Fowler Welch expands continental operation

Poeldijk, Netherlands: Fowler Welch is moving its Netherlands operation from Maasland to a larger site near The Hague.

The new site on the ABC Westland commercial hub in Poeldijk has a 10,000sq metre warehouse increased capacity for docking.

The new location has transport links to the UK via ferry and by road to the principal conurbations and manufacturing centres in northern Europe and will allow Fowler Welch to expand its continental operations.

In addition to its ‘bread-and-butter’ road and ferry-based services, Fowler Welch BV will also focus on its airfreight business, with operations out of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Westland to London Heathrow.

Fowler Welch’s year-round operation in the new depot will deal with ambient and temperature controlled transport and consolidation.  The latter including produce, salads, fruits, plants and flowers to all the major supermarket chains.  A daily groupage service is also provided to the Channel Islands.

Bas de Koning, general manager, Fowler Welch BV says: “We’re excited about the move to Poeldijk.  I believe we can realise our full potential from this location.  Poeldijk places us at the centre of one of the primary transport hubs on the European mainland.”

“The Netherlands gateway has always been an integral part of the Fowler Welch business model, and this latest move is a clear indication of the company’s commitment to business in the area and across Northern Europe. It will really boost our standing in the immediate and wider European markets, and will provide an even better service for our customers,” he says.
