H.Essers is a premium logistics provider that offers customised and integrated transportation and logistics solutions across Europe. The company was founded in 1928 by Henri Essers and has since become one of the leading companies in Europe within major transport and logistics sectors such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, healthcare and high-quality products. For the past years the company has experienced a solid expansion, driven by organic growth and a number of strategic acquisitions. In 2014, H.Essers reported a turnover of € 440 million.
With 925,000 m² of warehouse space, a fleet of 1,250 trucks and 2,700 trailers, H.Essers is one of the largest and most successful logistics providers in Europe. The company has over 4.181 employees across 39 offices in 11 countries in Western and Eastern Europe. Along with their headquarters in Genk (Belgium), H.Essers also has a strong presence in Romania.
Logistics service provider H.Essers is the first logistics company in Belgium to attain certification for the ISO 39001 standard for traffic safety and the second organisation in Belgium, next to the BIVV (Belgian Institute for Traffic Safety). The certification is the culmination of the sustained commitment to road safety that H.Essers has demonstrated in all its activities over the years. Flemish Minister of Mobility Ben Weyts is very enthusiastic about the efforts of H.Essers as he states that ‘companies are necessary partners when it comes to more traffic safety’.
As a logistics service provider, we are an extension of the chemical-industry supply chain and as a result we wish to meet the quality and safety standards imposed by the industry. We were therefore delighted to attain SQAS certification on 24 and 25 February 2015 with an excellent score of 90 out of 100.
