50 years Van den Bosch Transporten

In 1987 AVEBE sent the first transport order to Van den Bosch Transporten. This was more than 20 years after Ad van den Bosch had founded his company. Shortly after this more orders followed and this resulted in a good cooperation between AVEBE and Van den Bosch Transporten, lasting already close to 30 years.

During this period we jointly worked on setting up Intermodal transport concepts to many countries throughout Europe. A transformation from a typical road-transport company to a provider of Intermodal transport. This has proved to be an excellent strategy. Together with Van den Bosch, AVEBE has been able to provide its customers with sustainable ways of transport. From road to rail and shortsea, this has become indispensable to ou way of working in 2014.

The expertise and experience provided by Van den Bosch has always been one of the main reasons to work together. Which transittimes are best? Which thermals can best be used, which way is most efficient to organize the local transport after the arrival of the containers? Can Van den Bosch provide us with an overview of the location of the containers? A few of many questions that arose when implementing a new project.

Has this always been error free? Obviously not, but any possible difficulties were always resolved in close and good cooperation without affecting the reliability of the deliveries.

On behalf of the entire AVEBE organization we would like to congratulate Van den Bosch Transporten with its 50 year anniversary.
