What is the history of KLG?

Entrepreneurship, growth and trust are the solid foundation of our organization. These qualities have been at the heart of our organization since it was founded in 1918.
KLG Europe was founded in 1918 as CS Kuijken Transport in Luyksgestel (NL), by the Kuijken family. We transported goods on behalf of third parties with some trucks of our own fleet. Shortly after the Second World War (1947) we started providing the first international transport, under the name of Kuijken Transport. During the eighties we made a decision, which was an unusual step at the time, to specialize in two sub-markets, 1) container transport and 2) groupage transport France. In 2005 we changed our name to KLG Europe (Kuijken Logistics Group Europe). This with a view to the growth of our international character and the variety of our many different logistics services. In 2006 we opened six of our own branches in Romania and the following year we opened our own branches in China. We have set up the joined venture NSWL (New Silk Way Logistics) in 2016, which provides the unique door-to-door rail services, rail transport from China to Europe and vice versa. In the year 2019, Sinotrans Ltd. took over all European branches of KLG. This is due to the lack of successors in the Kuijken family. In the search for a suitable party, preserving the culture and the norms and values of the organization was one of the most important elements. A strong party that could continue and expand the activities of KLG Europe was the other important element.
In 2021, we have 15 branches spread over the Netherlands (3), the United Kingdom (1) and Romania (8), and a trucking division under the flag of KLG Trucking. We are member and shareholder of the groupage network 24plus and of the distribution network ASTRE.
