New cross-docking center for Forbo

An interview with Mr. Kees van de Lagemaat, logistics manager at Forbo Flooring in Assendelft (The Netherlands) by Marcel te Lindert

Until recently, each of Forbo Flooring’s 12 factories shipped their completed orders directly to the relevant customers. As a result, clients would sometimes receive as many as six different trucks at once, all delivering Forbo products to their premises. That has now changed with the opening of a new distribution center in Assendelft, The Netherlands, which not only offers extra warehousing space but also serves as a cross-docking center. This generates considerable savings for the manufacturer of linoleum, vinyl and other floor coverings.
