Following recent global contract wins GeigerBTC has opened a Distribution Centre and office in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Ideally located for goods arriving from all points of the compass, the DC will act as a hub for deliveries throughout Europe and the Middle East. The office will also serve as a central point for customs clearance. The location inside the European Union simplifies compliance with value-added tax requirements for EU customers outside the UK, according to Geiger.
Frank Murphy, Managing Director of GeigerBTC said “Having our own Distribution Centre, and office in Rotterdam enables us to further improve services to our many clients with operations in EMEA. This also protects our clients and us from any potential consequences of Brexit, if and when it happens.”
Jo-an Lantz, President and CEO of Geiger, shared “Clients are demanding global services for their merchandising programs, with local marketing support. The ability to provide a global supply chain is critical, and the new Rotterdam location supports our international strategy”.
