It is not unusual to see the Bridgewater Logistics logo proudly displayed at high-performance sports events considering the very competitive streak of this company that has ensured that it is always ahead of its closest competitors in the transport and logistics industry.
In addition to sponsoring the SuperGP Champions Trophy, the Bridgewater Logistics team is also a proud backer of Barend van Rooyen, a well-known middleweight boxer from Fochville.
Quinton de Villiers, managing director of Bridgewater Logistics, says that associating with a personality in a very demanding full-contact sport such as boxing was a very sensible move for the company.
“Being a great boxer takes immense discipline and dedication, in addition to skill. In many ways, I believe it mirrors our own industry and business. You’re simply not going to the best in the highly competitive transport and logistics sectors if you do not display traits similar to those of Barend. He is not only an incredible athlete, but everyone at Bridgewater Logistics also admires his passion for what he does,” says the managing director.
Van Rooyen’s tape comprises 25 wins, five losses and one draw, and he is trained by former WBU welterweight titlist, Jan Bergman.
