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.

XPO Logistics announced second quarter earnings and the acquisition of two companies, New Breed Logistics, a non asset-based 3PL focusing in contract logistics services, for roughly $615 million, and Atlantic Central Logistics, a 3PL provider of last-mile logistics services, for roughly $36.5 million.

The report, entitled “Outlook for the Domestic Transport and Logistics Market in 2H14 and Beyond,” takes the view that strong freight levels in the second quarter have left trucking companies in a good position: one in which they need to come up with new plans to handle rising demand. But even with that positive momentum afloat, the report observes that there are some familiar challenges intact, such as a lack of qualified drivers and the regulatory drag from the new hours-of-service rules that took effect in July 2013.

Flags of Convenience are a fact of life in the commercial maritime trade, but several European political action groups are worried that they will pose a threat to the Continent’s air cargo industry.
