Strategic location for Damco’s new commercial office in the Netherlands

Tilburg/Eindhoven (March 16, 2015 ) – Global logistics provider Damco opened a new commercial office in the Dutch city of Eindhoven. Crucially, it is located in the province of Brabant, home to one of Europe’s prominent high-tech regions and more than 1,500 businesses. Eindhoven is also an important hub for Damco’s existing customer base, with a focus on the Lifestyle, Technology and Industrial markets.

Centrally positioned between the port cities of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the German Ruhr area, Damco’s new premises in what has become known as the Brainport region will also provide excellent access to several key (potential) customers, shippers and suppliers. The Eindhoven base is also very close to the recently expanded barge terminal in Tilburg.

This new commercial office will offer supply chain management and freight forwarding services. It will be staffed by four logistics experts, led by Jeffrey van Vianen who brings extensive knowledge in airfreight, ocean freight and supply chain management solutions. Van Vianen adds: “The search for a new office was eased by the support of BOM Foreign Investments and their partners Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency and Brainport Development. BOM could provide us with helpful demographic, sector and market information which saved us a lot of time and efforts.”

Putting the opening in perspective, Jean-Baptiste Elslander, Damco’s Chief Commercial Officer for the Benelux, said: “Our ambition is to significantly grow our global footprint in the years to come. The opening of the office in Eindhoven is part of that ambition. We continuously want to review and improve the way we are set up in order to remain agile and responsive, delivering robust products and services quickly.”
