Freight Line Europe was founded in 2007 by its current owner Chris Hans van der Hout. During those early days the main focus of the Company was on the transportation of part and full loads of fruit and vegetables to and from Great Britain. Since those early days a lot has changed and Freight Line Europe has become for many clients a reliable logistics partner for temperature controlled solutions to and from Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and of course Great Britain. Freight Line Europe entered a new chapter at the beginning of 2020 with the opening of our state of the art facility at Maasdijk. This has also given us the opportunity to expand our services which include temperature controlled storage facilities, cross docking for third parties, truck wash facility as well as customs formalities.
Due to the continuous growth it was necessary to look for alternative housing facilities. Eventually this was found at the ultramodern estate of Honderdland 2 Maasdijk, which is closely located to the port of Rotterdam and the A20 motorway. These were important motives to choose for the move from Westerlee to Maasdijk and was completed at the beginning of 2020. We feel certain that this move has prepared us for a bright future !
Freight Line Europe also has offices in Felixstowe, Suffolk (Great Britain) and Cheb (Czech Republic) as well as partner facilities in northern France, Paris and Lyon (France).
Since the beginning of 2020 our state of the art cross dock and storage facility at Maasdijk opened its doors. At this facility we have 5500 m2 of temperature controlled environment available for the short or long term storage of your goods. Also additional office space would be available if required.
Characteristic for Freight Line Europe is the unconditional dedication of the company and its employees towards our clients. Our reply to any logistical challenge therefore will be : YES WE CAN. This attitude is being appreciated by our clients and has been a key factor in becoming a major player in temperature controlled logistics to Great Britain, France and the Czech Republic. With the start of Freight Forwarding Europe in 2018, the company has expanded its playing field to other European countries like i.e. Italy, Spain and even Northern Africa.
All these activities are aimed at one goal and one goal only: to continue supplying an efficiënt, flexible and reliable service for our clients. This was the philosophy when Chris Hans van der Hout started the company in 2007 and it remains our philosophy upon entering the third decade of the 21st century.
