GeigerBTC Opens Distribution Centre in RotterdamFollowing recent global contract wins, GeigerBTC has opened a Distribution Centre and office in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Ideally located for goods arriving from all points of the compass, the DC will act as a hub for deliveries throughout Europe and the Middle East. The office will also serve as a central point for customs clearance.
