ODTH at a glance/in brief

Since 1978

+40 years of experience





Our pride, our family business

ODTH First Class Logistics was founded in 1978 by Jos DE WAEL and has since become the reference in the Rumst-Willebroek-Mechelen area for high-quality logistics.

ODTH First Class Logistics has 4 sites and currently more than 150.000 m² of warehousing space. Our more than 170 employees care for your goods. Steady growth has been sustained in recent years.

Our strategy is clear. We’ve been investing for years in our processes, infrastructure and locations, and are the owners of our warehouses and IT systems. We thus employ an asset-based philosophy. Our people are well trained and have contributed to making us the great company that we are today. Even in a challenging labour market, staff turnover at ODTH is negligible. Our customers are therefore certain of true, actual “years” of experience.

As a family business, we’re able to ensure short decision-making processes. This allows us to respond flexibly to changing customer requirements. Our motivated workers, warehouse personnel, employees and managers strive daily for maximum customer focus. We work for a variety of customers active in sectors such as FMCG, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, dry food, steel & coil and high-quality goods.
