We strengthen our Dutch trucking department with the acquisition of Van der Stek Transport

We are happy to announce that we are acquiring van der Stek Transport, a trucking company based in Strijen, as of March 1, 2023. The company has a strong reputation for providing high-quality pre- and on-carriage services and has been working with our company for many years.

With this acquisition, we continue the long-standing collaboration between van der Stek Transport and ColliCare Logistics. The company has been providing services for our sea freight customers shipping to and from the Netherlands since 2011. The acquisition will bring the current equipment and employees, previously managed by van der Stek Transport, under our management of the ColliCare Logistics office in Schiedam, the Netherlands.
