Managing the customs processes in Europe is a key element.

Our value proposition to the F-35 program provides certain customs solutions that ensure a smooth and undisturbed goods flow.

Due to the differences among European countries from a customs point of view, the choice of location of OneLogistics is crucial. When assessing the culture regarding trade and logistics, the customs culture and philosophy, and the daily operation of customs procedures, the obvious choice is the Netherlands. The Netherlands has been and is the main driver within the EU for aligning customs supervision and controls with the supply chain. The principle here is to provide as little interference as possible while maintaining ef cient and optimized customs supervision. The fact that Dutch Customs can and is willing to facilitate and enable the F-35 logistic process is a very special feature of European logistics.
