Nippon Express (Nederland) completes construction of Schiphol Airport Logistics Centre

Nippon Express (Nederland) B.V., a local subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd., has completed construction of its Schiphol Airport Logistics Centre in Schiphol Trade Park and held a ceremony on Thursday, July 15, to mark the occasion.

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.
