The company will continue to operate from its headquarters at the AMS Cargo Center in Rozenburg.
Top location for various industries
SEGRO Logistics Centre Schiphol is a modern and future-proof warehouse of 17,000 m² at Schiphol Tradepark - Skyzone A4. The logistics building was completed in April 2020 and immediately put into partial use by GEFCO Forwarding Netherlands. With the lease of Unit B to RIF Europe B.V., the complex is now fully leased for the long term. Eelco Ouwerkerk, Head of SEGRO Netherlands: "The lease to RIF Europe shows that we can actively serve our customers in different sectors. Because of the various facilities, such as the possibility for cooling, the optimal security of goods and the proximity to the airport, the location is suitable for various industries. We are pleased to be able to facilitate RIF Europe B.V. in their strong growth in the Netherlands."
SEGRO Logistics Centre Schiphol is a modern and sustainable building with BREEAM Excellent certification. It was one of the first completed buildings at Schiphol Trade Park to be developed by SADC with very high sustainability ambitions. Among other things, the building uses heat and cold storage, its energy consumption is low, and a sustainable lighting plan has been implemented which incorporates as much daylight and LED light as possible.
