On 13 June Broekman Logistics hosted the 2nd IRO member meeting of 2017 in Rotterdam.
Broekman Logistics is a full service logistics organisation specialising in ocean, road, rail, air and multimodal transport. They offer Value Added Logistics and Value Added Services, such as warehousing and distribution, on a worldwide basis. Their aim is to support our customers in every way as a reliable logistics partner.
The first part of the afternoon program started at the Broekman office in Rotterdam harbour.
Our host presented shortly about their core business with a global footprint.
Also, as a fixed part of our membermeetings nowadays, 5 of our new IRO members had the chance to briefly introduce themselves to the whole audience:
Auxilium Offshore, OOS International, Prysmian Group, Rhenus Logistics and Ridderflex.
Then all 85 participants were invited to board a ship and visit the Broekman terminal.
Very impressive, hard to explain the sizes and weights of the warehouses, cranes and cargo.
It was clear that quite a few IRO members and oil & gas operators are making good use of these facilities.
After this mindboggling experience we sailed around the Rotterdam harbour for informal networking and enjoying the view and weather.
Many thanks to Broekman Logistics for the perfect organization!
