Thetford opens distribution centre
In response to the growing market and global production of Recreational Vehicles, Thetford BV has opened a new Thetford European Distribution Centre (TEDC) in Etten-Leur. "We still have a big production facility in Etten-Leur, but more and more products are also delivered from our other production facilities in England, Italy, America and China. To organise the worldwide logistics as efficiently as possible and to further improve our service level to our customers, we set up a TEDC," says Johan Vincenten, Director Operations.
The TEDC covers more than 11,000 m2 and has room for over 10,000 pallets. The new warehouse can accommodate mobile sanitation systems, cooking appliances, refrigerators, service hatches and a wide range of toilet care and maintenance products. The products are distributed to customers in more than 65 countries across Europe, Australia, America and Asia.
"In terms of logistics, our relocation was a huge project; we couldn't inconvenience customers and deliveries simply had to continue," says Johan Vincenten, Director Operations at Thetford Europe. "I'm proud that, with the hard work of all involved and our good preparations, the relocation went smoothly and that we even managed to complete everything earlier than expected."
The address of the new distribution centre is Nijverheidsweg 9-11 in Etten-Leur, the Netherlands.
