Davy de Vlieger, general manager at Omega Pharma Belgium, comments: “We strive to offer our customers the best service we can, and our products being delivered properly is a crucial part of this. Trans-o-flex Belgium has been our logistics partner for many years now and we are pleased that we will be able to continue working with them.”
Gerrit Mastenbroek, general manager at PostNL Parcels, says: “We are really delighted with the trust shown in us through the long-term extension of the contract. The good, sustainable relationship between Omega Pharma and trans-o-flex Belgium will continue. The company can look forward to working with a quality contract with a minimum of 98% delivery, something which is unique in this sector. As the market leader in the pharmaceutical vertical market, trans-o-flex Belgium is committed to the further development of this sector and has found a good parent company in PostNL Parcels to facilitate this.”
From its early beginnings 25 years ago, Omega Pharma CEO Marc Coucke has carefully considered each step in his company’s path to growth. One very important element of this growth has been the company’s trust in suppliers who place high priority on transport. Transport MIT carried out this task for many years, always maintaining the standards set by Omega Pharma and the pharmaceutical sector. Transport MIT was acquired by trans-o-flex, and now, with the announced acquisition of trans o-flex by PostNL, it is PostNL’s turn to not only affirm this cooperation with Omega Pharma but also to reinforce it, using all of the experience and facilities it has at its disposal. Omega Pharma and PostNL are discussing ways to optimise transport as a response to possible expansions of Omega Pharma’s activities.
PostNL is the inventive partner in the world of sending and receiving. We have been so for 200 years already. We are primarily active in the fields of mail, parcels and e-commerce, but we also offer services in the areas of data and document management, direct marketing and fulfilment. Outside the Netherlands, we are active in Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium and Luxemburg. PostNL employs a total of more than 59,000 people. In 2013 our revenues reached € 4.3 billion.
We like to stay ahead of things. We are the most modern postal company in the world. We are proud of that. As the first listed postal company, we are an example to the rest of the world in automatic letter sorting. And our innovative parcels network is completely adapted to the wishes of web retailers.
