Ben Becker is one of the oldest and most well-known transportation companies in the Netherlands. With approximately 275 employees, a business park of circa 50.000 square meters – with 20.000 m2 of warehousing room, the company has established itself as a key player for national and international freight shipping in Europe.
With the digitization of industries, many companies are apprehensive of new players with disruptive business strategies. Think about Booking.com in hospitality, Uber for the taxi industry or Amazon for ecommerce.
Nonetheless, Ben Becker BVBA was one of the first companies in the transportation & logistics industry which quickly accepted the entrance of digital players. Instead of seeing Quicargo as competition, Ben Becker BVBA identified Quicargo as an opportunity for a conducive partnership.
“Back in May 2019, I wrote an article about digital players such as Quicargo and how we should not see them as a threat but as an opportunity”
