Shiner, the U.K.-based distributor and licensee specializing in skateboards and other action sports equipment, has opened a subsidiary with a 2,300-square-meter logistic facility in Rotterdam, Shiner EU. The company cites a combination of “ambitious expansion plans” on the continent and the impact of Brexit on trading with the European Union as a reason for the move. It will enable quicker and more efficient distribution throughout Europe, says Shiner. Other British companies have set up a logistic hub in the Netherlands, generally in the shape of a bonded warehouse, to deal with the problems caused by the U.K.’s exit from the EU. However, an executive of the U.K.’s Federation of Sports and Play Industry Association (FSPA) has indicated to us that there may be some “pitfalls” in such arrangements.
