Broekman starts logistics ops for Liebherr, pair eyes expansion
Earlier this year, Liebher Group, an intra-group logistics service provider partnered up with the Rotterdam-based Broekman Logistics on a first new location in the Netherlands. Now a few months later, Broekman Logistics has started the full logistics operations for Liebherr in Born.
Liebherr searched for a logistics partner due to space constraints at its location in Oberopfingen, Germany. After an intensive tender process, Liebherr ultimately chose Broekman Logistics.
Rik Pek, CEO of Broekman Logistics, said, “After an intensive tender process, we were chosen by Liebherr as their logistics partner for the European market. Liebherr recognises us as the expert in transport, storage, and assembly of machines and spare parts. This validates our new strategic approach, wherein Broekman Logistics focuses even more specifically on logistics services in the market segments of machinery, industry, and chemicals.”
Broekman Logistics is responsible for managing Liebherr’s machine parts and components, which include hydraulic excavators, crawler cranes, and telescopic handlers. Broekman Logistics supplies spare parts for these machines to the European market. They transport and store around 45,000 different parts for these machines. Approximately 130,000 outbound orders for these parts are expected to be processed every year.
According to Broekman, the two companies are conducting research to explore a potential expansion of services into other divisions and partnerships with the Indian market, aligning with Broekman Logistics’ recent strategy refinement. Additionally, Liebherr anticipates significant annual growth, resulting in an increase in tasks for Broekman Logistics.
