Are you looking for a strategic location for safe transhipment and storage of your heavy machinery? By choosing Broekman Logistics as a partner for flexible industrial warehousing and project logistics, manufacturers of heavy machinery can grow their business without having to invest in the construction of new storage facilities or expansion of their production space.
The Broekman Heavy Lift Terminal offers 16,000 m2 of covered storage space and 26,000 m2 of open storage space. This area can be used, for instance, to (temporarily) store machines already sold and prepare them for shipment. Our overhead cranes have a maximum lifting capacity of 700 tonnes, and can lift just about anything. Handling out of gauge, break bulk and project cargo has been our speciality for more than 50 years, and heavy machinery – such as entire factory lines, mining machinery, printing presses and machines for the automotive industry and for processing and packaging food products – is no exception to that rule.
FAVOURABLE LOCATION FOR INDUSTRIAL STORAGE
The strategic location of the Broekman Heavy Lift Terminal in the Waalhaven in Rotterdam makes it possible to ship large components or complete machines by truck or barge from sites in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Heavy lift and break bulk vessels with a draught of up to 10.5 meters can also berth at our quay 24/7. Broekman Logistics has a worldwide network enabling us to take care of the entire logistics process for you, from project forwarding to customs clearance.
ASSEMBLING AND PACKAGING OF INDUSTRIAL PROJECT CARGO
In addition to industrial warehousing we offer services such as the assembly and packaging of your heavy machinery. By opting for assembly and preparation for shipment in Rotterdam you can save significantly on the cost of special transport to a seaport. Moreover, Broekman can help you with the final assembly so that your industrial machines can be dispatched as a whole. This will save you installation and commissioning time upon arrival.
YOUR PRECIOUS CARGO IN GOOD HANDS
Our dedicated terminal was completely renovated in 2015 and has been equipped with the latest technology and facilities for safe handling and storage of your valuable machines. Broekman holds all the necessary permits and meets the ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 standards.
