Move Intermodal, known for its commitment to sustainability and intermodal transport, takes a significant step in strengthening and expanding its service offering with the acquisition of Van Dijk Logistics. The merger creates a powerful combination offering a comprehensive range of intermodal transport solutions for dry bulk, packed cargo, and partial loads. Luc Driessen, CEO of Move Intermodal, states, “This acquisition is a strategic move to better serve our customers. Combining our strengths with Van Dijk Logistics enables us to broaden and strengthen our service offering, allowing us to deliver top-quality sustainable transport solutions together.”
The choice for the acquisition is based on the complementarity of both companies. Move Intermodal and Van Dijk Logistics share a history of over 30 years in intermodal transport between Italy and the Benelux/Ruhr region. The collaboration enhances market positioning and provides customers and partners with an even broader and more efficient service. John van Dijk, former owner of Van Dijk Logistics, expresses, “We are delighted to be part of the Move Group. The complementarity of our companies creates synergies that benefit our customers. Combining our expertise in LTL/partial loads with Move Intermodal’s strong position in FTL, dry bulk, and forwarding is a winning combination.”
The acquisition of Van Dijk Logistics by Move Intermodal not only ensures the continuity of Van Dijk Logistics but also opens the door to joint growth. Both companies will continue to operate autonomously within the Move Group, preserving their identity. All employees and the management of Van Dijk Logistics in the Netherlands and Italy will remain on board.
According to Driessen, the collaboration between Move Intermodal and Van Dijk Logistics offers new opportunities for exchanging business and leveraging each other’s strengths. The combined purchasing power will be used to control costs, and synergies between the two companies will lead to more efficient operations. Luc Driessen adds, “Together with Van Dijk Logistics, we are heading to a promising future. This acquisition strengthens our position as a one-stop-shop for sustainable intermodal transports to and from Italy. From a single pallet to a full truck, we can provide hassle-free transport solutions for our customers.”
