Van den Bosch acquires Willis Larsson Transport

Van den Bosch is strengthening its position in Northern Europe by taking over the Swedish transport company Willis Larsson Transport AB. This acquisition results in a further expansion of the logistic activities in the dry bulk segment.

The family owned company Willis Larsson Transport AB was founded in Lidköping, Sweden, in 1961. The company has acquired a strong position in the intermodal transport of dry bulk goods. With its own modern fleet of trucks and 40FT pressurised containers, Willis Larsson serves Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Benelux, Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom. The acquisition will result in a further growth of the dry bulk division of Van den Bosch, which will grow into more than 1400 modern silo trailers and silo containers.

Growth as logistics coordinator
Rico Daandels, CEO of Van den Bosch: “The acquisition of Willis Larsson represents the next step in our international growth strategy. As a logistics coordinator, Van den Bosch wants to become the European top player in bulk logistics. With the use of data and the right equipment, we can provide intermodal solutions for our customers – both in the field of dry and liquid bulk transport for the food and chemical industry. By taking over Willis Larsson, we will strengthen our logistic network in the Nordics and expand our leading position in the transport with pressurised containers. I’m pleased that CEO Sverker Larsson and his team will continue to be part of the company after the takeover and add their experience to the Van den Bosch organisation.”

Access to modern data systems
Sverker Larsson, CEO of Willis Larsson Transport: “Joining Van den Bosch connects us with the extensive European transport network and gives us access to the knowledge and experience of modern data systems. We have noticed that digital solutions have become increasingly important for our clients. The strong reputation of Van den Bosch ensures that we can continue to be a high quality partner in the future, both to our employees and our customers. Moreover, Van den Bosch will also bring its expertise in the field of liquid bulk transport to the Nordics, which will result in a further extension of our activities.”
