Since 1872

We’ve been in business since 1872. Our goal today is the same as it was when we started: to provide our clients with reliable, long-term solutions, complementing each other’s strengths and developing sustainable, solid growth. This ambition remains as strong today as it was when we were founded. Over the last few years, for example, we’ve been awarded a prestigious Gazelle Award five times by the Netherlands’ daily financial newspaper Het Financiele Dagblad. The awards are given to the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands, and they are testament to the spirit and dedication of our people. At the same time, our financial stability has been confirmed by ratings agency Dun & Bradstreet, who gave us the highest rating available (D&B Rating 1), indicating the lowest risk profile.

Supply Chain Management

Effective supply chain management begins with an intimate understanding of your clients’ needs. Only then can you begin the process of managing and coordinating the distribution of goods from point A to point B.

So what makes our supply chain management so special?

  • With a head office and state-of-the-art logistics centers located next to the Port of Rotterdam - Europe’s largest - we have direct access to one of the world’s greatest distribution centers.
  • Our transit centers utilizes some of the most sophisticated warehousing equipment to optimize accuracy and efficiency.
  • Voice-directed warehousing cuts order-picking times, while our compact warehousing system has increased storage capacity by 33%.
  • We provide fully bonded warehousing, as well as multi-temperature storage and onward transportation.
  • Each day our logistics center consolidates a huge array of clients’ goods, dispatching multiple truckloads containing a vast combination of different goods, with individual items, boxes, or trays of goods all shipping in one load.
