COVID-19 l Update

Posted on in the category News

Dear Stakeholder,

As you will undoubtedly know, this past weekend revolved entirely around the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Dutch government has announced a new set of precautionary measures and urgently requested everyone to comply with them. We, the GEBA Trans team, will of course do so and have implemented measures to keep our staff members safe. To safeguard our continuity, we have implemented the following measures:

  • Both our internal operational departments (Accounting and Administration) and our Sales Department will work from home.
  • Our Planning Departments at our Venlo and Tilburg offices will partially work from our offices. The absence of other colleagues ensures they can maintain at least the recommended 1.5 metre distance. Part of our risk diversification strategy is to have a segment of our planners work from home. This ensures that our operational continuity is safeguarded at all times.
  • The previously implemented measure not to participate in any face-to-face meetings (both internally and externally) is maintained.

GEBA Trans will remain fully operational and has the capacity and staff members to continue its services. Precautions already or yet to be implemented by various European governments, may make it impossible to complete all transports and deliveries on schedule. Our Planning Department will continue to update you about this to the greatest possible extent. We do hope you understand that force majeure does apply here and that we cannot offer guarantees in this respect. We will continue to stay up-to-date about the situation in all European countries and will of course continue to update you if and when new developments arise that might affect us.

Please rest assured that now, more than ever, our team will do anything to limit any nuisance you might experience to an absolute minimum. We are grateful for your cooperation and understanding during this exceptional time. Your contact person at GEBA Trans remains available for any questions, remarks and orders.

We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and strong during these hard times.

Kind regards,

GEBA Trans

Relocation headquarter Venlo

Posted on in the category Blog

On July 7th, 2017, GEBA Trans relocated its headquarters to a brand new location, right in the centre of one of the primary logistics hubs in Europe. Our new address is:

Vasco da Gamaweg 1b
The Netherlands

This new office location is furnished in the typical GEBA Trans style, a look refreshing and transparent to the eye. An inspiring setting with state of the art and flexible workplaces for our staff members.

This future-proof setting enables our staff members to attain excellent results within a motivating work environment. We designed it so people will feel at home and have ample opportunity to relax alone or with colleagues once challenging projects are completed. Various areas are available to seclude oneself during complex tasks, have personal meetings with customers and brainstorm with colleagues about logistical issues and solutions.

The Dutch College for Logistics (‘Vervoerscollege’), where both professional drivers and other staff members in the logistics industry receive professional education is housed in the same building. This welcoming benefit will enable us to turn training and education into a continuous process for our people, thus making sure we stay on top of new developments in the logistics industry.

We are convinced that our people make all the difference in our endeavour to attain a consistent high delivery reliability of our logistical services and support. Our objective is always to completely unburden our customers. As a responsible and motivating employer, it is our task to optimally facilitate our people to accomplish just that. We therefore take great pride and satisfaction in commissioning our new headquarters in this European hotspot of logistics.

Should you be curious about our new ‘home’, then please feel welcome to visit us any time.
