TRUE Sports, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and innovator of high performance sporting goods and equipment in the golf, hockey, lacrosse, and baseball categories.

GEODIS Netherlands will start providing warehousing and distribution services out of their Rotterdam warehouse for the TRUE Hockey brand. TRUE Sports chose the Netherlands for its strategic location with an excellent infrastructure supporting the European rollout. GEODIS implemented a customized racking layout enabling an optimal and efficient storage of the TRUE hockey sticks.
