Daily Logistics Group (DLG) takes over the logistics activities of GIST Nederland

From August 28, 2022, Daily Logistics Group (DLG) will take over the logistics activities – together with the relevant employees – from GIST Nederland. This involves taking over the logistics services for flowers and plants mainly in Benelux and Export to the United Kingdom.

The takeover concerns a distribution center in Bleiswijk (NL), 145 units and 75 employees and will be a further improvement of the existing services of the Daily Logistics Group (DLG).

GIST Nederland is known for its expertise, excellent customer service and modern vision of logistics operations in the flower and plant sectors. This takeover creates a direct specialization in this market which will bring added value to the network in the Benelux and to exports to the United Kingdom.

“The resumption of these activities will strengthen our logistics services. Rapid changes throughout the supply chain world were the reason we made this strategic decision to expand and strengthen our services. We have noticed that the flower and plant sector fits perfectly into our existing services. With the acquisition of GIST Nederland, we immediately create a solid place in this market segment. Thanks to this move upmarket, we are able to offer our customers an even better range of services. Upgrading is also necessary to be able to keep pace with flexibility, energy transitions and digitalisation,” says Joost Visbeen, CEO of Daily Logistics Group (DLG).

Julian Bailey, MD of Gist Nederland: “The sale of this business is a strategic decision to give a new direction to the company. We are delighted that our employees are taken over by a family business like DLG. »
