20,000 square meters. That’s how big Shimano’s new European distribution center will be as it moves from Nunspeet in the Netherlands to Tessenderlo in Flanders. At the site, Shimano will also modernize its logistics approach. “We used to do everything ourselves,” explains Lieven Bisschop, manager of Shimano Belgium. “Now, we are working with a logistics specialist: Kuehne+Nagel.”
The project includes the introduction of a high degree of automation and flexibility, adapted to the growing e-commerce business market. The modern warehouse, which is scheduled to become operational in 2023, will welcome about 50 new employees.
