Tigers Continues Global Growth with New Mega Hub Facility in Rotterdam

Tigers is building a new mega hub facility in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as global customer demand and the e-commerce sector continue to grow.

The multi-million-Euro mega hub is currently under construction and is scheduled to be officially opened in April 2020, providing another flagship location for Tigers in Europe.

“Rotterdam is the biggest port in Europe and a key gateway to the continent for the supply chain, which is why Tigers has been based there for the past 20 years,” said Shahar Ayash, Managing Director – UK and Europe, Tigers. “The mega hub will be an advanced omnichannel fulfilment centre and Tigers’ biggest single operation in Europe, which is being built with longevity and sustainability in mind. E-commerce has also been a huge factor in this development with 70 per cent of orders processed in Rotterdam related to the e-commerce sector, which is set for even further future growth.”

The new mega hub will replace Tigers’ existing Rotterdam facility and will be more than 550,000 sqf, have 60,000 pallet positions, and 550,000 bin locations. The hub is also being built with solar panels on the roof to create a sustainable structure and will be equipped with Tigers’ Cloud-based SmartHub:Connect technology.

“The new facility will be just 10km from the Port of Rotterdam with close proximity to major road and rail networks, making it strategically located for both first and final mile,” said Ryan Balic, Regional Director Sales, Europe, Tigers. The mega hub will allow our customers to accommodate organic growth and benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, including enhanced security features, multiple storage and picking processes, dedicated B2C returns and VAS processing areas, and an increased number of conveyor scan-pack stations.”

The Rotterdam mega hub is part of an ongoing global expansion plan for Hong Kong-headquartered Tigers, and the facility is being constructed by real estate developer DHG.
