Amsterdam ‑ IJS Global opened its new world headquarters in Amsterdam, with more than 200 guests and dignitaries in attendance.

Jos Nijhuis, President Schiphol Group, IJS Global’s CEO, Sjoerd van Loon, and Chairman, Henk Hartong opened the facility.

Situated in a prime location right on the airport and alongside the main A4 motorway, the new headquarters more than triples IJS Global’s warehousing space to over 5,400 square meters, provides additional office accommodation (2000 square meters), and allows easier access and maneuvering for customer vehicles through the incorporation of 20 truck docks.

“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 minimize 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 minimized. All the lighting within the facility is LED-based with daylight dimmers, we have no traditional radiators on the walls, the heating system cools or heats only when there are workers in the room and we have had extra thick windows installed to ensure maximum insulation combined with excellent sound-proofing,” said van Loon.

“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,” he added.

Nijhuis welcomed IJS Global to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. “IJS Global brings extra expertise, experience and business to the airport. A rich variety of logistics providers attracts more cargo and creates more dynamism. That enhances quality and reduces prices. The ‘homecoming’ of IJS Global strengthens our ambition to be Europe’s preferred airport, not only for passengers, but also for cargo”.
