DSV to build new warehouse in the Netherlands to meet e-commerce demand

Danish freight forwarder DSV is to expand its warehousing facilities in the Netherlands to meet the growing demand for e-commerce business.

DSV recently acquired an additional 140,000 square metres of land adjacent to its facilities in Venlo, and the lot is to be developed with a further 83,000 square metre of warehousing.

The new facility will feature a high level of automation, specifically geared towards handling of small orders that are typical for e-commerce.

DSV Solutions Netherlands managing director, Peter van der Mass says: “In 2019, we will complete the construction, which will bring the total managed surface of logistics operations in Venlo to 210,000 square metres not including the DSV Road cross-docking terminal located 2 km south.

“We are expanding due to a strong growth in demand for logistics services in the region, notably fuelled by increased e-commerce activities.”

DSV says Venlo is strategically located with optimal access to large consumer markets and the area has been awarded the title for European Logistics hotspot for years in a row, which has been underlined by well-known consumer brands selecting the location for their regional warehousing and distribution.
