Kubota selects Rotterdam for products distribution in North Europe

Japanese machine manufacturing company Kubota has chosen the Port of Rotterdam and the region of Alblasserdam in the Netherlands as a distribution centre for its products in Northern Europe.

The site of the port area is strategically located next to BCTN’s container terminal and will be Kubota’s operating base for deliveries to the Northern European market.

Emile Hoogsteden, Commercial Director of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, welcoming the new port's tenant stated, "The arrival of Kubota shows that the port of Rotterdam is an excellent location for companies that aspire to Northern European distribution."

The President of Kubota Europe SAS, Corporate Executive Officer Kubota Corporation, Nobushige Ichikawa said that the Japanese company's tractors division imports many products from North America and Asia, so having a distribution centre in Europe would be very efficient.
