Logistics service provider H.Essers provides personalised and integrated transport and logistics solutions across Europe.
The company was founded by Henri Essers in 1928 and has since become one of the leading companies in Europe in the field of transport and logistics for such sectors as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, healthcare and high-quality goods. The company has experienced solid expansion in the last decade, driven by autonomous growth and a number of strategic acquisitions. In 2016, H.Essers reported a turnover of 590 million euros.
The company currently has 950,000 m² of warehouse space, a fleet of 1,460 lorries and 3,050 trailers. The company has over 5,400 employees across 67 branches in 15 countries in Western and Eastern Europe.
Along with its headquarters in Genk (Belgium), H.Essers also has a strong presence in Romania.
The strength of the company lies in its asset-based strategy: it is the owner of the transport fleet, warehouses and IT systems. This allows it to maintain optimum control over all strategic processes. The familial character of the company ensures that the lines of decision-making are kept short. This enables H.Essers to respond quickly to the changing demands of its clients and shifts in the international market.
H.Essers views its clients as partners. Therefore we always strive for a lasting, solid relationship and continue to seek improvement and optimisation. This applied end-to-end approach aims to ensure streamlined processes that are continuously analysed, evaluated and optimised.
H.Essers’ philosophy is driven by our team of motivated staff throughout the organisation who consider client engagement of key importance. The result is that H.Essers is a reliable and honourable partner for all your logistics activities. The proof of this can be found in the numerous long-term relationships we have built up with our current partners.
