A century of dedication and growth: Berkman Forwarding

Berkman Forwarding is a family business established in 1903 by Johannes Berkman. It began as a small coal trading company and evolved into an international freight forwarding company called Vobex in 1976. In 1988, Vobex was renamed Berkman Forwarding.

Over the past century, Berkman Forwarding has grown into a renowned global service provider. Our company is dedicated to quality and evolution, driven by family values and an ambitious spirit.

With headquarters in Barendrecht, the Netherlands, and eight offices in Vietnam, China, and India, we offer a range of worldwide goods transport, storage, and distribution services. Our services also include customs handling, transport insurance, and claims handling.

Our mission is not only to move goods but also to shape the future of global transport through customer-focused and innovative approaches. We aim to increase our impact on logistics and the world by making our services more sustainable for the market.
