Toyota to reorganize European distribution

Toyota Motor Corporation is to reorganize its distribution function within Europe. In 2003, the company plans to transfer and integrate its logistics bases in Germany to its state-of-the-art facility in Zeebrugge, Belgium. The move is intended to reduce distribution costs by improving operational efficiency. It will also integrate the four vehicle logistics bases in Scandinavia into one, at a distribution center in the port of Malmö, Sweden, with which it has signed a new contract.

This is part of Toyota's plan to halve its 13 European vehicle logistics hubs and around 20 vehicle warehousing bases over the next few years, in order to strengthen the profitability of its European business.

The Toyota Vehicle Logistics Center in Zeebrugge, Belgium, is a brand-new facility which was opened in July 2001. It serves the Netherlands, France and Belgium, and with the addition of Germany, it will consolidate its role as a northern European distribution hub.
