Menlo Logistics to Open New Dutch Distribution Center
Menlo Logistics, the global logistics and supply chain management subsidiary of Con-way Inc., has inked a build-to-suit agreement with global industrial real estate developer Prologis Inc. for a new 210,000 square foot regional logistics facility in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
The facility will be located at the Acht industrial park in Eindhoven, adjacent to the A2/N2 Eindhoven ring road, which offers direct access to Belgium and Germany, as well as Amsterdam to the north. Construction of the facility will be one of the largest build-to-suit projects in the region.
Initial site preparation for the facility began in late July. Construction is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2016.”The Benelux region and Europe as a whole have always been strong markets for Menlo and represents some of our most promising growth areas, due largely to our presence in the healthcare sector, where we have served medical device manufacturers for many years,” said Robert Bianco, president of San Francisco, California-based Menlo Logistics. The new Eindhoven facility “complements Menlo’s European footprint, which includes a network of 16 facilities throughout Europe staffed by 800 employees.
The company currently services more than 30 European businesses and multinational companies in sectors such as healthcare, fashion and apparel, consumer goods, e-commerce, high-tech, industrial manufacturing and automotive, the company said.
The new distribution center, it added, will be a multi-discipline, multi-client facility “capable of supporting the local, regional and global supply chain operations of manufacturers, distributors and service providers across a variety of industries.”
