Woodland Group opens first distribution facility in mainland Europe

We are proud to open our first warehouse in mainland Europe, a 34,649 sq ft eCommerce facility under the name Redwood Fulfilment BV. 

The new facility is a key addition to our growing footprint and adds capacity to our full European supply chain solutions, enabling us to deliver a seamless service to customers wanting to sell into both the EU and the UK while successfully navigating the most recent political and regulatory changes.

The new Redwood Fulfilment facility delivers warehousing & fulfilment solutions in Europe to our clients interested in a direct route to the European market and makes for a perfect pairing when combined with our established ocean and air services into Europe.

It provides streamlined distribution services to support the ongoing development of our B2B and B2C clients. Having onboarded three of our global clients in the Rotterdam facility already, we anticipates demand for our new European offering to continue to increase based on the trend of recent months. 

Strategically located within the Port of Rotterdam and close to one of Europe’s major airports, Schiphol, the new facility enables ease of access to major EU transport infrastructure, rail and road network between Europe’s largest ocean port and all industrial areas across the EU, Redwood Fulfilment offers extensive opportunities for storage with over 6,000+ pallet spaces. 

Johan Smink and Erwin Regtvoort head up the Redwood Fulfilment operations in mainland Europe. With more than 30 years’ experience in warehousing and distribution across both B2B and B2C fulfilment between them and having supported the eCommerce entry as well as large scale international growth of companies across a host of industries, Johan and Erwin are perfectly placed to successfully optimise clients’ fulfilment operations, introduce and develop the latest IT offering and guide clients through customs regulations and processes safely and efficiently.

“The opening of our Redwood Fulfilment facility in mainland Europe is a direct consequence of our dedication to finding solutions that will support our clients’ growth and guide them through the latest changes and challenges faced by the industry. This facility is able to provide an ideal bridge for our customers who wish to hold inventory in Europe”, Kevin Stevens, Chairman and CEO of Woodland Group, commented.

“Launching our first distribution facility in the Netherlands kicks off an exciting part of Woodland Group’s development as we continue to grow our footprint through 2021 and beyond to provide dedicated solutions to meet the needs of our clients. Redwood will represent our values of transparency, excellence and agility in business, and our focus on sustainable and strategic solutions to grow our clients’ businesses. Having Erwin and Johan head up the operations locally enables Redwood Fulfilment to deliver a huge amount of experience, the latest in technology and IT integration backed by a support network across the world through our owned offices and dedicated facilities.”, Kevin added.
