Nippon Express Co., Ltd.

Situated in Schiphol Trade Park about 7km southwest of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, a major European hub, the Centre offers twice the space of NE Nederland’s existing warehouse while being an eco-friendly facility with a 60m x 55m section of its rooftop covered in solar panels.
The newly opened location comes fully equipped with dedicated temperature-controlled spaces for pharmaceutical products that allow for storage in three temperature ranges -- 15 C to 25 C (constant temperature), 2 C to 8 C (refrigerated) and -15 C to -25 C (frozen)-- as well as dedicated truck docks to better serve the logistics needs of customers in the pharmaceutical industry. Envisioning the need to handle heavyweight and long-length cargo such as semiconductor-related devices, ULD-handling systems capable of processing 20ft pallets have been introduced with the aim of handling more large cargo items.

As it aims to expand its logistics services in the Netherlands with the establishment of this new Centre, NE Nederland will be stepping up its efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, both designated priority industries in the Nippon Express Group’s business plan.
