Some countries, often centrally located and closer to the main population areas in Europe, have made it their business to attract foreign importers and distributors to set up in their territory, and have developed legal and regulatory systems to simplify importing and distribution.

In addition, there are private sector companies also encouraging this trend, by providing comprehensive assistance with customs clearance, warehousing, picking and packing, invoicing and customer support.

Countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands have set themselves up to help companies located there in the process of importing and distributing goods into the Single Market. Starting with their existing advantages, such as seaports, airports and a central location, they have deliberately added advantages like logistics hubs, legal, accounting and employment advisory services, government services and available labour pools.


They are know technically as Business Services Value Chains (BSVCs), because they provide value added to the products imported and distributed through these chains. They can be key factors in choosing a business location if import and distribution are major parts of your business.

They are aimed at simplifying and facilitating goods imports and taxation.
