White Paper A Balanced Location Selection


At the seminar of Nederland Distributie Land (NDL) on November 1st, 2011, Groenewout presented the results of a benchmark study on the optimal location for a European Distribution Center. Alain Beerens co-presented with Matthijs Weeink, Partner at Investment Consulting Associates.

A multi disciplinary view on the optimal location of your European Distribution Centre:

  • Chief Financial Officer: “what is the cost optimal distribution concept, both on OPEX and CAPEX”
  • Chief Executive Officer: ”how does the distribution concept support the long term corporate strategy and mitigate its risks”
  • Chief Operations Officer: “how do we align the global corporate footprint and synchronize its supply chains”
By using a corporate business case technique, Groenewout integrated and quantified these different business perspectives into its 2012 NDL Benchmark Report. This benchmark report was a co-authorship between Groenewout, ICA and Mazars, and it demonstrates a business case methodology adopted by many international companies on distribution location analysis. The assumptions and industry figures used in the business case are based on actual investment cases and best practices to ensure reliable and consistent results.
