Broekman Logistics Globe Looking Beyond Earth

60 years of partnerships

Our Story

We started in 1960 as shipping agent in the Port of Rotterdam. Something we still are today – but, these days we are a lot more. Since our formation we have grown into an end-to-end supply chain solution provider, with offices in the Benelux, Central Europe and India.

Since the beginning in 1960, we have been a family owned company. The values and commitment of the founding family Geuther is the base of our long-term partnerships. We cherish these relations and continuously reinvent ourselves to serve the future needs of our clients in their highly specialised markets.

With an annual turnover of around 250 million EUR and 1,000 employees, Broekman Logistics is an all-round logistics service provider. In the Netherlands we are a top 20 logistics player and one of the few independent logistics services providers with strong focus on our core industries. With a strong asset-base in terminals and warehousing we serve our clients’ needs in contract- and port logistics.

We are present in the major economic growth hubs of the world. With our 18 own offices in India and are a specialist in this region and with our 16 locations in Central-Europe and Northwestern Europe, we offer our partners a personal touch, while truly understanding local market requirements.

Looking Beyond, Together

Our Culture

Our most important assets are neither our terminal nor our warehouses. They are our people. They look beyond the ordinary, forging a bond that make us a true global supply chain partner. Our colleagues take pride in delivering on the promises you make to your end-users with an entrepreneurial spirit and a personal touch.

We stimulate our people to think outside the box. Moreover, to ‘think inside the box’, as we call it. Inside the box – whether it is a container or a warehouse – is where the true value of our customer lies. Our people handle these goods with care and think along with our partners’ needs.

Where it all started

Our History

Looking beyond logistics, our culture, is deeply rooted in our history of and carries the typical Rotterdam’s entrepreneurial mentality, while blending it with the experience of our global reach and personal touch.

On October 27th in the year 1960, Mr. Aad Broekman registered Broekman Motorships N.V. in the Rotterdam chamber of commerce. As an independent shipping agent, Broekman Logistics specialised in shipping breakbulk cargo and cars. On January 17th 1961,  the Wasaborg sails into the Nieuwe Waterweg, carrying 250 tons of conventional cargo and eighteen cars, marking our first success story.

The story continues: with an entrepreneurial mindset, we started to grow internationally. We always have been looking beyond. We saw the opportunities to add value to our partners’ supply chains and invested in terminals, where we modified our partners’ goods. From here, we moved into even more complex supply chains and started warehouse operations in the Machinery, Industrial and Chemical segments, while remaining loyal to our entrepreneurial spirit, which formed Broekman Logistics in its early days.
