Netherlands-based logistics firm, Idealogistic Verhoeven, has expanded its fleet with a batch order of Talson TGM Secure Box trailers.
The company specialises in the transport of high value goods which demands the utmost in terms of safety and reliability.
Idealogistic Verhoeven has a fleet of approximately 200 trailers, all of which are maintained in-house to ensure that the high-value cargo reaches its customers in a safe and timely manner.
The company also has more than one hundred towing units as well as offices in eight different European countries. It services the East-West trade lane of central Europe.
The delivery of 10 new Talson TGM Secure Box trailers is a strong indication that Idealogistic Verhoeven is performing well.
Operations Manager, Louis Bardoel, estimates that 90 per cent of the company's trailer fleet comprises Talson trailers.
“Talson offers the most robust, strong and reliable trailer,” he said. “What counts for us is that thanks to the possibility of a double loading floor, we can take much more with us. This greatly benefits the efficiency of our work. Even when we work with a double loading floor, we never run into problems with permitted weights.
With Talson, Idealogistic Verhoeven has noted that the trailers last a long time.
“How long exactly can't be indicated, but 10 to 12 years for sure,” said Bardoel.
The trailers used by Idealogistic Verhoeven cover 130,000 to 230,000 kilometres a year, depending on whether they are single or double crews in the truck.
For the past 10 years Idealogistic has held the highest possible TAPA certificate. It also holds the TSR-I certificate as well as the FSR-A certificate for its buildings, where the company also manages storage for its customers.
“It is an ongoing reassurance for our customers when they receive confirmation from independent parties that their logistics service provider meets the highest achievable requirements, both at our storage facilities and on the road,” said Bardoel. “Talson is for us an indispensable factor in our logistics operation. One we can always rely on.”
