Stoelen International Transport BVBA became part of the Vollers Group at the beginning of 2018. Prior to the takeover, Vollers had already worked with Stoelen for more than 12 years. About a year ago, the idea of combining forces to form a transport company within the Vollers Group began.
Stoelen International Transport was founded in 1971 by Gustaaf Stoelen. Like many transport companies, commissioning was carried out with only one ruck. For more than 20 years the truck was driven exclusively for the company „De Beuckelaer“ in Herentals. Dirk Stoelen took over the company from his father in 1991. Since then, new customers have been acquired and the vehicle fleet has been expanded step by step.
The expansion into new transport possibilities and business fields in the transport market creates additional operational flexibility. The know-how, energy and hands-on mentality of an entrepreneur who has built a successful business and runs it with passion and commitment will undoubtedly be contagious to all of us and will influence our development as a professional transport company in Antwerp.
„After running my own transport company for more than 27 years, the time seemed right to become part of a larger group. The acquisition was completed on January 1, 2018. We see this step as an opportunity to combine the various transport activities of both companies into one unit and are prepared to grow further in the future“. (Dirk Stoelen)
