Docdata Fulfilment B.V. in Waalwijk, a subsidiary of the listed company DOCDATA N.V., entered into a new cooperation agreement with bol.com on 17 June 2011 for a period of 5 years.
The agreement includes the delivery by Docdata to bol.com of a complete range of fulfilment services, for which exclusivity has been agreed with regard to the delivery of some product categories in the Dutch and Flemish market. Since August 1999, bol.com is a customer of Docdata Fulfilment and has since then grown to the most leading ecommerce platform in the Benelux.
The current product range of bol.com includes books, vinyl, CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, electronic game software and hardware, toys and an extensive range of electrical and electronic equipment. This makes bol.com currently one of the largest customers of DOCDATA N.V.

The rented building will be fully equipped by Docdata. This will involve investments in 2011 and 2012 for a total amount of around EUR 7 million.
