Nippon Express (Nederland) has announces that they have begun construction on a new warehouse in Schiphol Trade Park, about 7 kilometers southwest of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Offering more than twice the space of the company’s existing facility, this new warehouse is near one of Europe’s key hub airports and is being built to cope with steadily rising air cargo volume.

Nippon Express says they will seek a Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification, a standard for the proper distribution of pharmaceuticals, for the new warehouse to enhance NE Nederland’s distribution network for pharmaceuticals, which has been stipulated a priority industry in the Nippon Express Group Management Plan’s “Growth Strategy for Core Businesses”. In anticipation of dealing with semiconductor-related equipment and other heavy or long-length cargo, a ULD handling system will be introduced to enable the facility to process 20-foot pallets. The roof will be outfitted with a 60m x 55m solar panel array to make the facility more eco-friendly.
