Broekman Logistics is updating its strategy to focus on freight forwarding and asset-based value-added logistics services for the industrial equipment and breakbulk sectors, specialty and packed chemicals, agriculture, along with construction machinery and spare parts.
The company has started building a 60,000 sq m site in Weert, where end-assembly and manufacturing work will be performed for its clients. The warehouse activity for bulk chemicals in Antwerp – operated under VLS Group – is no longer part of the core business, said Broekman Logistics, as it will focus on specialty chemicals. These activities have been sold to Van Moer Logistics, based in Zwijndrecht, Belgium.
Broekman Logistics will also continue to expand its freight forwarding operations in India, Poland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Belgium. Its breakbulk terminals in Rotterdam will continue to serve long-term clients in shortsea shipping, metals and the power and renewable energy industry.
The company added that it will also remain focused on sustainability and the further digitalisation of its processes. With this strategy, Broekman Logistics aims to strengthen its position as a leader in the European and Indian markets.
