Mission and visionMission
Our goal is to ensure client satisfaction by providing premium quality solutions for all logistical challenges.
The Ter Haak Group aims to stimulate the logistics chain to and from Amsterdam and, where possible, direct that chain via its five subsidiaries. These subsidiaries are all focussed on port-related activities. The Ter Haak Group has an excellent location, with seaports, waterways, railways and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport all easily accessible. Combined with our own deep-sea, barge and coaster quays, this allows us to provide the fastest and most efficient cargo handling.
Modern terminal facilities in Amsterdam, IJmuiden and Almere, plus a wide range of options for transportation via rail, our own fleet of trucks or barges to numerous destinations across Europe. This is the foundation that allows the Ter Haak Group to offer first class intermodal and multimodal solutions to shipping, forwarding and receiving companies. Add in cargo handling and storage in our own distribution centres and at strategic locations throughout Europe and you have genuine optimisation of the entire logistic supply chain.
The Ter Haak Group is a family concern with nearly a century of experience in the port of Amsterdam. The corporate and emotional involvement in every aspect of business offers significant added value to our clients.
At the heart of the Ter Haak Group’s strategy is a desire for growth that is based on long-term client relations. We believe that the quality of turnover and services is more important than the quantity, and aim to fund our growth through result-oriented commerce and a conservative financial policy.
Our subsidiaries complement each other to create a wide range of synergies. By joining forces, the companies within the Ter Haak Group offer customised concepts that can include any or all modalities. Our services are devised to achieve maximum efficiency and our software and edi solutions provide the requisite transparency for our clients. Whenever possible we supplement our services with added value logistic activities and warehousing, on site if required.
Ultimately it is the people at every level of the organisation that determine our success. The Ter Haak Group constantly strives to ensure a safe and healthy working environment and to offer our employees equal opportunities for development. As a result our companies are renowned for operating in a decisive and client-oriented manner.
Our working method is characterised by a continuous focus on both innovation and providing the best possible service. We follow a long tradition of offering fast, flexible and reliable tailor-made services that meet the requirements of our clients, with an entrepreneurial and creative spirit to the fore. Integrity and a respect for the environment and society are woven through every aspect of our operations.
