The long-term lease agreement at Prologis Park Botlek DC2 offers Nippon Express the possibility to expand their global services. Being close to one of the most important transport arteries in the Netherlands (the A15 motorway Rotterdam-Nijmegen), and being near other important motorways and terminals make Botlek DC2 a great location, and a valuable addition to Nippon Express’ current warehouses in the area. The facility is fully equipped with LED lights including motion detection. Furthermore, the office is equipped with a heat pump and the outside of the facility enjoys ecological greenery and native plants to promote biodiversity. Together with charging points for electric bicycles and vehicles, these sustainable aspects contributed to its BREEAM Very Good certificate. Marijn van den Heuvel, Capital Deployment & Leasing Director Benelux adds: “We are delighted to partner with Nippon Express, because they not only want to become a reliable partner for every customer, but also want to provide added value to society via logistics. In that mission, we see a perfect match where our values of customer centricity and providing sustainable solutions align.”
