Holland’s Logistics Leadership
The Netherlands is a true gateway to Europe as home to abundance of European and regional distribution centers across a multitude of industries like agri/food, fashion and medical technology. With world-class seaports, airports and modern roads and highways, the country is a leader in European logistics. For these reasons along with Holland’s supportive tax structure and highly-educated workforce, companies like Coca-Cola and IBM have chosen the Netherlands for their European operations.
