Astrium Services, the global innovative provider of satellite enabled telecom solutions, has opened a new logistics center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Alongside existing logistics facilities in Houston and Singapore and specialized regional warehouses, like the maritime VSAT warehouse in Stavanger, the new center will play an important part in streamlining the global distribution of VSAT and MSS equipment, to ensure faster delivery times for customers anywhere in the world.

The new facility in Rotterdam supports Astrium Services logistics organization in meeting current industry requirements whilst preparing for the continuing strong expansion of the maritime and offshore VSAT business. It will hold responsibility for delivery of all hardware components for Astrium Services' satcoms portfolio, including antennas, modems and spare parts, in addition to bundled solutions containing VSAT and MSS systems.

“Growth in the VSAT market and a shift from long-term planning to time dependant deliveries are key drivers behind Astrium Services investment in the new logistics center,” commented Tore Morten Olsen, Head of Maritime, Astrium Services. “Today, and even more so in the future, the market demands almost immediate delivery of satcoms systems around the globe, which is driven by changing conditions in the market. Vessels have to operate as efficiently as possible so port stays are shorter, meaning that service suppliers have to be capable of delivering on tight schedules to any port on the planet.”

The new logistics center gives Astrium Services the ability to meet increasingly time and location sensitive delivery requirements from its European partners and customers.

The new Astrium Services logistics facility provides large warehouse space, modern offices, an expanded sales function and is equipped for the vital test, demo and assembly function, which supports the high quality and reliability of all Astrium Services provided satcoms services and products.

A new central order office is incorporated in the new facility, with responsibility for coordination and administration within the global distribution of VSAT and MSS equipment, to cater for Astrium Services customers in Europe and worldwide.
