Danish VDR and IoT specialist opens new Distribution Center in Houston
New facility helps Danelec Marine get closer to customers and reduce its carbon footprint
Danelec Marine, the leading Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) manufacturer and maritime Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure provider has strengthened its global distribution network with the opening of a new Distribution Center in Houston, Texas.
The facility has been established as part of Danelec’s strategy to optimize its global infrastructure, work closer to customers and reduce environmental impact, especially in the context of UN Sustainable Development Goal 13 – Climate Action.
The new Distribution Center stocks complete VDR and S-VDR systems, conversion kits, VDR-related optional equipment, as well as Vessel Remote Servers and all other components necessary for DanelecConnect Maritime IoT Infrastructure installations.
Houston was chosen for its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and its ability to improve delivery lead-times for customers in North America and beyond. The facility is managed by Danelec’s long-term partner, Geodis, which has been responsible for the company’s Distribution Center in Denmark for more than six years.
“We’re pleased to be part of Danelec’s expansion in the US and confident that the new facility will provide significant advantage to partners and end-customers in both North America and surrounding countries,” said Kent Husted, Managing Director, GEODIS.
Ensuring an effective global supply chain with lower overall cost of ownership of its products, Danelec now offers delivery from its Distribution Centers in Copenhagen Denmark, Bangkok Thailand and Houston USA.
“It’s been a pleasure working with the Geodis team to establish the Distribution Center and I look forward to the logistical improvements it will bring to our partners,” said Dorthe Nonboe Christensen, Supply Chain Director, Danelec.
Danelec’s new Distribution Center is operational now, with orders already being shipped from Houston to customers throughout the Americas.
