Ultimate Benchmark for a Gateway to Europe, 2010

Benchmarking the Nether lands as Gateway to Europe

October 03, 2011

The value of the Netherlands as a logistics hub for European and global supply chains is best illustrated by comparing it with the ongoing competition from our neighboring countries. Based on the market experience of Holland International Distribution Council (NDL/HIDC) and discussions with our members and our contacts in the international business community, we know how important a detailed impression is of where the Netherlands ranks vis-à-vis competitors such as Belgium, Germany and France.

Therefore, in 2004 and 2007, we commissioned Buck Consultants International (BCI ) to conduct a benchmark study to compare the relative attractiveness of different European logistics hot-spots.  The next version of this benchmark will be released at the end of 2011.
