Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition has chosen DSV Solutions to operate its global distribution hub at Venlo in the Netherlands on a five year contract.
The new 30,000 sq metre Nutricia-dedicated warehouse will replace the current country-based warehouses and will create around 100 new jobs at DSV, directly next to its existing location at Venlo Tradeport North.
Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition, which is part of Danone, provides medical nutrition products such as enteral clinical nutrition, dietary products and disease specific nutrition for children, sick and elderly people under brands such as Neocate, Fortimel, Flocare and Nutrini. Nutricia’s strategy focuses on improving service levels while reducing complexity and cost.
Rien van den Heuvel, managing director of DSV Benelux, said: “A major advantage in winning this new customer has been the excellent cooperation with local authorities, as well as the real estate developer Goodman, enabling us to quickly respond to Nutricia’s building requirements. Furthermore this new operation reinforces our vision in Venlo as a prime European logistics hub and underlines our historic and strategic commitment to the region”.
