management services for customers at the global hub across the High Tech & Home Equipment; Aerospace & Defence; Automotive; Life Sciences & Healthcare; Bodycare and Retail & Fashion sectors.

The centre provides integrated logistics operations for standard, dangerous or temperature-controlled goods including time critical services for urgent shipments. Its close proximity to Schiphol Airport will provide fast and efficient inbound and outbound connections, with the additional benefit of being close to Amsterdam and Rotterdam Ocean Ports.

The facility also provides high security levels including constant 24/7 monitoring. The new centre is Good Distribution Practice (GDP) compliant and ISO 9001:2015 certified, demonstrating its adherence to quality standards, notably in the pharmaceuticals space.

This site complements GEFCO Air & Sea’s temperature-controlled, Life Sciences & Healthcare distribution centres at Heathrow, England, and Frankfurt, Germany.

Paul-Henri Freret, Executive Vice President, GEFCO Air & Sea, commented: “With outstanding connections to all major transport carriers and close proximity to Schiphol Airport and major ports, the new facility is perfectly placed to support our growing Air & Sea operation.”

Emmanuel Arnaud, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, GEFCO continued: “The centre will be invaluable in driving new business opportunities as well as supporting international growth of our existing customers.”
