Belgium: top location for logistics!

In previous articles, we have already discussed the main decision factors that determine your choice in outsourcing your logistics. These articles focused mainly on your own processes and the needs in your operation. We deliberately paid less attention to the importance of a good location. After all, it is obvious that when you do business internationally, your location has an enormous influence on:

  • The speed with which you receive your manufactured/ordered goods
  • The speed with which you get orders to your customer
  • The cost of your transportation
  • The language in which you will be helped further 

In short, choosing the right location definitely contributes to the added value you can offer your client!

Now let it be that, from a European and even global perspective, Belgium is a real top region. It is not for nothing that since the Middle Ages several countries were already trying to consecrate us.

Even studies by Cushman & Wakefield from 2004 call Belgium, and even more specifically Limburg, a prime location from which to easily arrange your European distribution.

Our strengths are therefore:

  • Central location in Europe and the world 
  • Logistics is in our DNA 
  • Very strong accessibility by rail, road, water and air. 
  • Above all, more and more a culture of innovation.

This last point of innovation definitely deserves much more attention. So we will look at this in detail in a subsequent article. Innovation is the most important dynamic, which ensures that you always find the right answer to your customer's question. In Limburg alone, there are several campuses supported by the province and LRM that stimulate this innovation in different sectors.
