In two years time, Transport Th. Wouters experienced a substantial increase in turnover thanks to the switch to more night transport and inland shipping.
Trans-Continental Logistics (TCL). For this logistics service provider with a total of 90,000 m² of covered warehouse storage in the port of Antwerp, Transport Th. Wouters provides transportation support.
“In 2018, we decided to focus on the modal shift and night transport. Since then, we have seen an organic turnover growth of 60%, which we want to consolidate by continuing on the path we have taken.” says Karl Garmyn, director at Th. Wouters.
The company is also focusing more on night transport, expanding its fleet from 26 to 32 trucks. Today, half of the trucks are also used at night. “In this way, we avoid traffic jams at the container terminals and on the Antwerp Ring during the day. At the same time, however, the expansion meant more administration. For example, the dispatcher has to allocate more import or export containers to a free chassis and make the journey ready for the drivers in their planning module. We are catching up with new technology,” adds Garmyn.
