Samsung to work as a logistics service provider in Tilburg
Samsung, one of the world's largest electronics manufacturers, will be working as a logistics service provider in Tilburg. Samsung SDS, a subsidiary of the electronics giant, will open a 31,000 m2 distribution centre on the Loven III business park.
The Samsung SDS distribution centre in Tilburg is the fourth logistics centre in Europe to be fully deployed for external customers. In just a few years, Samsung SDS has grown into an important logistics player worldwide. Approximately 10 percent of the goods flow now consists of products from external customers.
"Logistics is crucial for our company," says Robert van der Waal, responsible for Samsung SDS' logistics activities in Europe. "That's why we've been taking care of our own logistics process for quite some time now. The combination of our many years of operational logistics experience and our software development power provides solutions that go beyond the level of many existing logistics service providers. We are happy to make this knowledge and expertise available to third parties".
Edwin Zonder, Senior Project Manager at BOM Foreign Investments, was closely involved in the arrival of Samsung SDS in Tilburg: "We see more and more large companies from the Far East making knowledge and skills available to third parties. This is a great development to which we would like to contribute. The fact that Samsung has chosen SDS Tilburg is not really a surprise. It is not without reason that the TilburgWaalwijk region was recently chosen by a professional jury as the logistics hotspot of the year.
