“The Netherlands is a highly strategic logistics hub in Europe and our company
and our clients have enjoyed many benefits over the last 25 years from our
location in Apeldoorn,” said Scott Crawley, president, global operations,
sales and marketing, ModusLink. “Today, we are managing numerous supply chain
programs for global consumer electronics companies whose growth necessitates a
facility that is better designed in terms of warehouse space and layout,
shipping bays and with access to more transportation options. We have found an
ideal location in Venray and this move will improve our clients’ operations
while also benefitting ModusLink economically and competitively.”

ModusLink’s new Solution Center is located in an area of Venray that is home
to many logistics and transportation facilities. The geographic location of
Venray within the country offers easy access to major European highways,
river-based shipping and an extensive rail system. There are approximately 50
weekly inter-modal transportation service options for moving materials and
finished goods in and out of the logistics area by train and barge.

The new facility features 28 loading bays, 15,000 sq. meters of warehouse
space in a layout designed for storage and fulfillment, as well as designated
areas ideal for product assembly, configuration and packaging. A number of the
current ModusLink employees will be moving to the new location and the Venray
area boasts a skilled workforce experienced in logistics and supply chain
work.
