Van Duuren’s demand for transport is growing: ‘We’re driving more and more’.

Imports from Italy and Spain are increasing again, Jeroen van Duuren notes. “Transport to these countries has come to a complete standstill on rush rides. Now we see that demand has increased again by ten percent in a week’s time. There is air coming and that is good for our business relations, our partners and of course for ourselves”. Transport to Germany and the Scandinavian countries has been less affected, but is also picking up again.
Van Duuren has always remained fully operational during the corona crisis, with due observance of the hygiene measures, of course. Jeroen van Duuren: “As soon as the situation allows, we are ready to bring the service to the old level as quickly as possible. I compliment our employees on this from the bottom of my heart. The adaptability of our people is really great. From home and from the office, they do everything in their power to offer our clients the service they are used to from us”.

No signed CMRs because of the Corona virus

The health of the drivers must be monitored. Contact with recipients must therefore be kept to a minimum. Transferring the PDA (the hand terminal on which is signed) to the receiver is a major risk. Especially because the customer has to put his finger on it. Read more

Regarding the new instructions of the Italian government, all public offices, bars, restaurants, shops, shopping malls, hotels etc. must be closed for the next two weeks with immediate effect; only a few shops can remain open, including supermarkets and pharmacies.
Given that only manufacturing companies will remain active, these are the only deliveries we can organize. We therefore invite you to only load shipments in these categories. Read more
