FAMILY CONCERN WIJSEN LOGISTICS
AND THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTED
Almost 60 years ago Wiel Wijsen started in Gulpen stocking up the dairy farmers from the local dairy factory. This dairy was delivered in the very early morning and thus this young entrepreneur had the opportunity to deploy his truck during the afternoon hours for the transport of other agricultural products. And with great success! It was the start of a local transport firm that has become today’s ‘Wijsen Logistics’ company. The milk has disappeared from our product offering, but our service level and prompt service provision still are like old times.
And not only the second generation of the Wijsen family works with passion and enthusiasm at the firm. There are several drivers whose fathers and grand-fathers are or have been driving for Wijsen. This illustrates the great atmosphere within the company. The unique individuality of the Wijsen family concern; loyalty towards each other, operational management focused on continuity, punctuality, dedication, involvement and correct manners, are all highly appreciated by the employees at Wijsen. Caring, service-oriented and flexibility are in the DNA of the entire team at Wijsen. Which is precisely the basis for the customer relation. Based on trust and personal contact long-term and close relations have been developed between customers and the company in the course of time. Customers appreciate the high service level and the honest price-quality ratio. This makes them proud at Wijsen!
