JF Hillebrand and its subsidiaries, Trans Ocean Bulk Logistics and Satellite Logistics Group (SLG), are to rebrand as Hillebrand.
Cees van Gent, chairman and chief executive, said “Our mission is to deliver liquids and, adjacent to that, other sensitive products in a reliable way, with ultimate care, in the shortest possible transit times and always with a personable and friendly service.”
JF Hillebrand provides forwarding, transport and logistics for cased and bulk alcoholic beverages; Trans Ocean – which it acquired in 2007 – offers non-hazardous bulk liquid transportation and SLG – acquired in 2013 – specialises in reverse logistics for brewers.
In June JF Hillebrand acquired German transport operator 3W Logistik.
Hillebrand celebrates its 175th anniversary this year, and counts Tesco, Sierra Nevada, Cargill, Diageo, AB-InBev and Emirates among its customer base. It ships over 600,000 TEUs annually.
