Nippon Express, through local subsidiary Nippon Express (Nederland) BV, opened a logistics centre in Nijmegen, located in the southeastern province of Gelderland in The Netherlands.
The new logistics centre, with 8,444 square metres of warehouse space, started operations in March and will be used as a European parts centre for Takeuchi Manufacturing, which develops, manufactures and distributes small construction machines. This brings the total warehouse space of Nippon to 200,000 square metres across the Netherlands, as the company looks to further strengthen its logistics operations in the country.
“In addition to serving as a gateway for both air and ocean cargo and possessing a highly developed intra-regional transport network, the country offers non-resident customs clearance and tax incentives that have enticed many customers to select it as a logistics hub,” the company said in a statement. “The southern part of the country is particularly close to Germany’s largest markets, making it an optimal site for setting up logistics locations,” it added.
