What do you do in the unfortunate event that cargo is not allowed into the country but also cannot be returned to the owner? The costs mount with each day that the container spends at the terminal. Furthermore, the equipment cannot be used in the supply chain.
Broekman Logistics and Van Scherpenzeel together offer you a valuable solution. Instead of a costly one-way trip to the incinerator, we provide confidential destruction whilst recovering as much raw materials as possible. And of course, we will also arrange all the logistics. Your ‘problem’ is expertly solved: fast, optimally sustainable and at considerably lower costs!
The collaboration between Broekman Logistics and Van Scherpenzeel guarantees you a fully closed chain. Goods will not reach the market through a back door.
How it works
You report your problem container to Broekman Logistics, describing the content as accurately as possible;
Within 24 hours, we will respond and offer you an indication of the costs after the cargo has been processed into reusable raw materials;
Following your approval, Broekman Logistics will arrange the entire logistics process for you. Separate agreements are in place with Customs for the secure transport of your problem container from the terminal to the processing facilities of Van Scherpenzeel;
Van Scherpenzeel unloads the container; in many cases, it is often returned to your supply chain the very same day;
The contents of the container are next confidentially destroyed, with recovery of raw materials as much as possible;
Lastly, you will receive a final invoice with a detailed breakdown of the recycled raw materials and ‘your yield’!
From waste to raw materials
Each product has value. For example:
