We are proud to inform you that the Venlo-Venray region has once again won the first prize in the election for Logistics Hotspot in het Netherlands. It hardly seems a coincidence that our region has won this prize for the seventh consecutive time! Of the six criteria used to weigh all applicants, the Venlo-Venray region obtained the highest possible score in four of them, according to a panel of 25 experts. The second place was a surprise this year and went to the Tilburg-Waalwijk region, which finally surpassed its western neighbors in the West-Brabant region (Moerdijk-Roosendaal-Breda-Oosterhout).

This joint conquering of the famous Tour de France ascent of the Col du Galibier (climbing for 42 kilometers to reach a height of 2,645 meters) is the ultimate team building activity, according to CEO Fred Spijksma. Together with bike shop Metropool in Venlo, the company facilitated brand new racing bikes and all required equipment to enable the eleven participating staff members to successfully complete this challenge in the Pentecost weekend in 2014.
