Van den Bosch takes over part of Gé Simons activities
The agreement was concluded between Rico Daandels, CEO of Van den Bosch, and Frank Simons, owner of Gé Simons, and will take effect from 14 November.
Gé Simons Internationaal Transport was founded in 1964 and starting with one truck, but has grown over the decades into an internationally operating logistics service provider.
The activities include the intermodal transport of dry bulk goods with silo pressurised containers to the Italian market.
The acquisition concerns the activities of Gé Simons that focus on the transport of dry bulk goods. This means that Van den Bosch is further expanding its transport network on to the European market.
"Gé Simons' strong focus on Italy is in line with our European growth strategy as an intermodal logistics service provider. The acquisition will strengthen our position on the Italian market and develop our dry bulk activities further," said Rico.
In recent years, Van den Bosch has invested heavily into the dry bulk segment and is now a European market leader in silo pressure container transport.
The dry bulk activities will continue under the flag of Van den Bosch and will be integrated into the company’s branches.
