Neele-Vat, logistics service provider with headquarters in Rotterdam, took an interest in 2HM Logistics in Slovenia at the end of June. This has significantly expanded Neele-Vat’s country offering. 2HM Logistics is headquartered in Koper (Slovenia) and has satellite offices in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. With this acquisition, Neele-Vat focuses on the rapidly emerging port city of Koper and the countries surrounding Slovenia with the aim of further strengthening the European network on the Adriatic coast and in Eastern Europe. Neele-Vat’s interest in 2HM Logistics offers great opportunities for both customers and 2HM employees. 2HM Logistics will continue to operate independently within Neele-Vat for the time being.
2HM Logistics is an all-round logistics service provider with a wide range of services, such as sea and air freight, road and rail transport, warehousing, but also ISO tank transport, exceptional cargo, and customs activities. The company was founded in 2017 and has a warehouse capacity of 5,000 m2. Under the motto ‘small teams, skilled people’, 2HM Logistics has grown into a healthy organization. The team speaks more than ten European languages, allowing the company to create solutions or solve problems in the language in which the services are offered. 2HM Logistics will be connected to Neele-Vat’s offices in Asia, so that valued customers can be offered an end-to-end solution with everything in their own hands.
Gate to Central Europe
Hans de Zeeuw, Solutions Director at Neele-Vat, is very proud of the partial acquisition of this wonderful company. “2HM Logistics has a young, enthusiastic team, packed with knowledge and experience in this region. Koper and Ljubliana are important locations in Slovenia, which fits very well with Neele-Vat’s growth strategy. We are pleased that the four owners of 2HM will remain, giving Neele-Vat a lot of additional operational knowledge of road, sea, and air freight in this region. We see 2HM as the starting point for further expansion in the Adriatic and Balkan region.”
Dejan Hervol, CEO 2HM Logistics: “We are happy and proud to be part of the Neele-Vat group and look forward to our future together. We are pleased that we can and will now offer all European services to foreign customers to further strengthen our position in Central Europe for the domestic markets.”
Neele-Vat has almost 50 years of logistics experience and is now active in 15 countries, with more than 35 locations, 1,200+ employees and an annual turnover of approximately € 700 million. With the acquisition of 2HM Logistics, the Neele-Vat family business has further expanded and strengthened its network in Eastern Europe to meet the needs of their customers in the areas of air freight, sea freight, customs, and warehousing & distribution.
