German brand study calls Holland a top trade partner
The Netherlands is the most attractive logistics location among Germany’s top trade partners, according to the 2016 Image Ranking for Transport and Logistics Services, a brand study from German magazine VerkehrsRundschau. The Netherlands topped the list, scoring highest of 15 countries, with 748 out of 1,000 possible points, while Austria and Belgium rounded out the top three.
The German magazine, together with Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, honored the Netherlands with the award for Best European Logistics Location during the VerkehrsRundschau Gala on February 18, 2016 in Munich.
The brand study surveyed 400 logistics decision-makers at German industrial and commercial companies, who cited the “quality and availability of logistics service providers, as well as the good connection to motorway networks,” as the most important factors in determining a country’s value as a European location for logistics and distribution.
