Expansion has 10,000 m2 of cold stores and packaging space

Three Dutch companies join forces for new DC's third phase

In the Netherlands, three companies have been operating from a joint distribution center since April 2020. Trofi/Trofi Pack, Van der Helm, and Fresh4U are based in the village of Den Hoorn. Now, 14 months later, they've joined forces for phase three of construction. It consists of a 10,000 m2 extension. That will house cold stores, with space for 1,500 pallets. And a 2,000 m2 packaging area.

"It's gone extremely fast. We can't complain", says Harry van den Hout on behalf of Trofi Pack. Asked about the success formula, he replies, "We never take no for an answer. And we completely unburden our customers. That seems to be working well. We regularly get new clients."

"We've all gained experience over the decades. We've combined that in this building. We have all activities under one roof. We can take care of retailers from A to Z. Customers can choose which services they want. From sea and air freight, transport to customs clearance, packaging, and order picking."

"We've partnered with Van der Helm. Thanks to that, we now have a 28-person customs handling team. That involves a lot of expertise. They draw up temporary import and export documents. They check and clear goods and apply for permits. And they take care of internal audits of customs processes," Harry says.

Marco Dächer, Menno Reijgersberg, Marc de Naeyer, and Harry van den Hout.

The DC's first phase already has cooling space for 3,000 pallets. And it has ripening cells for 500 more. With the completion of phase two, the surface area expanded to 16,000 m2. Another 10,000 m2 will be added in phase three. Phase three construction will start in August and should be completed by December.
