About Districon, the supply chain company

Supply chain flows

Can you imagine how many goods flow around the world, on land, by air or on water? Goods are transported from source, handled in terminals, airports and ports. Stock is moved to and is stored in warehouses, before and after processing in factories; finished products are transported from the factory door to and through distribution centers (DC's) and from these DC's to ultimately reach their buyers, through virtual shops or physical outlets. In many cases, the flow is often reversed for returns to DC or factory.

The world is changing rapidly. Technological developments drive continuous improvement of logistics. Transparency and collaboration within the supply chain leads to improving and optimizing flows. Meanwhile, mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and alliances create economies of scale, resulting in logistic opportunities and challenges. Regulations change constantly adding more complexity. And finally, our customers demand increasingly higher standards of quality, service, durability and safety and security.

Supply chain excellence can be a distinctive weapon in this continuous competitive struggle.

Sustainability

Districon supports private and public parties in the field of sustainable logistics. Sustainability is an essential part of our service portfolio and strategy. This is also evident from the fact that Districon is co-owner of BigMile.

Districon is also becoming more sustainable in our own business operations. We do this by making the mobility of our colleagues more flexible via public transport, (electric) bicycles and electric cars. And Districon is a member of Lean & Green. Lean & Green is the market leader in CO₂ reduction programs for the logistics sector.

History in logistics

Forty-five years of entrepreneurship and craftsmanship have made Districon what it is today. In 1976 Simon Jan Bakker, a logistics expert in the food retail, decided to start-up his own consultancy practice. With his profile as a Distribution Consultant, he founded Districon.
