The Netherlands plays a key role in our globalised economy, by connecting producers and consumers worldwide. The success is based on an alignment of cutting-edge infrastructure and world-class service providers, and the coastal location at the heart of Europe. Both are supported by world class logistics service providers and an extensive network of road, rail, waterways and pipelines. This powerful combination has allowed the Netherlands to become the Gateway to Europe, accounting for significant parts of European road and water transport. The Netherlands also makes extensive use of IT to deliver optimized supply chain solutions, for example in time-critical areas like food and flowers. In addition, the country is making pioneering e orts in environmentally sustainable logistics and silent logistics.

Without transport, everything would come to a standstill. Whether it be supermarkets, museums, libraries, concert halls or dairy farms — they all need transport for their daily activities. Every day, hundreds of thousands of Dutch lorries ensure that goods are delivered safely and on time to national and international destinations. Life without transport would not only be difficult, it would also be nigh on impossible.

FGHS Logistics offers logistic services aimed at sustainability and innovation. In addition, logistic collective arrangements are agreed upon with logistic service providers transporters and offered to the members of FGHS. Logistics is a major cost item for suppliers. Transport costs in particular have been growing for years. Given the problems around fuel prices and city distribution this will only increase. Logistic costs are influenced by scale to a great extent. Transport in particular becomes cheaper the more you cluster. In the fragmented logistic world of the FGHS members and their clients there is much to gain for that reason.
