In 1995, founder Karl S’Jegers decided to channel his boundless passion for freight transport into a strong Flemish company, with a strong focus on customer service . Although the main focus at that time was on the transport of sea containers, more and more types of goods were being transported on his vehicles, which led to the addition of the following: curtain trailers (FTL, LTL or groupage transport), tipping containers, moving floor trailers, tanker trucks and refrigerated trailers with temperature control.
Karl also inspired his family with his one truck mind and S’Jegers has thus developed into a genuine, dynamic family business, specialising in the safe and punctual transportation of various types of cargo.
In 2000, an increasingly pressing shortage of space became apparent. S’Jegers therefore decided to look for a new space for their vehicles and infrastructure. They are now located in the heart of the Vorst-Laakdal industrial park.. And yes… whoever moves in next door to a sports giant with the slogan Just Do It, better makes sure they can pull their freight! Well, that was no problem for this ambitious transport company. The necessary infrastructures and equipment were quickly put in place:
- a private, ultramodern garage and a technical area where the entire fleet can be serviced and repaired. Even third-party vehicles can be serviced and repaired there. The preparation of trucks for technical inspections and repairs is also carried out entirely in-house by our own team of around ten mechanics.
- extensive warehouses and depots (in Tessenderlo, Laakdal and Kallo) capable of storage and transhipment at a high level. Transport S’Jegers has a total storage area of 25,000 m² for both short and long term storage. Even storage in temporary or mobile warehouses is possible!
- offices that radiate customer friendliness and ambition.
- plenty of parking space (of course!) for the impressive S’Jegers fleet, consisting of about 300 tractors, 600 container chassis, 250 curtain trailers and 20 carriers for the transport of fresh or frozen food, equipped with portable generators called gensets. A fleet that, moreover, continues to grow. Surely investing in new equipment is the shopping spree for the entrepreneur? You can never have enough. That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for new multipurpose chassis, gensets, tipping container chassis, moving floors and combi-trailers.
Later, a private fumigation area was added to this extensive list of assets. At the Kallo depot, international freight can be prepared for their journey by undergoing heat treatment or chemical immersion to eliminate mould or vermin. Wooden pallets, stowage and packing materials can contain unwanted organisms and, in many countries, only cargo that has been carefully fumigated is accepted in order to prevent incidents or even disasters.
Today, Transport S’Jegers – being one of the largest container carriers in Belgium and a permanent partner of several large terminals and logistics companies – transports up to 150,000 sea containers (20, 40 and 45 feet) each year from the world ports of Antwerp, Zeebrugge and Rotterdam to the Benelux, France and Germany. But S’Jegers is also strongly represented in the rest of Europe, which is proved by the many types of goods that are transported daily, weekly, monthly and annually.
