Takeover in Belgium
Ahlers Belgium has acquired Antwerp Breakbulk Agencies (ABA). ABA’s contracts with Onego, Hartel and Nepa shipping and chartering lines are now being fully operated through Ahlers. The takeover, which was finalised at the end of 2015, extends Ahlers’ customer offering by adding more lines and destinations to its agency portfolio.
Hans van der Woude, former owner of ABA, has joined the Ahlers team as business development manager. Ahlers provides commercial agency services in multiple ports and also - if needed - transport to and from ports, local port services, customs handling, warehousing and logistics.
