Tailormade Logistics and Van Hove & Co join forces
Tailormade Logistics (TML) and Van Hove & Co, both well-known Ghent transport companies and worldwide coverage, located a stone's throw from each other, today announce that they will be working together.
Expert in regional and jockey transport
Frank Van Hove, Managing Director at Van Hove & Co: "Van Hove has always concentrated on regional transport, especially with mega-trailers, and jockey transport (driving new trucks to their destination).
Thanks to these specialisations, Van Hove & Co has grown into a healthy and successful company."
INNOVATION AND ECONOMIES OF SCALE
"The world is always changing and customers' demands and expectations are becoming increasingly complex," continues Frank Van Hove.
"In quarter 2 of 2023, we will commission our first 2 electric trucks for local JIT transports in the port of Ghent.
Such innovative drive systems are a revolution for our sector, but also require large investments."
"For continued digitalisation, keeping a sustainability and personnel policy up-to-date... you also need sufficient scale.
The cooperation with Tailormade Logistics allows us to strengthen ourselves in all these areas."
"TML is a local player with an international network and is familiar with many of our activities. A collaboration with Tailormade Logistics was therefore an obvious choice."
THE DNA IS A MATCH
Bert Vandecaveye, founder of TML:"We obviously know each other well. Van Hove has been active since the late 1970s and became a specialist in the automotive sector.
The DNA of Tailormade Logistics and Van Hove & Co matches: listening to the customer, being flexible in response to requests, great attention to quality (ISO 9001) and sustainability (ISO 14001), ... are all things both companies excel in.
INDEPENDENT BUSINESS UNIT
Van Hove & Co continues to operate as an independent business unit within the TML Group's Automotive business unit.
Van Hove has a 24,000 m² site in Ghent, with secure parking for trucks and trailers, facilities for drivers, truck-wash, garage and petrol station.
The fleet of 120 trailers and 35 tractors will be further expanded.
