Family Business Since 1924: From Single Line Service to Complete Logistics Services

Transport Jos Schreurs,
Provider of Physical Distribution and Warehousing
in the Benelux and Northern France.

Who Are We. A Brief History.

In 1924, Joseph C.H. Schreurs started his moving and transport company with a Ford T on which he constructed a loading platform himself. Later, in 1946, he, along with his sons Paul, Gaston, and Roger, started a family business. The company used both buses and trucks for relocations and furniture transport.

The first steps in logistics were taken in 1958 with the construction of a warehouse of 1500 m². The first transports between the Antwerp harbor and the warehouse were established. Trucks departed daily, delivering goods to wholesalers, pharmacies, and grocery stores in Belgium and Luxembourg.

In addition to the groupage network in Belgium, starting from 1965 (now Schreurs n.v.), scheduled services were established to France and Germany. Trucks loaded goods again, destined for either our warehouse or the customers. The central location in Wilrijk moved from the city center to the Terbekehof industrial park in 1974.

In 1991, Bob Schreurs, Joseph’s grandson, took over the business, ensuring the continued modernization of logistics services. The company expanded further and relocated in 2003 to the A12/Schelle location. The fourth generation immediately joined the team.

Over the years, Transport Jos Schreurs has evolved into a modern logistics service provider, emphasizing service, efficiency, and flexibility. Due to continuous expansion, a move in 2022 to a larger location in Niel (Industrial Park “The Green”) became necessary, ensuring even better service.

Our Core Business. Efficiency First.

Logistically, our up-to-date storage spaces with fully automated processes are easily accessible for goods via road transport.

For event and theater transport to any destination in Europe, we are the right partner in the general transport sector.

Our transports are carried out by skilled and motivated drivers, all possessing the required qualifications. Good information and communication ensure excellent service, including tracking & tracing and real-time registration of driver and trip data to optimize our services.
