Rik Pek, ceo of Broekman Logistics, emphasised the strategic importance of this new branch, which opened its doors during May: “It aligns with our strategy to enhance our presence in growth regions of our key industries: machinery, industrial and chemical markets. Next to this, Türkiye plays a pivotal role in the Indian-European trade lane, one of Broekman Logistics’ unique propositions. We open a new office in Turkey because of the request of one of our larger customers to have our own presence there.”

In February this year, CLdN acquired Broekman Distriport Real Estate and its subsidiary Broekman Distriport in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as Broekman Logistics fine-tuned its focus on project cargo services.

Broekman said that the transaction was the next step in realising its strategy to focus on being an end-to-end supply chain specialist within three market segments: machinery, industrial and chemicals. Distriport, as a multipurpose terminal that in addition to ro-ro trailers also handles steel and containers, does not align with that strategy.
