Venlo-Venray: No. 1 logistics hotspot in the Netherlands

Posted on in the category News

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). City councilor of Economic Affairs for the city of Venlo, Mr. Stephan Satijn, responded enthusiastically to the news that our region once again proved to be the best choice for logistics: “This is a great boost for Venlo, but also a reason to work even harder and expand our success.”

At GEBA Trans, we take great pride in being a part of a region for which transport and logistics are so important. This news is a great continuation of our earlier news update in which we shared that the Venlo region also maintains high scores on a European scale in terms of logistical appeal. No other than Logistics Real Estate developer Prologis announced at the end of 2013 that Venlo is the very best location in Europe to establish oneself for logistics.
