‘’We want to be able to change gears quickly with our customers and Veenstra|Fritom makes this possible!”

Marco Jacob Holwerda — Sales & Marketing Manager - WIFO-Anema

To complete the supply chain in its business processes, agricultural machinery manufacturer WIFO-Anema Started to look for a logistic service supplier in 2012. In Veenstra|Fritom they found a partner that really understand what they are about and is there for them 24/7: “Many of our shipments have odd sizes, but this is never an issue for Veenstra|Fritom, who has extensive experience in irregular shaped shipments.”

WIFO-Anema is renowned when it comes to agricultural machinery and attachments. Based in Ferwert, in the northern part of the province of Friesland, the Netherlands, the company was founded in 1961 by father and son Anema. Today the third generation of the family, Wytze Anema, is leading the company. The company grew exponentially, so it could accelerate export abroad. Veenstra|Fritom was the logical choice in a logistic partner, having extensive experience in shipping irregular shaped shipments and a lot of knowledge regarding shipping abroad.

Marco Jacob Holwerda, Sales & Marketing manager at WIFO-Anema: “If we want to be able to quickly respond to changing demands of our customers, we need a carrier that can respond with the same flexibility. We were looking for a carrier who knows its way round the countries we are mainly focused on: Western Europe and especially France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. But they also have an extensive network of partners in the rest of the countries where our machinery is delivered to. It is important to us to meet the expectations of our customers, for whom a timely and correct delivery is of great importance. The price-quality ratio was key in choosing a carrier. The direct communication lines, personal contact and the flexibility made Veenstra the right fit for us.”

The products of WIFO-Anema don’t have regular sizes, which requires a certain ‘know-how’ and approach. “The irregular sizes have never been a problem when submitting shipments. A shipment can be submitted 24/7 and are often picked up the same day. In some cases, we have to quickly adjust to our customer demands and deliver a machine on a short-term notice basis. Veenstra|Fritom always helps to find the best solution.”

Both companies are family business with the same Friesian roots and identity. “Like Veenstra|Fritom, quality and excellent service to our customers are a central part of who we are. If something goes wrong, it is adequately taken care of and resolved. In Veenstra|Fritom we found a flexible and reliable partner in this.”
