Neele-Vat continues to expand with the acquisition of Otentic Logistics and Otentic Customs in Oosterhout.
With this acquisition, Neele-Vat strengthens its position in storage and transhipment, VAL activities, customs activities and forwarding throughout Europe.
Otentic is a healthy company and active in the storage and transshipment of raw materials for the food industry and the storage of dangerous goods. They also have excellent knowledge of customs activities, fiscal representation and VAT legislation. The two companies will join forces, enabling them to offer an even better and broader service with more than 1,200 employees and 32 branches in 10 countries.
Neele-Vat offers a good European transport network, a strong position in the field of air and sea freight, more than 500,000 m2 of storage capacity within the Benelux and opportunities for value added logistics.
Cuno Vat, CEO Neele-Vat, is very proud of the acquisition of this wonderful company.
“The activities of Neele-Vat and Otentic complement each other well. We can now offer our customers an even broader service. And with the new location near our branches in Hazeldonk en Meer (BE) we have a good starting position to expand our services internationally. So that we can fulfill our ambitions to grow as a family business and to remain competitive.”
The Otentic companies will continue to operate independently within Neele-Vat for the time being.
Chris Doodewaard and Jack Zagers, directors of Otentic: “The acquisition by Neele-Vat offers a nice continuation for customers and staff of Otentic. With the same customer-oriented, no-nonsense culture, and even more clout. We are pleased that we can offer our customers and colleagues a bright future.”
