Piet Hoogendoorn, who doesn't know him and the former transport company? At the age of 18, he first got behind the wheel of one of his father's trucks - and so it happened. Between 1979 and 2020, Piet was at the helm of his own transport company, which eventually had sixteen trucks. All feature the unique blue color blend. One of them is the Scania 143 6x2 with 3-axle stone trailer, the last vehicle Piet drove, and is available for reservation starting today.
M.J. de Wilde's classic 1987 Scania 142 V8
Shortly after the turn of the century, in 1910 to be exact, M.J. de Wilde Transport was founded by Jan de Wilde. With one horse and wagon loads of fruit, vegetables and cattle were transported to markets in and around Westland. Some 12 years after its founding Jan de Wilde switched to a different type of horsepower, i.e. the horses were exchanged for the first car with a cargo box, a Chevrolet.

A true "golden oldie" is now available for reservation: Zurel
Until the mid-1990s, Zurel was one of the largest flower and plant importers and exporters. As the market leader in Germany, England, Austria, France, Denmark and Italy, the trucks of the proud owner-director Zurel could not be ignored. The prosperity that reigned within the export company at that time was explicitly reflected in the predominantly blue front wagons and trailers. The letters that formed the name 'Zurel' on the trucks were in fact covered in gold leaf.
