Nippon Express (Nederland) Building New Warehouse

Offering more than twice the space of the company’s existing facility, this new warehouse is being erected in Schiphol Trade Park, about 7 kilometers southwest of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one of Europe’s key hub airports, to cope with steadily rising air cargo volume.

Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification, a standard for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals, will be sought for the new warehouse to enhance NE Nederland’s distribution network for the pharmaceutical sector, which has been stipulated as a priority industry in the Nippon Express Group Management Plan’s “Growth Strategy for Core Businesses.” In anticipation of dealing with semiconductor-related equipment and other heavy or long-length cargo, a ULD handling system will be introduced to enable the facility to process 20-foot pallets. The roof will be outfitted with a 60m x 55m solar panel array to make the facility more eco-friendly.
