Woodland Group opens first location in the Netherlands

“Finding solutions that will support our clients’ growth”
Woodland Group is to open its first warehouse in mainland Europe, a 34,649 sq ft eCommerce facility in Rotterdam, Netherlands, under the name Redwood Fulfilment BV. 
Redwood Fulfilment was born to facilitate the growth potential of Woodland Group’s clients through a direct route to market in mainland Europe. It provides streamlined distribution services to support the ongoing development of Woodland Group’s B2B and B2C clients. Having on-boarded three of its clients in the Rotterdam facility already and based on the trend of recent months, the Group anticipates demand for its new European offering to continue to increase. 
Strategically located in the Waalhaven District of the port of Rotterdam, directly connected to the rail terminal and on the main route between port and connected industrial areas, Redwood Fulfilment offers extensive opportunities for storage with over 6,000+ pallet spaces. 
Johan Smink and Erwin Regtvoort head up the Redwood Fulfilment operations in Rotterdam. With more than 30 years’ experience in warehousing and distribution across both B2B and B2C fulfilment between them and having supported the eCommerce entry as well as large scale international growth of companies across a host of industries, Johan and Erwin are perfectly placed to successfully optimise clients’ fulfilment operations, introduce and develop the latest IT offering and guide clients through customs regulations and processes safely and efficiently.
Kevin Stevens, Chairman and CEO of Woodland Group, commented:

“The opening of our Redwood Fulfilment facility in Rotterdam is a direct consequence of our dedication to finding solutions that will support our clients’ growth and guide them through the latest changes and challenges faced by the industry, amongst them the UK transition and impact of Covid-19.
“Launching our first distribution facility in the Netherlands kicks off an exciting part of Woodland Group’s development as we continue to grow our footprint through 2021 and beyond to provide dedicated solutions to meet the needs of our clients. Redwood will represent our values of transparency, excellence and agility in business, and our focus on sustainable and strategic solutions to grow our clients’ businesses. Having Erwin and Johan head up the operations locally enables Redwood Fulfilment to deliver a huge amount of experience, the latest in technology and IT integration backed by a support network across the world through our owned offices and dedicated facilities.”
