The company provides air cargo road feeder services, intermodal solutions, international transport, contract logistics, Benelux and retail distribution, temperature-controlled transport, event logistics and forwarding.
During the delivery ceremony, Sjel Wijngaards, Board Member of Jan de Rijk Logistics, Johan Martens, Fleet Manager at Jan de Rijk Logistics, and Johan Verdonschot, Sales Manager of Talson, spoke about their partnership.
“We have a strong partnership with Talson for 25 years,” said Wijngaards.
“As Jan de Rijk Logistics, we have experienced the quality and robustness of Talson vehicles first-hand and made an investment in more than 230 Talson vehicles in the last eight years.
“As a result of our satisfaction, we added 20 Air Cargo TAG TAL and 6 Air Cargo TAM TAL vehicles to our fleet for 2019.”
“I’m sure that our long-term partnership will continue to grow and we will continue to bolster our fleet with Talson vehicles,” he said.
“Talson vehicles are light and offer a wide range of loading options enabling us to better use the trailer capacity,” said Martens. “The result is less fuel and less CO2. Talson helps us to deliver on more environmentally-friendly solutions.”
“As Europe’s market leader air cargo semi-trailer manufacturer, we are offering high quality, innovative, reliable box range trailers for more than 35 years,” said Verdonschot.
“As Talson, we are aware that for air freight, time is precious and being fast during operations is essential. Our state of the art TAG TAL and TAM TAL are produced to outperform during loading and unloading.
“To offer maximum load safety, roller beds go down during driving. Additionally, our Air Cargo trailers can carry up to 4 ULDs.
“Manufactured by using a layered panel design of optimal grade aluminium and galvanised steel, TAG TAL, and TAM TAL provides security as standard. These functions can be enhanced with our Trailer Innovation Award winner Secure Box features for enhanced security.
“Additionally, those vehicles are provided with multi-functional, patented Talfix system with 10,000 holes that enables the operator to combine carriage-loading models in one trailer.
“Moreover, TAG TAL is equipped with concorde roof that ensures an maximum internal height of the trailer and Talson door that provides maximum strength at the rear and optimum load security and increases the durability of the trailer,” he said. “As Talson, we are determined to support Jan De Rijk Logistics during their operations in the coming period.”
