From 1 to 165 in 40 years
Ben Becker Internationaal Transportbedrijf b.v. is located on the "De Grachten" industrial estate in Soest, with more than 165 trucks, close to 275 employees and premises of nearly 50,000 square metres, with 20,000 square metres of storage space. Ben Becker began the company in 1970 and his son Wim took up the reins in 1995. The concept remained the same: to pamper and care for customers, because satisfied customers result in new customers.
Over a century of expertise
The Becker clan has been in transport for more than a century. Ben Becker had driven for his father when he started on his own 40 years ago, with one truck and one customer for whom he did all shipments. The company really grew by itself, says Becker in hindsight. 'I grew with my customers, I also gained new customers, by word of mouth, for example.'
It wasn't long before Ben Becker had to add a truck and an employee. He would still park the truck in front of his home, but he bought a house with a large back garden soon after. One of his employees moved into the house and the back garden was used to park the expanding fleet.
