Marco van der Velden has been Managing Director and CEO of Berg Hortimotive Group since February. Due to an increasing need of food in the world, an upscaling horticultural industry and growing scarcity of knowledge, he sees great opportunities for data-driven solutions in horticulture. Or as he calls it: Horticulture 4.0.
We are Berg Hortimotive, a team of enthusiastic people who deliver high-quality products with passion and pleasure. We have been doing this for over 50 years, together with partners from our global network. Our goal is to be the right partner for logistical solutions in horticulture, with respect for people and the environment, wherever in the world.
Horticulture driven by Dutch experience
Greenhouse horticulture also ensures that greenhouse products, such as vegetables and fruit, are delivered to the consumer under the best conditions. So that the best and tastiest products can be enjoyed anywhere in the world. Berg Hortimotive is proud of being able to make a contribution here.
Berg is known all over the world, originally for the innovative pipe rail trolleys, but people are increasingly finding the way to Berg for complete greenhouse horticulture logistics solutions. We call this from picking to packing. Berg is also involved at an early stage with new construction projects or with alterations to existing logistics systems. Naturally with the objective of effectuating optimal efficiency for clients.
Each project, or product delivery from Berg Hortimotive's extensive range starts, somewhere in the world, with an interview with the client by one of our service partners, resellers or turnkey builders from the worldwide network of Berg Hortimotive. They map the requirements precisely and, in collaboration, they translate these into an advice, a project request or an offer of a concrete product. After that, the Berg Hortimotive staff work on detailing the actual solution offered. Because we help greenhouse horticulture forwards!
Picking to packing
Based on more than 50 years of experience in greenhouse horticulture, Berg Hortimotive has developed a range of products for carrying out and optimising the entire greenhouse logistics.
Berg Hortimotive is very well aware that its work is not done once a project or a product has been delivered, but that this is really just the start. Because from then on we continue to work together with you. Training, support, maintenance and service is then needed to keep things running optimally and permanently. Our service partners are indispensable in this respect. We have established a worldwide network of service partners.
