The Wim Bosman Group becomes Mainfreight

The Wim Bosman Group, 3PL+ logistics service provider, is going to change its name to Mainfreight as of December 2016. Mainfreight is a logistics service provider with 239 branches all over the world. The Wim Bosman Group has been a Mainfreight member, since it was purchased by the organisation in 2011.

With locations in Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and the United States the Wim Bosman Group will be able to optimize its integrated warehousing, transport and distribution solutions. The name change puts the organisation in a better position to grow.

In 1963 Mr. Wim Bosman, founder of the Wim Bosman Group, bought his first truck. In 53 years the organisation has become an important logistic services provider in Europe, with over 2.000 highly motivated team members. In April 2011 the Wim Bosman Group was purchased by Mainfreight and as a result of this acquisition the organisation became a global player backed by a powerful network for customer specific and preferably integrated warehousing, transport and distribution solutions.

In the last five years Wim Bosman has opened new branches in Bergen op Zoom (The Netherlands), Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Frankfurt and Gelsenkirchen (Germany), London (United Kingdom) and Poznań/ Luboń (Poland). Beside expansion of the branches in Europe, it also changed addresses at the Air & Ocean branches in Rotterdam and Antwerp and already re-named the existing Wim Bosman branches in the countries France, Poland, Russia and Ukraine to Mainfreight.

Global supply chain provider Mainfreight was founded by Mr. Bruce Plested in 1978 in New Zealand. In the years that followed the company expanded its global footprint by opening branches across Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. Currently the organisation has 239 branches with more than 6,400 staff worldwide.
