World Cleanup Day 2020 – The biggest clean-up action in Limburg

On Saturday, September 19th it was World Clean-up Day – a day filled with initiatives to make our world a little cleaner again. In Limburg, 5000 volunteers joined forces to start the Maas Cleanup 2020, an initiative that vidaXL sponsored in the hopes of contributing to a better future.

Clean rivers, better business

The amounts of trash collected in our oceans, rivers, and lakes are a result of our lack of environmental awareness. Most trash that ends up in the waters is caused by improper recycling and littering. At first, it starts with leaving a little trash here and there but over time these bits of trash accumulate to a larger problem our bodies of water are currently facing. Unfortunately, we as humans are the reason this problem is ongoing and is why we need to be the ones who address this concern.

Currently, vidaXL and companies in Limburg have teamed up to contribute to the Maas Clean-up, physically and financially, in a growing movement to increase environmental awareness. Together we can all make a meaningful difference by educating ourselves and playing our part through organizing cleanup actions on land and water.

vidaXL volunteering on Plastic Whale boats

The Plastic Whale boats normally clean the Grachten in Amsterdam, for the Maas Clean-up they came over to support the cause. As a company, we take pride in our employees who volunteered their time and efforts to go trash fishing in the Maasduinen at the Leukermeer. It was a fun afternoon filled with positivity and awareness. The biggest catch encountered for our team was a plastic beachball and a fuel canister.

Venlo – From the next football season vidaXL will officially become a sponsor for Eredivisie club VVV-Venlo. The logo will be visible on the back of the match shirts and throughout the whole stadium. The contract was signed on 24 June by Marc Bogers, CEO of VVV-Venlo, and Linn Hallgren, Marketing Manager for vidaXL. “We’re very proud to be a sponsor for VVV-Venlo. We think it’s amazing to be on the back of the match shirts as a Venlo company”, Linn Hallgren says.

Venlo is not just the city where vidaXL’s headquarters is located, but also the hometown of a lot of vidaXL employees and VVV-Venlo fans. “As a company stationed in Venlo we want to return something to the city of Venlo through this connection with VVV-Venlo”, says Hallgren. vidaXL employs people from 35 different nationalities who all work closely together to achieve a common goal, just like a football team.

By collaborating with VVV-Venlo the company wants to increase their brand awareness to bring that typical vidaXL jackpot feeling to more customers. This feeling is achieved by keeping the prices low, the shopping experience as pleasant as possible and by always having the best deals.

“During conversations with VVV-Venlo we immediately got the right feeling. It’s amazing that the shirts won’t just be seen in the stadium, but also on Studio Sport or FOX Sport, which have a broad viewership, not just in the Netherlands, but also abroad” Hallgren comments.

vidaXL is building an 80.000m² second distribution centre in Venlo (NL)

Because of rapid growth the international online retailer vidaXL will start the construction of a second distribution centre at Trade Port Noord in Venlo. The new distribution centre is expected to be finished in March 2020.

At the end of 2017 vidaXL already opened a new 100.000 m² distribution centre in Venlo. The very ambitious company started a dropshipping programme1) in 2018, which proved to be a great success. Because of this rapid growth – partly caused by dropshippers -, the company is again bursting at the seams, so a new warehouse needs to be built.

The construction of the second distribution centre with a total surface area of 80.000 m² at Trade Port Noord will start in May 2019. The total surface area of both buildings together will then be 180.000 m². The choice for Venlo as a base was again made because of the logistical advantages and the location of the current warehouse.

The construction and arrival of the new building has a positive effect on employment. The first building already has a ‘very good’ BREEAM certificate, and the same goal is pursued for the second building. For the second distribution centre the entire roof will be utilised for solar panels. These panels are expected to be installed and put into use during 2020.

1) Dropshipping is a way of reselling vidaXL products via your own webshop or other channels. The products are shipped directly from the distribution centre from vidaXL, so the seller doesn’t need to have stock.
