Passion, ambition and progress
A rich history

Passion, ambition and progress

Van den Bosch has a rich history – and it’s a story we’re proud of. Founded in 1964 by Ad van den Bosch with one single truck, the organisation has grown to become an internationally operating logistics service provider specialising in bulk. In 1998 Peter took over the company from his father. Under his leadership it grew to become an authority in bulk logistics with offices throughout Europe and beyond. Rico Daandels was appointed CEO in 2017. Peter has remained shareholder of the company and participates in the Advisory Board. 

Van den Bosch has grown thanks to a shared passion for the profession, our collective ambition and progressive way of thinking. And one thing has never changed in all those years: Van den Bosch only wants to go one way: forward. From road transport to intermodal. From Erp to Europe, Africa and the Middle East. And from bulk transport to smart innovations and promising concepts.

Discover our story:
