History

Aad said over the phone to Aernout :
" Come ! "

In 1997 Aernout Bakels called Aad de Haan, after having read in the Dutch IFW that ING Bankers had stopped funding De Haan Group, the most ancient forwarding group in Europe, founded in 1777, located in Alblasserdam (NL). Once again, a Bank had whacked a reputable wonderful company.

Aernout hurried, as a Christian brother of aged-Aad, to Alblasserdam and found in his blue glass headquarters the whole Group present: All eighteen directors of De Haan companies from all over the world, including Aad de Haan himself and Legal Representative (Curator) HAMM.

Aad suggested unceremoniously Aernout to the gathered people with the simple statement:

" This is the new owner! „
This is how entrepreneurs act in life!


Unperturbed calculated, rejected, cracked, embraced, cursed and groaned Hamm, Aernout, Aad, Evert-Jan and other lawyers with each other and exchanged for one guilder the property of all shares of De Haan Int. Forwarders, including logos, history, etcetera to Bakels.

  • Aad is dead . They say ...

  • Aad lives . Say Arnout, Aad and many ...

  • Aad is no Honorary Consul of Malta on earth anymore ...


Aernout therefore held the speech to the assembled businessmen of the Province of Brabant in Tilburg’s Willem 2 football stadium about...

MALTA .

The flagship of Aad.

Hardly anyone could inherit Aad’s Honorary Consul Title on that island, acquired in the sixties of last century, then only the man who just so love the Lord Jesus as Aad does: Aernout. After all, Malta is the beginning of the line between the Arab world and the European nations? Since Aernout’s nickname was already longtime "Mister Tunisia”, and Aad’s "Mister Malta", it stood to reason that Aernout was logically the one to pursue De Haan International Freight. Hence Aad 's "Come !” at the beginning of this story.

After assisting Hamm to make De Haan up and running again, Aernout launched De Haan again in the capable hands of Teus Houweling, who got the free hand of Aernout: Aernout's trademark, grounded in the Bible (never „have” confidence, therefore instead „give” confidence 100%). Teus was a former employee of De Haan and expert of the Malta-service. Teus chose, in consultation with Aernout, his own team in Alblasserdam and went to work.

That work still exists. De Haan also. All distribution of both BBC and Breda Transport and De Haan, still takes place from the Edisonweg in Alblasserdam. The warehouses nowadays are filled with goods of De Haan’s, BBC’s, Breda Transport’s, STC’s, Vectorys’ and Fahrenheit’s goods!

▪ Aad, in heaven, surely must be proud of us.
▪ We are proud of you, Aad:
▪ Nous maintiendrons!
