Broekman Logistics opens new branch in Türkiye

Broekman Logistics has announced the opening of its new branch in Istanbul, Türkiye.

This expansion marks the first new country office since the company unveiled its new strategy at the end of 2023, demonstrating Broekman Logistics' commitment to strategic global growth and improved logistics and supply chain solutions.

"This new office brings us closer to our customers in Türkiye. This branch will enable us to deliver top-tier logistics services and solutions customised to the regional market's needs," explained Martijn Tasma, director of International Freight Forwarding & Shipping.

The inauguration ceremony, held on 16 May, was officiated by Rik Pek, CEO of Broekman Logistics, and Martijn Tasma, Director of International Freight Forwarding & Shipping. The event was attended by consul-generals from the Netherlands, Türkiye, and India, as well as key industry figures, partners, and stakeholders, all celebrating this significant milestone.

"The opening of our Istanbul office is a significant milestone for Broekman Logistics. It aligns with our strategy to enhance our presence in growth regions of our key industries: machinery, industrial and chemical markets. Next to this, Türkiye plays a pivotal role in the Indian-European tradelane, one of Broekman Logistics’ unique propositions. We open a new office in Turkey because of the request of one of our larger customers to have our own presence there," stated Rik Pek, CEO of Broekman Logistics, emphasizing the strategic importance of this new branch.

In addition, establishing a presence in Türkiye will serve as a catalyst for improved logistics efficiencies and increased market connectivity across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, according to the company's statement.

“We are excited about the opportunities this new branch will bring and are confident it will significantly contribute to our growth strategy," noted Rik Pek.
