“All great enterprises are about logistics. Not genius or inspiration or flights of imagination, skill or cunning, but logistics” Tom McCarthy
The logistics Industry is a vital part of the Dutch economy and typically generates more than €55 billion in annual revenue. It is therefore a key contributor to the Dutch economy employing more than 800,000 people, or 12% of the entire Dutch working force. Internationally, The Netherlands is regarded as a leading logistics centre, serving as the front door to mainland Europe. Its strategic location, world-class service providers, and highly developed infrastructure makes it the premiere choice for companies all over the world. International logistics hubs like the Port of Rotterdam and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol make The Netherlands one of the largest road transportation nations and the largest inland shipper in Europe.
Belgium is also considered a perfect country in which to set up a European logistics base and/or headquarters because of it’s skilled workforce, well developed infrastructure and central location relative to the rest of Europe. Key logistics include the port of Antwerp, the second largest European port after Rotterdam, the logistics areas around Brussels airport, and the growing importance of Liege airport.
Although the logistics industry is centred on transportation modes by sea, air, road and train, the need for value added services like warehousing, packaging or product assembly, and specialists in these fields, has also becomes more and more important.
