BosDaalen was created in 2021 from the merger of CARGOBOSS (founded in 1902) and Van Daalen Transport (founded in 1920). The great-grandfathers of the current directors were the founders of these two companies that are both firmly rooted in the Westland region in the Dutch province of Zuid-Holland. These family firms have been working together closely since the 1970s, and have grown massively over the years. This growth has seen us increasingly turn our attention to other countries, specifically Germany, Switzerland and northern France. BosDaalen has now developed into an internationally operating company, with the fourth generation currently sitting on the board.
We operate in a market that is increasingly working faster and fresher. That is exactly why our core values that go all the way back to the founding fathers are so important. We aim to be a top player in our industry, but we will only stay at the top by remaining true to who we are. We are only too happy to continue achieving what our great-grandfathers set out to do. Since day one of our existence we have provided certainty and openness, and are happy to dedicate our team effort to taking care of every shipment our customers ask us to carry.
