Local Initiatives

JF Hillebrand Benelux is in a constant dialogue with our customers to improve service and efficiency.  Some of our initiatives include:

  • Conscious about the environment, Import containers are being used for export as much as possible, saving costs and working to be more sustainable. With an adjusted loading plan, more and more export containers can be moved by barge which results in a lower CO2 emission per container.

  • We have EDI-connections established saving time and paper compared to transmission by fax or email (of which prints are being made). And we encourage the use of electronic invoicing where possible.

  • Regular meetings are being held with shipping lines to avoid waiting times at terminal gates and depots for delivery of laden containers or pick-up of empty containers.
