Announcing a new order fulfillment center in Tilburg, Netherlands

Expand your sales to customers in mainland Europe

After much anticipation, we’re excited to share that our newest order fulfillment center in Tilburg, Netherlands, is now open!

We have been busy preparing for the launch of our Tilburg warehouse and wanted to tell you about some of the added benefits this location brings.

Strategic location
Centrally located between Antwerp (Belgium), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Dusseldorf (Germany), Tilburg benefits from direct access to highways and nearby carrier hubs, making it an ideal location for distribution.

The fulfillment center is stocked by two nearby ports of entry: (1) Rotterdam for ocean freight shipments and (2) Amsterdam for air freight deliveries; Both are within 90 minutes of the facility.

What this means for merchants
The addition of the Tilburg fulfillment center means improved transit times and reduced transportation costs to reach your customers in mainland Europe.

The location complements our UK facility and expands options for fulfillment into Europe; it is particularly well-positioned for fulfillment into France, Western Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Using our fulfillment centers on mainland Europe and in the UK, you can place inventory more strategically than ever.

Preparing for Tilburg
If you’re interested in using the Tilburg fulfillment center, there are some steps you can take in advance:

  • Those new to Shipwire should contact our Sales Team for general getting started information.
