Approach the Netherlands With Insight

Seasonality Shifts by Trade Lane

Transatlantic trade through Holland has no peak season, while transpacific trade peaks in the fall and winter before the major Chinese holidays, much as it does between the USA and China.

Different Final-Mile Options

Especially from Rotterdam, truck or barge are final-mile options instead of rail. Truck is typically faster but more expensive than barge. Choose a freight forwarder who knows the ins and outs.

Exit Europe by Water or Land

Rotterdam is often used as a gateway for export cargo from Southwest Germany and Switzerland. There are weekly barge connections along the Rhine river, as well as rail connections.

Flow Through the Gateway to Western Europe

The Netherlands is a small country with an outsized role in global trade. Choose a freight forwarder that can make this gateway to Europe an even more valuable part of your supply chain.
