Strategic partnership between International Road Ferry B.V. & Boekestijn Transport Service started with Boekestijn acquiring the Polish trucking activities from IRF.

“Both our companies have a strategy of focus on their core business. IRF strengthened their focus on shipments to & from the UK, something we are known for in the market, and have proven our high performance for over 30 years. With Boekestijn Transport Service we found a partner which is focused on providing trucking capacity. Both of us follow a strategy on the long term and sustainable solutions, which makes this a great match” according to Antoine Ligtvoet, CEO IRF. Boekestijn Transport will provide IRF with a capacity of 30 to 40 trucks on a permanent basis.

Quoting Peter Boekestijn, CEO Boekestijn Transport Service, “Sharing the same principle of continuous improvement in our day to day operations guided by a sustainable approach, gave us a good feeling from start. Digital integration to the highest level aligns the workflow of both organizations and will bring efficiency by optimizing route planning, which in turn results in less empty kilometers and thus less emissions. “Both companies will continue their ambitious growth based on these strong fundamentals.

“We have built up experience in the ferry traffic over the last 10 years and build strong partnerships. Our 750+ trucks are daily supporting our partners fulfilling their promises. Taking over IRF’s trucking activities in Poland increases our synergies with an increasing fleet. This allows us to be more flexible for our partners and continue supporting them with first class trucking service any time of year. International Road Ferry B.V. can increase focus on their main business, at which they have proven outstanding performance and we will ensure their trucking capacity in all seasons.” Said Sjef Boekestijn, COO Boekestijn Transport Service.

Boekestijn Timeline

Questions? We have your answers.

How do you transport High Value Loads?

All high value loads are transported under strict internal policies. It is standard working practice to have panic buttons, electro locking systems on our trailers, motion sensors, acoustic alarms, predefined routing and in-house 24/7 monitoring.

Can I transport commodities at different temperatures in the one truck?

Multi Temperature means that you can divide your loading space into several temperature compartments with a different temperature range in each part - For example: The first half of the trailer is set up for 2-8 degrees, we put a wall in between, so the other half can be set up for 15-25 degrees
