Geodis Netherlands opens its new Airside Gateway at Schiphol, in order to meet the “tremendous growth in volumes” it is experiencing.
The facility promises the beginning of faster and safer airfreight handling, the logistics provider says. “Time is precious to customers and their demand for the quick delivery of goods is increasingly important,” Geodis notes. The Gateway being located airside will help meet these demands and at the same time enhance security, it adds.
Geodis Netherlands in reacting to the growth in volumes says its Amsterdam Gateway will further accelerate this expansion while anticipating the demands of the future market.
The Geodis Amsterdam Gateway (AMS-GTW) comprises 2,500 sqm of warehouse and office space directly next to the airport’s runway.
Ellis de Jong, operations director Freight Forwarding says: “We estimate that Gateway will bring a significant decrease in airfreight handling times, ensuring quicker delivery of cargo and a better service to our customers. Export wise, with Gateway we gain more efficiencies on the consolidation side.”
The Amsterdam Gateway is part of the long term growth strategy of Geodis, it says.
Thomas Kraus, president & CEO North, East and Central Europe says: “The opening of the Amsterdam Gateway is the next important step in both our regional planning and in our global growth ambitions. It will substantially increase our competitiveness and reinforce the crucial hubbing function of our airfreight operation in the region.”
