A transportcompany with millions of miles of history

It is 1894 when Thomas Boers makes his start as the founder of a family business that has witnessed every change in the transport industry. The first lorries, the arrival of trailers, the development of the sea container, the focus on environmentally-conscious transport... Milestones in the history of a company that witnessed great change but has always remained true to itself. Small-scale and flexible, professional, and customer-oriented.
