About Raben Netherlands
As a member of the Raben Group, which operates in 15 European countries, Raben Netherlands serves as a logistics service provider covering the entire Benelux region. From its four locations in the Netherlands, Raben manages national and international pallet shipments, along with offering a wide range of services in contract logistics for its clients.

These operations are conducted from its facilities in Oss and Etten-Leur. In 2024, Raben Netherlands inaugurated its latest warehouse, a 13,500 square meter Zero Emission Building, strategically positioned in Oss at the heart of the Benelux, providing excellent access to the hinterland.

Partnership between Raben and PowerGo

Our collaboration started after PowerGo recognized the necessity of maintaining its own inventory with hardware related products from different suppliers. This decision gave us the flexibility to promptly supply hardware for our EV charging sites, while eliminating dependence on supplier lead times. Raben was able to accurately assess our needs, enabling swift action in terms of contracts and agreements. This in combination with the geographical location — a central and accessible site in the Netherlands near our suppliers and primary installers — led us to choose Raben.

PowerGo sought a robust local partner in the Benelux region capable of offering comprehensive supply chain services encompassing both warehousing and transportation. Raben was identified as capable of meeting this need, given its ability to accommodate the anticipated growth in volumes. Furthermore, PowerGo required a flexible partner capable of delivering a range of activities related to their products. Raben's team provides these various Value Added Services on a daily basis, further enhancing the partnership.

Future plans for partnership

Moving forward, our goal is to expand our stock storage capacity and explore the option of ­­implementing value-added services (VAS). This may involve on-site troubleshooting, addressing possible damages, or tasks such as applying stickers. Furthermore, we aim to investigate the feasibility of storing battery systems, subject to compliance with laws and regulations set up by the Dutch government.
