Dutch logistics service provider Bos Dynamics has announced a deal to takeover Addink Zutphen as of the 1st of June. Bos Dynamics says the acquisition shall strengthen its position in the road transportation market.
According to reports in the Netherlands, all 30 Addink Zutphen employees and its 22 trucks will become part of Bos Dynamics. The staff and trucks will form an independent branch in Zutphen under the management of Simeon Roodenburg.
The deal means that after 182 years, the last truck with ‘Addink Zutphen’ will hit the road. The family business has its origins in the 18th century and enjoys a good reputation in its local area. Bos Dynamics is also a family company, and it is hoped that the Addink Zutphen staff shall experience a similar company culture under their new employers.
In addition to 22 trucks, Addink Zutphen’s fleet boasts a wide variety of trailers and a modern warehouse in Zutphen.
According to the companies, the Addink Zutphen’s speciality suits perfectly with Bos Dynamics’ activity, namely the transport and logistics of high-end outsized cargo. This, the parties say, will make Bos Dynamics the market leader in Western Europe, a position that the company would like to continue to strengthen.
Commenting on the deal, Cor-Albert Bos, director and owner of Bos Dynamics said:
“We especially want to expand our presence in the Benelux and Germany and work on further network densification. The English market is now added to this and we look forward to developing this further within our specialization. Moreover, just like us, the transporter is a family business that focuses on complete logistics solutions, which means that our mission and values are very similar.
