Kleijn Transport started in 1963 and has grown into a middle-sized company in these 50 years, with 125 employees and a new and modern vehicle fleet.
The company was originally a one-man business, with only one tractor! But within 5 years, the vehicle fleet had already expanded to 5 trucking trailers, that mainly transported steel and other raw materials within the Benelux.
In 1978, the business expanded further and moved to Hardinxveld, at only 30 kilometers distance from Rotterdam. For the first time, Kleijn had its own office, garage AND warehouse!
Just 3 years later, there was further room for growth: Kleijn settled in Sliedrecht. In Sliedrecht were both room and possibilities for innovation. No wonder that the expansion continued: in 1986 it was time for a new phase and Kleijn moved to Papendrecht, to a terrain of 8.600 m2. Our services and activities kept being extended and in 2004, Kleijn moved to Alblasserdam, where we’re currently still located: on Nieuwland Parc, that was newly built in 2004. Kleijn was the very first company to move there! Our move to Alblasserdam meant a huge step forward: our terrain tripled in size, to 40.000 m2, and we acquired a modern warehouse of 5.000 m2 with customs facilities, racks with 3000 pallet spaces, 7 loading docks and 2 cranes with a total lifting capacity of 32 tons.
We offer a wide variety of possibilities regarding both warehousing and transportation – we’re very proud to be able to provide our customers with all-in-one service!
