Environment Charter (June 2018)

Last year Hamann International Logistics nv obtained the Environment charter for the 9th time.

We also received the confirmation of our letter of intent to take part in the VOKA Sustainable Entrepreneurship Charter 2017, where we were required to take at least 10 actions around the 17 sustainability objectives of the United Nations with at least 1 action within each of the 5 P's: People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace and Partnership.

One year later we are proud to announce that Hamann International Logistics nv has been awarded the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Charter.  This based on the sustainability policy and the actions that have been executed during the year 2017.  Hamann focused on objective 9: industry, innovation and infrastructure.  The renewal of our fleet by new trucks with a positive impact on the environment and safety was the case we developed.

Only 41 companies from East-Flanders received this charter.  A reason to be proud and to share this with our customers, suppliers & partners.

Belgium: Road works on the ring of Antwerp (R1) (March 2018)

There is a road subsidence on the ring of Antwerp (R1), near Deurne. To avoid further damage and to guarantee the safety of the road users, repairs are needed. The reinforced concrete of the three right-hand lanes will be fully renewed over a length of 15 meters. The road works will last for 6 days and 7 nights, they will be performed during the second week of the Easter holiday. In the weeks preceding the repairs they will already conduct a few preparations during the night. Heavy traffic trouble is expected.

The road works will start Monday evening the 9th of April and will be finished during the night from Sunday 15th on Monday the 16th of April. In the direction of the Netherlands there will be 4 lanes unavailable, three to conduct the works and one for safety.

  • The traffic in the direction of the Netherlands will get two additional lanes on the inner ring via a passage through the central median strip. The traffic on the ring in the direction towards the Netherlands has four lanes available, one of which is reserved for traffic coming from the E313. The traffic in the direction of Ghent will have three lanes.
  • The exit and the ramp at Deurne will be closed during the road works. Traffic must detour via the exit and the ramp of Merksem.

The connections from and to the E313 will remain open. However, the connection of the E313 on the ring will be brought to one lane.

Due to these drastic works, there may be delays on national and international transports.

GM Supplier of the Year Awards (April 2017)


Hamann International Logistics from Wetteren, Belgium was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 25th annual Supplier of the Year Awards ceremony held Friday 31st March in Orlando, Florida.

   

GM counts 20.000 suppliers and recognized 118 of their best suppliers in different fields from 15 countries as Supplier of the Year.

The Awards were given to companies that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, that created outstanding value or brought new innovations to the company. According to Steve Kiefer, GM Vice President Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, the companies that were recognized not only have brought innovation, but they delivered it with the quality that GM-customers deserve and require.

Hamann was elected in the category “Logistics” together with nine other winning companies coming from the United States, Far East and Europe.
Managing director Wim Libaers and Project & Accountmanager Johan Galle received the trophy from Todd J. Scott, Executive Director Global Supply Chain and from James Bovenzi, Executive Director Demand Supply.

For Hamann this Award is a reward for over 25 years of cooperation with the GM plants in Europe, for Opel as well as for Vauxhall and Chevrolet. Hamann has been appointed as the exclusive logistics partner for Belgium and the Netherlands for the collection and delivery of all production parts into the plants in Germany and Austria as well as Opel Antwerp, till that plant closed down in 2010. Overmore Hamann delivers all spare parts from the central warehouses in Germany towards the regional distribution centres in Belgium, Holland, France, United Kingdom and Scandinavia. All collections and deliveries are made after close consultation with the customer, with whom we developed personalized systems for order entry order status follow up, just-in-time collection and delivery, documentation and invoicing. All existing contracts were recently extended until 2020. Our total turnover with GM is around 9 million euro, which makes them one of our largest customers.

 The recent acquisition of Opel and Vauxhall by PSA will stop the future cooperation with General Motors. However the contacts with the European plants and the decision makers are excellent and Hamann is therefore convinced that they can look forward full of confidence to a succesful relationship with the new strong group.
