IJS Global, a worldwide logistics service provider, has officially opened its new world headquarters in Amsterdam. Situated at Schiphol airport and alongside the main A4 motorway, the new facility more than triples IJS Global’s warehousing space to over 5,400 square metres, provides additional office accommodation (2,000 sq metres) at the same time as providing easier access and manoeuvring for customer vehicles through the incorporation of 20 truck docks.
“Through the move to these new premises IJS Global will be able to operate more efficiently and we now have both our head office and our main Dutch facility situated in the ideal location at Schiphol Airport to grow our business,” said IJS Global’s CEO, Sjoerd van Loon.
“In just our sixth year of operation it is a tremendous testament to the work of our global team that we are now able to move our world headquarters into a building such as this. We have specifically chosen to develop an existing building rather than going for a green-field site in order to minimise the environmental impact of our move. At the same time we have specified a refurbishment which incorporates the most modern technology to ensure that our environmental footprint impact is minimised,” he added.
