Van Moer Logistics has completed the acquisition of Broekman Logistics Belgium Antwerp (BLBA), the former VLS group activities. BLBA offers integrated logistics solutions for the chemical bulk industry, such as filling of liquids from tankers to drums and IBCs and repackaging of solids (powders and granulates).
BLBA has four seveso locations on the right bank with a total of 106,000m² of combined storage space for hazardous and non-hazardous goods with a storage capacity for 680 full ISO tank containers. BLBA employs 130 people and achieved an annual turnover of €33 million in 2021.
The acquisition fits in the strategy of Van Moer Logistics to further expand and refine its offer for the chemical sector.
Jo Van Moer, Founder & CEO, Van Moer Logistics: "The circle in our one stop shop story is now complete for both left and right bank. With the take-over of Group Van Loon earlier this year, we already allocated depot, cleaning and repair activities on the right bank. Thanks to the addition of BLBA we now also manage an additional filling line and extra storage capacity for both dangerous and non-dangerous goods."
One stop shop
With the acquisition of BLBA, Van Moer Logistics completes its one stop shop service on both the Antwerp left and right bank. Besides the extensive storage capacity, the logistics service provider can now offer the entire supply chain for tank containers on both banks. Transport, storage (full and empty), heating, filling, cleaning, checking and repair of tank containers can now be provided in-house and on both banks.
This unique vertical integration also provides a further optimization of the internal processes at Van Moer Logistics. All current flows will be analysed and adjusted where possible. In this way, the service provider will also actively fight useless kilometres and tunnel costs, and thus also achieve a large environmental profit.
