Arvato expands Gennep logistics centre

Arvato has expanded its central logistics centre in Gennep, the Netherlands. It has built two more facilities with a total of 26,000 sq m of warehouse space and 1,000 sq m of office space. It said the strong demand of international clients was the key reason for the expansion of the site that opened in Spring 2016.

Abdreas Barth, President High tech & Entertainment at Arvato SCM Solutions , said, “The expansion is in line with our strategy for the Netherlands. We are growing with our customers in the high-tech, consumer electronics, beauty & fashion, and healthcare industries.”

Customers from overseas in particular use the location in North Limburg with its good transport connections as their central warehouse for the European market, individualizing and distributing their products from here.

In addition to picking and distribution services, the site also offers more complex services such as bundling, product configuration, returns management and other value-added services. All in all, Arvato’s logistics centre in Gennep covers more than 56,000 sq m of warehouse space and 4,000 sq m of office space.
