Van Moer Logistics expands services to chemical sector by acquisition of Group Van Loon
Group Van Loon specialises in the transport, cleaning, repair and storage of tank containers in Antwerp. The company employs 130 people and had an annual turnover of €20 million in 2021.
The acquisition of Group Van Loon fits in the strategy of Van Moer Logistics to expand and refine its offer for the chemical sector.
After adding the installations of Group Van Loon, Van Moer Logistics will carry out an average of 300 cleanings and 275 repairs per day.
Jo Van Moer, founder and CEO, Van Moer Logistics: "In recent years we have invested in the renewal and expansion of our SEVESO site in Zwijndrecht. With the arrival of the new filling lines and ADR halls, we further expand our services for the chemical sector. Thanks to the acquisition of Group Van Loon, we are now also doubling our capacity in bulk and tank container logistics."
Van Moer Logistics also offers a one stop shop service. Both the transport, storage, heating, filling, cleaning, checking and repair of the tank containers are done at the same location in Zwijndrecht. This saves the customer a lot of transport costs and tunnel surcharges.
Gunther Van Loon, CEO, Group Van Loon: "The family shareholders see Van Moer Logistics as a reliable party that also has the necessary credibility and resources to continue our work. Also for our employees there are now additional growth possibilities and opportunities.
“We have paid much attention to that 'cultural match' where Van Moer Logistics shares the same values and attaches great importance to a flat organizational structure, open culture, flexibility and lasting relationships with all stakeholders."
