Following the growth of existing customers and the increase of new customers, arvato Benelux B.V. has moved into a new warehouse on a central location on the industrial area in Venray per September 2013. This extension offers more room for growth and better customer service. Besides that, the new arvato customs warehouse and the Regulated Agent certification offer significant benefits for customers.

The new warehouse is sized 10.000m2 and can extend with a further 3.500m2. The new building provides employment for 50 to 100 employees. In the short term this will increase even further.

arvato Account Manager Willem Scheepers: “arvato performs work in the new warehouse in accordance with the multi-user concept. This concept ensures customers to enjoy a high level of service with flexible scalability at low cost.” The services provided by arvato in Venray include Forward and Reverse Logistics, Repair & Refurbishment Services, E -Commerce, Customs and Transport Management and Customer Service. This broad service portfolio from a single provider, enables arvato clients to reduce their total supply chain costs and increase shareholder value by innovating and improving entire business processes, rather than just individual elements. Scheepers adds: “We are good at servicing online shops, thanks to our late order cut off times and high flexibility. Moreover, we serve our customers with a state of the art SAP warehouse and TMS system.”

The arvato warehouse is certified for Regulated Agent. As a Regulated Agent (accredited air cargo agent) arvato may send customer goods without the extra screening at the airport. From the new warehouse arvato serves not only customers on the West European market, but EMEA wide. The convenient location of airports and seaports offers them an attractive environment.

Scheepers: “Because arvato is in possession of a customs warehouse license, goods imported from outside the EU entering the warehouse in Venray can be stored duty free. Then again, these goods can also be sent outside the EU. For our customers this offers many advantages and less worries, so they can focus on their core business.”
