Originally opened in 2012 with a focus on the fast-growing temperature-controlled transportation segment, the C H Robinson office in Rotterdam, Netherlands has increased its offering to incorporate the entire C H Robinson road transport service offering portfolio.
Strategically located near the Rotterdam harbor, which plays a key role in the import and export of goods into Europe, the Rotterdam office will be using its local knowledge to assist global shippers. The shift to providing additional road transport services, where temperature-controlled transportation still remains important, provides global shippers access to the entire continent through one point of contact.
To lead the continued office growth and development, C.H. Robinson has appointed Arjan-Olivir van der Woning as the new Rotterdam branch manager. Beginning his transportation career in 2005 with UPS, van der Woning has held a variety of sales and account management positions with Maersk, Damco, and more recently the Dutch transportation provider De Rijke Logistics.
“Arjan has a wide range of experience in selling and managing customers spread across various industry verticals, including the chemical vertical. There is a large amount of opportunity in the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg) marketplace,” said Chris Mills, director of European transportation at C H Robinson.
Since 1993, C H Robinson has built a network of more than 50 offices with 1,000-plus employees throughout Europe to become one of the leading transportation and logistics companies in the region. The company has shown its commitment and investment in Europe by recently opening an office in Hamburg, Germany.
C H Robinson Europe is a subsidiary of C H Robinson, based in Eden Prairie MN. Founded in 1905, it is one of the largest logistics companies in the world, providing global freight services, logistics outsource solutions, fresh produce sourcing, and information services to customers worldwide. The firm operates through a network of offices in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.
