New warehouse improves Sandvik’s customer services in Benelux and Germany

An interview with Mr. Mathias Johansson, project manager at Sandvik Material Technology in Sweden by Tjaart Theron
‘Sandvik had two warehouses in the Netherlands, one in Schiedam and one in Venlo,’ Johansson explains. ‘The product group Fittings & Flanges had to be moved to Venlo, where 4,000 m2 of the 12,000 m2 was reserved for it. But we needed an entirely new concept for the warehouse to accommodate this move. Through this investment, the business area’s customers in the Benelux countries and Germany will receive a significantly faster and more efficient service. The relevant product can be delivered to customers within 24 – 48 hours if needed. Direct delivery to customers is a key competitive factor. ’
