11 December 2023

We are pleased to announce that FRANSEN J. TRANSPORT has finalized the last details and it will transfer all her activities to Corneel Geerts Transportgroup, from 1st of January 2024.

 

FRANSEN J. TRANSPORT is a neutral Belgian carrier specializing in the transport of goods between Benelux and Switzerland, both in transport and customs areas.

 

With this acquisition, both the transferor and the acquirer want to provide continuity for the customers and employees active within these companies.

 

The main priority is to guarantee operations, service level & neutrality.

Profit will be found in economies of scale and savings at admin & management level.

 

The name FRANSEN J. TRANSPORT as well as the activities, partners and staff will be retained, which will run completely parallel to the current activities of Corneel Geerts between Benelux and Switzerland.

 

The current location of FRANSEN J. TRANSPORT in Putte will be retained, which includes 1000m² of offices, 4000m² of warehouses, a workshop for fleet repairs and 10,000m² of parking.

 

In this way the current management of Corneel Geerts Transportgroup is committed to further expansion of the family-owned business, in addition to growing the fleet to almost 300 trailers and 135 tractor units, it can also expand their activities in Switzerland and add a new location for logistics activities to their services.

 

In addition to groupage within Europe at 6 service levels and 40,000 m² of logistics facilities in the Benelux, we will now also be able to offer customs- related activities “in house”.
