More than 100 years’ expertise. 1600+ People. 220,000 m2 Warehouse. Storage capacity of 250,000 pallet places. 450+ Trucks. 7 Hubs. Summarised in 1 ambition: Food availability. Because that’s what it’s all about for us: the continuous availability of food. In other words, well-stocked shelves. Today, tomorrow and the day after.
At Bakker Logistiek, besides fulfilling our vital function, we also accept our social responsibility. So besides delivering quality, sustainability and safety are also important themes. Because by focusing on both people and the planet, at the end of the journey, together we make a difference for the generations of tomorrow. In other words, CSR is woven into our DNA.
We strive to create a service-oriented culture aimed at making a real impact, pallet by pallet and kilometre after kilometre. For the client, the consumer, colleagues and the world we live in. Despite our size, we have still managed to maintain the character of a family business, with short lines and an informal communication style. That gives professional collaboration with (and for) Bakker Logistiek a personal feel.
As a logistics service provider, we are aware that we are a crucial link in the chain and that we make a significant contribution to what you promise the end user / consumer. In other words: our business is a means, not an end. The core of our work is flexibly serving and totally supporting our clients. If you visit one of our 7 hubs or talk to one of our 1,600 employees, you will therefore always find that offering service, ideas and solutions is key to what we do.
Over 100 years ago, Egbert Bakker started the business that is now Bakker Logistiek. With a tow barge, the Bakker family, headed by Egbert Bakker, transported turf, soap, beer and maize on the inland waterways of the Netherlands. The tow barge was followed by two small market boats for inland navigation: the Geertruida Elizabeth 1 and the Geertruida Elizabeth 2.
