CONTINUITY AND RELIABILITY
The Koolwijk family company was founded in 1922. Piet Koolwijk started with transporting milk cans from farmers to the local milk factory.
Almost a century later, Koolwijk grew out to become a full-service logistics provider. Grandson Piet Koolwijk now lead an international enterprise with almost 170 staff members. And, for three generations, Koolwijk means acting as promised.
Koolwijk owns a vehicle fleet of 75 trucks. The first step in this process started in the sixties, when Arie Koolwijk purchased his first container chassis. Today we transport a lot of containers from and to the Ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. We also frequently use the inland terminals in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. And that’s not only road transport, we also use water and railroads. Koolwijk emphasizes on sustainable logistics. We also have the expertise to transport refrigerated containers with connected gen-sets, tipping containers and our special container-pallet chassis allows us to ship break-bulk shipments where pallet exchange is desired.
The Koolwijk headquarters has been located in Bergambacht, the Netherlands, since 1989. After having completed various expansions, this location is home to a workshop, truck cleaning facilities and warehouse space of 30,000 square meters. The sheer size and full-service proposition allows Koolwijk to maintain a short and flexible turnaround.
