A city of enterprise
Venlo has a central location between the Randstad region in the West of the Netherlands and the Mid European hinterland. That gives it a highly strategic position. And by exploiting that location to the full, Venlo has grown into the third-largest logistics hotspots in the Netherlands, second only to Rotterdam and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Next to logistics, Venlo’s strengths lie in agrofood, in knowledge-intensive and manufacturing industries and retail. Together, these form the pillars of the city’s strong urban economy.
As well as that, Venlo is a great city to live in. It’s big enough to offer all the required city facilities, but it’s also a city with an accessible scale. Venlo is a green city in a green setting. A great city to live in, to work in, to study in and to do business in. If you think so too, just get in touch with us!
Venlo offers a wide range of educational facilities right up to university level. On the one hand these support the city’s business & industry community, and on the other hand they offer residents an ample choice of educational opportunities.
The employment market in Venlo is very varied. There are people working in services, manufacturing and high-tech industry, transport and logistics, agrofood, healthcare and many other fields.
The Netherlands has a modern tax system for companies. This aims on the one hand to create as few obstacles as possible for business and industry, and on the one hand to prevent companies from having to pay double taxation.
