History

For 50 years, our customers have counted on our reliable deliveries, skilled drivers and a well-oiled company. Customer focus, service, the right equipment and specialist cleaning are the connecting thread in the success of Van den Bosch Transporten. The company was founded by Ad van den Bosch in 1964. He started with a single truck.

From road transport to intermodal transport
The company developed because of good and consistent quality and owned a truck cleaning station in as early as 1975.
 
After steady growth and a number of new sites, the cleaning station was replaced by an ultra-modern one in 1986.Van den Bosch Transporten expanded into Germany (Salzgitter) and Belgium (Tielt) in the years after. Also other forms of transport were discovered, by sea and by rail. The road of intermodal transport was taken. A container terminal arose in Bergen op Zoom. The new General Manager Peter van den Bosch deliberately chose to expand intermodal transport. This was emphasized by the takeover of Jumbotainers from Rotterdam in 2003, which added deep sea transport to the company’s services.

Leading the way
In the same year, branches were established in the UK and Van den Bosch Transporten took over Silo Tank in Gunskirchen, adding an Austrian and a Hungarian branch. After some other takeovers in 2006, a consolidation phase followed between 2007 and 2010 to create a sustainable and solid base for the company. 

 

In 2010, it was the first time for the company that more transport was carried out by intermodal transport than by road. The road taken will be expanded in the next years and from 2011 onwards, the focus will be on sustainability, operational excellence, flexibility and on innovation.

Van den Bosch Transporten also wants to be leading the way in the future, with the result for the customer at the focus of everybody’s attention. For your benefit has been our core business for more than 50 years.
