Venlo - a city of enterprise

Venlo is the most important link between the Randstad region in the West of the Netherlands and the Central European hinterland. By taking full advantage of its favourable location, Venlo has grown into the third-largest logistics hotspot of the Netherlands, after Rotterdam and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. And as well as logistics, Venlo’s strengths also include agrofood, knowledge‑intensive and manufacturing industry and retail.
The city’s strong urban economy is built on four key pillars:

  • Big enough to offer all the required city facilities.
  • But it’s also a city on a human scale.
  • A green city in a green environment.
  • A perfect place to live, to work, to study and to do business.
