SEKO Logistics Global Expansion Continues with Major Investment
At 80,000m2 this new facility is double the size of their previous locations in the Dutch capital and has the capacity to offer a complete logistics service providing customers with fulfillment solutions, cross-border e-commerce, international and Omni-Channel transportation all under one roof.
Due to the increase in size at the new location SEKO Logistics growth will be accelerated throughout their core verticals for the industry; industrial, technology, automotive, energy, medical, government, retail and trade shows.
SEKO Logistics Final Mile and White Glove services development will be spearheaded across the continent by the new Amsterdam operation as new distribution channels are opened into Europe for U.S. retailers.
With the operation SEKO now has the ability to handle e-commerce and retail, multiple wholesale fulfillment including returns and reverse logistics. Another benefit from this new location will be satisfying the increased demands for their value-added services, which are light assembly, quality control, re-packing, kitting, labeling and removal of price tags. SEKO Logistics also provides a lot of their customers with cross-dock services in Amsterdam.
The new building can hold 5,500 pallet positions with enough storage for 6,500 individual stock units. A high-value stage cage of 10,000 sq ft is also installed at the site along with a segregated area for dangerous goods.
Managing Director of SEKO Logistics, Benelux & Germany, Bob van der Putten said, “We needed this expansion to keep pace with our growth in the Netherlands, which is being driven by demand for our eCommerce fulfillment, Omni-Channel and cross-border expertise. Given Amsterdam’s importance at one of world’s leading logistics gateways, it is also the right location to lead the planned development of our Final Mile and White Glove services in Europe, using the experience we have already gained in the U.S, market. This expansion puts us on track to achieve record growth in the Netherlands in 2018.”
