“At our campus in the Dutch city of Emmen we offer Logistics Management and International Logistics Management. Both are unique in the Netherlands because of their focus on sustainable logistics.

NHL Stenden University - Logistics Management and Oldenburger|Fritom have been working together in a very pleasant and valuable way for many years now.

His extensive operational experience ensures that these courses continue to meet the recruitments of the professional field.”

The newly built warehouse of Oldenburger|Fritom in 2019 brought the cooperation with NHL Stenden University to a new dimension. The BREEAM certified warehouse is an excellent example of a shared common vision of the importance of sustainability for the logistic industry.
