Crane Worldwide Logistics has invested in a warehouse facility near Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands.
Located at the Schiphol Logistics Park, the facility will help Crane to increase its supply chain solutions in continental Europe, as it has direct links to Rotterdam port and mainland Europe.
Crane’s Schiphol facility runs a 24/7 aircraft on ground (AOG) operation and is “ideally located to serve aerospace and aviation clients”.
Gulhan Isik, managing director at Crane Worldwide Logistics Netherlands, commented: “During the last six months, we have received an increase in requests for additional storage capacity in Amsterdam as well as our other facilities in Holland, such as Tilburg. There is certainly a notable shift in interest that is favourable to us here in the Netherlands.
“As an AEO certified logistics provider, we are excited to expand our capabilities to our clients with additional warehouse space and value-added services such as kitting, bundling, packing, labeling, and customised solutions for our clients.”
Jason Stretton, regional vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa at Crane Worldwide Logistics, added: “Peak season is expected to start early this year; we already see early signs of increased demand for air freight due to the troublesome scenario facing ocean freight shipments.
“With capacity challenges into Europe from China, it has made sense for our clients to increase inventories in mainland Europe. In the past year, we have opened four new contract logistics sites and are grateful to our clients and employees for their continued support. Crane Worldwide Logistics will continue to invest where our clients need additional services at this challenging time.”
