BroekmanWillem Jan van Amersfoort (pictured) has been appointed managing director of warehousing and distribution at Broekman Logistics.

After joining the Rotterdam-headquartered company earlier this year, van Amersfoort was already operationally responsible for all warehouse locations, but following the departure of Jacques Klein Kramer, he has now taken on commercial responsibility for the business unit.

Broekman Logistics was established over 55 years ago at the Port of Rotterdam, and over time has become a full-service logistics services company employing about 800 people in offices located in the Netherlands, China, India, Singapore, Belgium, Poland and the Czech Republic.

The company specialises in forwarding and shipping, warehousing and distribution and break-bulk terminals.

Commenting on the appointment, van Amersfoort said: “With my logistics knowledge and experience, I’m looking forward to boosting the further optimisation of our operational processes and the expansion of our customer portfolio. Growth, ambition and the personal touch are important priorities in this for me.”
