Strong together

From the head office located in Nieuwe Tonge,  Visbeen is doing their utmost to release customers of any ‘transport burden’.  Day in, day out – 365 days a year- we optimize planning processes and bundle trade flows. Collaboration and keeping control is the way to create a sustainable European transport and to save costs at the same time.

Our core values ​​are:

  • Transparency
  • Collaboration
  • Reliability
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Continuity

Together,
Smarter and Cleaner

Visbeen aims to make a strategic cooperation between shippers and customers of fresh and frozen products in a multi-modal logistics network. In this complex network Visbeen acts as the director. From the Cross Chain Control Centre, Visbeen is able to fully coordinate and direct your supply chain.

That concerns bundling and steering physical trade flows as well as information flows, financial flows and data management.

Visbeen has its own assets and has an international network of reliable and experienced partners. No matter what priority the customer has – sustainable, quick or affordable – we always present the optimal intermodal transport solution. In your supply chain we will allways look for multimodal solutions. Together, smarter and greener.

From T-Ford to
Control Centre

It is 1925, A. VISBEEN started as a haulier with his T Ford,. It is harvest time in the market gardening area of Nieuwe Tonge, in the province of South Holland. A . VISBEEN provides a unique solution to the growers in the region because in those days, no one had ever heard of a storage or a trans-shipment company. The harvest was stored in so-called storage wells.

A.Visbeen was transporting the harvest from one end of the country to the other to store the produce in these storage wells. Because all the equipment was requisitioned during the Second World War, the second VISBEEN generation had to start from the beginning again. The company flourished until it was struck by tragedy when in 1953 everything was destroyed by the disastrous floods.

Recovery began again with the provision of transport between the islands of South Holland and Zeeland, and towards the end of the 1950s transport began to and from the produce auctions in the Netherlands. It was at one of these auctions that the observant VISBEEN entrepreneur noticed another gap in the market. No one was providing consolidation and groupage services. VISBEEN started the first groupage service to England in 1965. Initially, produce in crates was grouped and loaded in customer delivery consignments later that became palletised.

In the 1990s the third VISBEEN generation worked on optimising processes and services. In order to guarantee continuity of services and in order to service a wider delivery network throughout Europe and the UK, partnerships were established. The partnership with DailyFresh Logistics dates from 1998 and with Coolboxx from 2006. This “partnership and strategic alliance” concept continues to be a core strategy and since 2012 Visbeen coordinates the logistic activities of a market leading customer Lamb Weston Meijer throughout Europe from its Control Centre.

CROSS CHAIN
CONTROL CENTER

From the Cross Chain Control Centre, Visbeen is able to fully coordinate and direct your supply chain.
This involves consolidating, planning and managing logistical flows as well as creating transparent information flows, financial flows and data management. Make Visbeen your central point of contact for operational and tactical logistics services in order to:

  • gain a more complete overview; better alignment and bundling of your activities.
  • save on supply chain costs by combining shipments.
  • decrease the environmental pressure.

CHAIN CONTROL
IN FRESH & FROZEN

The increasing demand for quality, speed and service, necessitated Visbeen and some other logistic service providers in 1998 to launch a new concept: DailyFresh Logistics. Ever since, we have joined forces with Post-Kogeko to carry vegetables and fruit on a daily basis into the UK market. In this concept the network, the knowledge, the facilities and experience are converged to create transport flows of part load and full load trucks of fresh products.

In 2013, Lamb Weston / Meijer entered into a strategic alliance with us for the distribution of its frozen and refrigerated products in the Benelux, Great Britain, France, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Andorra and Scandinavia.

Meanwhile Visbeen is active throughout Europe with its multi-modal services for refrigerated and frozen products.

THINKING OUT OF
THE BOX
(INTERMODAL)

Because we believe in thinking differently, Visbeen continually looks for an innovative range of logistic concepts. And we have to – after all, the world around us is changing continually. The available information is growing, the demand for sustainable solutions is increasing to an ambitious level and the safety aspects have converted from request into requirement.

Transport Solutions

Busy European roads are a fact, while demand for transport is on the increase. Our unique huckepack P400 reefer trailers, with an internal height of 2.70 meters and a width of 2,50 meters, have a larger load capacity and the dimensions correspond with those of standard trailers on the European roads. Thanks to this multimodal approach, Visbeen combines transport by road, over water or by rail. This allows us to guarantee efficient transportation of temperature-sensitive products. Additionally it reduces CO2 emissions, unburdens the road network and increases transport flexibility. We supply transport solutions with a future!

SUSTAINABLE

To Visbeen, quality also means caring for the environment. As logistic service provider we take our responsibility seriously. We continually invest in economical and sustainable equipment and facilities. This is why we are collaborating with our partners in the chain to achieve socially responsible objectives. We share our knowledge and experience with other parties. We also request our suppliers to make effort to improve the balance between people and the environment.

Visbeen's Solutions

  • Reliable:
    ‘Keep your promises!’

    ‘Because we care’ is our motto and one of the reasons why we have existed for as long as 90 years.

  • Experience
    in conditioned transport

    Visbeen’s activities are practically limited to conditioned transport. Particularly fresh products, frozen products or a combination in the same shipment.

  • Accessibility

    Our entire fleet is equipped with Track & Trace equipment. We follow our cargo continuously in order to ensure unloading in due course.
    Customers are immediately informed in case of an incident.

  • Corporate
    Social Responsibility

    Be Lean, Be Green: Visbeen takes sustainability in logistics seriously. We optimise load rates, use modern equipment and new transport modalities.

  • Give and take
    with chain partners

    With over fifteen years of experience in partnerships, we understand that give and take is a pre-condition for the continuity of a partnership.

  • Control center

    Visbeen coordinates and directs the entire flow of goods, information, finance and data. The control center keeps the overview.

  • Intermodal

    Always looking for the smartest combination of transport by road, water and rail. Efficient, flexible and sustainable.

  • Open mind

    Visbeen is always open to new ideas and developments.

“In 2011 we chose Visbeen as strategic partner for our road and multi modal transport. By entering into a multiple year agreement and thus being able to create the Cross Chain Control Center, for us the opportunity arose to serve the European market through a single point of contact in consolidated flows. We also have access to a multi modal platform, which enables us to bring our frozen goods to our customers in the most efficient way. For us, reliability and service are key in achieving our strategic goals, as well as transparency in cooperation. All these aspects are met in our partnership with Visbeen, because they care.”

Remco van Nieuwenhoven, Lamb Weston Meijer

“Dawn Foods required an efficient solution for frozen distribution providing high quality, with the capability of a speedy throughput to meet their customers’ demands across Europe. Via their Chain Control Center, Visbeen is serving Dawn’s needs very well since 2013. They’re clear in what they promise and act accordingly or even better, very much equal to Dawn’s own slogan: ‘Under promise, over deliver’. Visbeen does have a real ‘can do’ mentality and customer orientated mind set. Because of this they differentiate themselves considerably from other logistic providers. They’re always thinking in solutions instead of problems. Visbeen: because they truly care!”

Helco Sala, Dawn Foods

“With its European network of cold storage warehouses, Partner Logistics is one of the largest logistics service providers for the frozen food industry. The services provided by Visbeen Transport and Partner Logistics fit seamlessly into each other, which enables us to collectively raise the Supply Chain of our customers to a higher level. Efficiency, sustainability and quality are values that Partner Logistics looks for in its partners, and these values are being more than fulfilled by Visbeen Transport. For high-quality distribution Partner Logistics therefore relies on the services of Visbeen.”

Eelco Schnabel, Partner Logistics

“Royal Mail has successfully worked with Visbeen Transport for over 10 years during which time they have consistently delivered a high quality service. They have always managed our account with the highest level of professionalism in terms of contract management, performance and flexibility. Their expert understanding and operation of the International Road market adds real value to Royal Mail and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”

Roy Brien, Royal Mail

“Deutsche Post has successfully worked with Visbeen Transport for years now. To ensure a great service to our customers every day, it’s important to closely work with a reliable partner like Visbeen. We realise that due to unpredictable fluctuations in volumes and short notice schedule changes we’re not always an easy customer. That’s all the more reason to appreciate the flexibility and willingness to co-operate that Visbeen has repeatedly shown. We look forward to continuing our solid and successful co-operation!”

Thorsten Sommer, Deutsche Post

“DailyFresh Logistics coordinates temperature-controlled logistic chains, thereby guaranteeing the delivery of fresh produce 52 weeks a year. Without Visbeen Transport, DailyFresh wouldn’t have been born in 1998. Sometimes numbers say more than words: a thriving family business of 90 years, which is a fantastic achievement. Thanks to this impressive family business DailyFresh is able to deliver quality service to its customers day in day out.

Pepijn Bekker, DailyFresh Logistics
