Bulk transport specialist Hoyer has taken over the bulk liquid division of Dutch logistics company De Rijke.
HOYER is taking on all 240 employees of De Rijke at its five European offices: Göteborg in Sweden, Preston Brook in Great Britain, Moerdijk in the Netherlands, Le Havre in France and Piacenza in Italy. The deal also brings with it 1,500 tanker containers, 130 tractors and 300 tanker trailers and chassis.
“De Rijke’s portfolio is an ideal match for Hoyer’s growth strategy,” said Günter-Friedrich Maas, head of the Chemilog business unit at Hoyer, explaining the takeover. “We will be gaining market share, particularly in our relations to and from Great Britain, Scandinavia and Italy.”
