BATIM International Transportation and Freight Forwarding was founded as a private partnership in 1994 in Nowy Sącz. Since the beginning, the company has specialised in the field of freight forwarding. In April 1995, we relocated to nearby Stary Sącz. In 1997, as a result of revision of the Act on Commercial Law, the company was transformed into a general partnership and the BATIM logo was reserved. Germany and Italy were the company’s chief destinations in the years 1997 and 1998, however, in mid-1998 we added Great Britain to our offer, which has since then become our leading market.
BATIM provides transport and forwarding services using our own or hired fleet. Moreover, we offer ferry booking services for the ferry between the continent and Great Britain.
During its 20-year existence, BATIM has transformed from a small partnership employing a handful of workers into a big company with staff of nearly 610 people, including 530 drivers. Thanks to our employees’ absolute commitment and our careful business strategy, the company can compete successfully not only on the domestic market, but also internationally.
At the heart of our success lies excellent quality of our services as well as the state-of-the-art fleet comprising SCANIA and MERCEDES vehicles, all meeting the EURO 6 standard. All units are fully equipped with telematic devices manufactured by the Belgian company Wabco-Transics, allowing free communication between the drivers and the central office.
The years 2008 – 2015 have been marked by continuing growth and building up a prestigious position on the market. During this period, the company has gained wide recognition, as evidenced by numerous distinctions, nominations and awards. BATIM has established its position both locally and internationally and the company is now perceived as a valued partner in the industry.
BATIM works with some of the leading logistics service providers in Europe and our company receives many commendations for exemplary partnership, high quality of service and punctual deliveries.
In 2015, the company decided to erect a brand new central office building to ensure an even better standard of our service.
Our plans for the next few years include: fleet expansion, constant improvement of our service, conveying our knowledge to the next generation of drivers by creating a driving school for professional truck drivers and providing a friendly, comfortable and satisfying work environment for our employees.
