As a global supply chain solutions provider, Broekman Logistics is part of the logistics industry which plays an important role in making the world more accessible, smaller and closely connected. We have a responsibility towards the environment when it comes to preserving and taking care of our people and planet, whilst maintaining good business results.
Our focus on digitisation and corporate social responsibility becomes truly tangible. Providing transparency in all our efforts with the launch of our second CSR report in a row, enables us to take some significant steps in providing sustainable solutions to our key stakeholders. By offering multimodal transport alternatives, we allow our clients to make their supply chain more efficient and our partnerships more sustainable.
We want our customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders to know who they are in business with when they cooperate and collaborate with us. That is why, like in 2018, we have assessed all activities that took place in 2019, in the Netherlands and now included the activities in our Belgian warehouses, according to the internationally renowed Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard Reference Indicators.
In 2019, we have relocated our Nijmegen warehouse to our state-of-the-art warehouse in Venlo, doubling our warehouse facilities and hereby decreasing the local CO2 footprint with 63% per square metre. A significant achievement for which we thank all our colleagues who worked on this effort!
