Southern Netherlands is the heart of the Netherlands’ inland region. An important logistics center, it is considered an extended gateway to Europe. A dense network of canals, railroads and highways connects Southern Netherlands to the Port of Rotterdam on the North Sea and other important waterways.
Key submarkets for industrial property and warehouses in Southern Netherlands are Moerdijk, Tilburg, Venlo and Eindhoven. Moerdijk is located at the Hollands Diep, an estuary of the Rhine and Meuse rivers, which makes it a deep-sea harbor. Tilburg is a major hub, while Venlo scored highest in our research that examined the factors shaping Europe’s most desirable logistics locations. Eindhoven, also known as the “Brainport,” is the center of the Netherlands’ high-technology and information technology industries. The global electronics giant Philips is based in Eindhoven, as well as such multinationals as ASML, NXP Semiconductors and VDL Berkhof.
Southern Netherlands borders regions of Germany and Brussels that are highly industrialized and densely populated. Accordingly, Southern Netherlands is an important logistics node, linking the inland of Europe to the coast and markets beyond. Many global brands locate their European distribution centers in this region, serving both the surrounding areas and the entire EU.
