An entrepreneur from Milsbeek has built an international company in 35 years.

RELEASE - 26 July 2021.

Haulier Nico Mooij is buying twenty-five Scania V8s.

Mooij Forwarding & Logistics B.V. of Milsbeek has acquired twenty-five Scania vehicles with a sixteen-litre V8 engine (type S520 large-volume) to expand its fleet. "Finding good drivers is not easy," says company founder and director Nico Mooij. "But we can afford to be selective, thanks in part to this top-class Swedish equipment.”

The Scania V8 is more than just a pleasure for drivers. "In terms of performance, reliability, maintenance costs and fuel consumption, these tractor units perform superbly. A solid investment." The vehicles work in three-week shifts, during which the drivers travel across Europe and take over from each other. At weekends, vehicles and crew go down to one of Mooij's three branches, equipped with facilities such as canteens and showers.

Nico Mooij from Milsbeek started the business in 1986 with just one Scania. His company has existed for exactly 35 years this month. Through perseverance and the power of innovation, he has grown it into a medium-sized transport company: 87 trucks, 117 trailers (mega box / tautline / container), 30 to 40 charters, three own branches (Milsbeek NL, Berlin D and Legnica PL). Mooij Forwarding & Logistics stands for consistent high quality, long-term customer relationships, a good atmosphere, low staff turnover, advanced ICT, and communication.

The Limburg-based entrepreneur has developed a hub'n'spoke system for transports to and from Eastern Europe. Trailers are uncoupled at strategic points and handed over to another driver. If possible, Mooij covers long distances with a double-stack load in the trailer (double loading). This saves up to 50 % of the number of transports thanks to perfect planning organisation.

"Twenty years ago, we started with double-stack transport for a customer in Ukraine. Over the years we have developed this mode of transport considerably.” Double-stack transport is not only cost-effective, but also promotes sustainability because of the reduction in the number of kilometres driven.

In 35 years, Mooij Forwarding & Logistics has become an international company, with drivers from different countries and trucks registered all over the world. "We operate at this level to remain competitive in the European transport market. We are a healthy company and will focus on further development for sustainable transport in the coming years.”
