NL: Van Dooren Transport takes over Urselmann Transport Bergen (LB)

Van Dooren Transport, specialized in transporting flower bulbs, young plants, soft fruit plants and tree growing products has recently signed the contract to take over Urselmann Transport Bergen (UTB).

UTB and Van Dooren have been working together as partners for years mainly in transporting perennial and flower bulbs. So, the connection between the two has been like this for years, on both the business and personal front. This connection and the lack of a successor at UTB as well as the changing laws regarding transport is what made Geert Urselmann decide to join Van Dooren. With its main reason to continue the service provided for their customers and of course to secure the jobs of his current staff.

The market of UTB is mainly focused on the Dutch provinces of North- and Mid- Limburg and Brabant. For Van Dooren this was also an important reason for the takeover. Van Dooren views North Limburg as an area with lots of potential. Both in perennial and flower bulbs, tree growing, soft fruit- and vegetable plants. With this take over, besides the current locations in Hillegom and Breezand, Van Dooren is hoping to make a fresh start in Limburg.

With the takeover both Van Dooren Transport and Van Dooren Forwarding want to position themselves stronger. The area of Venlo is a perfect location for the cross-docking of many types of transport of the Dutch and German relations.
All personnel of UTB are joining Van Dooren after the takeover that will take place on the 1st of September, 2018. Geert Urselmann will be operating as manager of the location in Bergen.

Urselmann Transport Bergen was founded in 1957 by the Urselmann brothers. Van Dooren Transport was founded in 1895 and is now being run by the 5th generation of Van Dooren.
Geert Urselmann: ”By the joining of the networks of UTB and Van Dooren Transport we can respond more incisively to demands from the market. We are convinced that, with this takeover, we have found the right formula to guarantee the logistic of products for our customers as well as lifting the currently provided services to a higher level. On behalf of UBT we would like to thank all our costumers for the faith they had in us and to promise to keep working on making your logistics a success in this new formula.”
