H.Essers honoured with double award: M&A Award 2018 and Transport Company of the Year

Yesterday our company was honoured both nationally and internationally with multiple awards. “It is great to see that our strategic investments in sustainable solutions for our customers are being noticed,” said CEO Gert Bervoets.

Yesterday evening in Belgium, Hilde Essers and Gert Bervoets received the prize for the Best M&A Deal Mid Capital at the first edition of the M&A Awards.  This prize is awarded to the nicest and most talked-about M&A deals. We won this award for our acquisition of tank container specialist Huktra. “The jury led by Urbain Vandeurzen (former CEO of LMS & honorary chairman of the Flanders Chamber of Commerce and Industry) praised the fact that the acquisition was more than just a takeover of one family business by another family business. The jury sees  a strong fit and a logical step in the long-term strategy of H.Essers. Beautiful words and a special recognition of our strategic efforts and of our team.”

And the fact that the path we are following is bearing fruit can also be seen internationally. In Romania, we won no less than four awards during the presentation by the organisation Ziua Cargo: in addition to awards for ICT, Management and Popularity, that for Transport Company of the Year is a real boost. This confirms more than ever that H.Essers has become a full-fledged player in Eastern Europe. Fir the first time, a foreign logistics service provider receives this price in Romania. Gert Bervoets: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our teams at home and abroad for their dedication and commitment, and our customers for their trust.”
