SP Express Announces Netherlands Expansion

PHOENIX, June 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Express, a leading U.S. provider of logistics and order fulfillment services, is pleased to announce an Agreement in Principle with Janssen Distribution Services B.V. The planned joint venture will allow SP Express to offer more efficient and cost-effective fulfillment solutions to sellers targeting marketplaces in any of the 28 countries of the European Union.

"For consumers in the E.U., shipping costs can be a major barrier to purchasing U.S. goods," says Dave Crowder, Director of Corporate Development at SP Express. "Our partnership with Janssen allows manufacturers to ship raw product intended for the European market directly to a Netherlands location for kitting, packaging, warehousing, and fulfillment, resulting in significant savings."

Additionally, The Netherlands offers importation incentives that defray the cost of value-added taxes. Janssen's experience, extensive regional resources, and negotiated shipping rates make it a particularly good fit for SP Express. Order Management will take place in the United States via hard-linked software integration, providing sellers with real-time access to inventory and fulfillment data.

"Janssen's Class A facilities and top tier capabilities make them a great partner for us," says Crowder, "as we continue to aggressively build world-class solutions for our growth-oriented clients."
