1 Belgium Logistics, your competitive gateway to Europe 1

2 Preface Belgium is the perfect country in which to set up a European logistics base, headquarters or distribution center because the country s infrastructure, skilled workforce and the IT opportunities make it an ideal location from which to conquer the European market. The Belgian forwarders and logistic service providers orchestrate the supply chain and ensure the smooth purchase and delivery of your goods by sea, inland waterways, short sea, rail, road or air. Central location One of the key reasons for selecting Belgium as a launch pad is its location at the heart of Europe, lying between northern and Mediterranean Europe. Paris (an 80-minute train journey away), London (111 minutes), Amsterdam (113 minutes) and Frankfurt (202 minutes) are all less than 300 km away and Belgium s very highly developed transport network, comprising roads, waterways, railways and airports enables both passengers and freight to be transported quickly and easily. European logistics center Another key component in Belgium s transport infrastructure is its many seaports, including Antwerp, the second largest European port. The Port of Antwerp offers considerable maritime and multimodal strengths. Thanks to the productive transshipment, the enormous storage capacity and the diverse offer of added value services, the Port of Antwerp is like the supermarket of Europe, where all products are stored in specialized facilities and transported. 2

The Belgian forwarder provides services of any kind relating to the carriage, consolidation, storage, handling, packing or distribution of the goods as well as ancillary and advisory services in connection therewith including customs and fiscal matters, procuring insurance and collecting or procuring payment or documents relating to the goods. These services can be tailored to meet the flexible application of the services provided. Belgian logistic providers are well known for their flexibility as they always act solution driven, their creativity as supply chain designers, their quality through professional certification by the authority and their proximity as they operate multilingual and are connected through electronic community systems to the entire world. 3
