Van Vlastuin Agro was founded in 1982 by H. van Vlastuin. In that year he started an agricultural contracting company and carried out work for third parties.
Van Vlastuin Agro has specialised in the transport of bulk goods since 1995. Even in the early stages, the focus came to be on agricultural products and raw materials for animal feed. From the beginning, our company looked for innovative solutions to make transport more efficient, flexible and sustainable.
For example, in 1998, we started using so-called walking floor semi-trailers. These are equipped with a horizontal unloading system, which means that higher volumes can be transported. Up to approx. 95 cubic metres! It is also possible to transport entire loads of pallets and big bags.
70 people work at Van Vlastuin Agro, including seven employees at the corporate office in Ede. Our company has its own workshop, weighbridge and washing facility and can therefore operate with maximum flexibility.
‘We do it right or we don’t do it at all.’ Van Vlastuin Agro puts this slogan into practice on a daily basis. We are a driven family business. Our committed employees are always looking to improve the service. For example, our automated processes are at a high level and we have transport combinations that, due to lower weight, can transport more cargo. When it comes to our services, reliability and correctness are paramount.
Our motto? Yes means yes, and a deal is a deal. The combination of committed service and efficiency in execution is what gives our customers added value.
As a specialist in the transport of organic raw materials, Van Vlastuin Agro is focused on sustainability. Not only is the transport of these goods carried out according to clear protocols, we also take people and nature into account in our own business operations. An example is our ongoing search for ways to save on fuel consumption. Our trucks are equipped with Euro-6 engines, and by deliberately making our equipment lighter, we can transport more cargo per shipment. This is beneficial both financially and in terms of environmental savings.
Van Vlastuin Agro was founded in 1982 by H. van Vlastuin. In that year he started an agricultural contracting company and carried out work for third parties. This involved sowing, ploughing, chopping and groundwork. In 1988 the service was expanded to include transport. A first truck was purchased, soon followed by multiple transport units. In 1991, the cross-border licence was granted and the operating area expanded to an international scale. Because bulk goods quickly became an area of expertise, the first tippers were purchased in 1993. Since 1995, the transport of bulk goods – mainly agricultural products, raw materials for animal feed and peat – has been the focus. As of 1998, the transport fleet was expanded to include walking floor semi-trailers. Van Vlastuin Agro has been GMP certified for many years now. We are strongly focused on transporting agricultural goods products for human consumption, including cocoa, rice, spelt, etc.
