Kolb Moerdijk outsources internal logistics and reduces transportation costs
Interview with mr. Niels Wessel, site controller of Kolb Moerdijk by Marcel te Lindert
Almost fifty years ago dr. Werner Kolb founded a company in the village of Hedingen. When the production plant got too big for this small village in Switzerland, Kolb started looking for a second location in the EU.

We are connected with Shell by a pipeline”, says Niels Wessel, site controller of Kolb Moerdijk.
