AMSTERDAM/SHENZHEN
- Media OutReach - 10 October
2019 - ViaEurope, a leading European cross border e-company continues
to expand. The e-logistics tech start-up has just announced the
opening of its new e-Hub in Liège (LGG/Belgium). This new platform is
the second of its kind for the firm whose headquarters are located in
Amsterdam (AMS/Netherlands). Liege new e-Hub is 100%
dedicated to cross border e-commerce, just like at Amsterdam Schiphol
where ViaEurope's first e-Hub disrupted the logistics industry using big data
and the latest available technology for Customs clearance and parcel handling.

ViaEurope e-Commerce gateway to Europe

Bert Selis, Cargo & Logistics Manager at Liege Airport

BJ Streefland, CEO at ViaEurope

"Cross border e-commerce
is growing rapidly, with millions of parcels entering the EU from China
and the United States every day. To create, from this
tsunami of parcels, a seamless cross border experience for the consumer,
technology will be key. Operating smart e-HUBs will be even more
crucial in the e-commerce logistics supply chain considering the up-coming
EU regulation whereby the VAT thresholds (de minimis) will be removed and each
B2C parcel will have to be Customs cleared"
 explains
BJ Streefland, ViaEurope CEO.

Cargo &
Logistics Manager  at Liege Airport, Bert Selis says: "Liège
Airport offers a great environment for an innovative company such as
ViaEurope. Their decision to land here comes with the recognition that our
airport is highly favorable to a fast-growing e-commerce sector
."

With
the opening of a second dedicated e-commerce hub focused on
transparency and speed, ViaEurope executive team takes a strategic step to
ensure they stay ahead of their own customers'
expectations, offering both seamless operations and frictionless
services. ViaEurope intends to create and maximize synergies between
the two e-Hubs in order to ease the flow for both B2C and B2B2C parcels. "Liege plays
a key role in this strategy. Just like AMS, LGG managed
to create a very e-commerce friendly climate. With BeGate,
similar to the VENUE in The Netherlands (which stands for simplified
declaration eCommerce), B2C parcels can be pre-cleared in bulk ensuring flowless processing.
Also, the favorable fiscal climate make of the two
hubs a great entry point for parcels coming from China and the
US
" explains BJ Streefland.

Alternative to the
upcoming Brexit  


Having two
e-hubs at e-commerce friendly airports makes of ViaEurope
a unique partner for any international e-commerce player looking for
the perfect gateway to Europe. "Especially in a hard Brexit scenario
where the UK will be out of the European Customs Union" 
underlines the
CEO. "Trying to get e-commerce freight through our borders will then become
a massive administrative nightmare for whoever is using London as a hub today"
 he
concludes.
