International Transport Company Van de Kamp has been the partner in the field of (inter)national transport for over 90 years. With over 80 permanent employees, we form a close-knit family business. It is our passion to provide safe and reliable transport for our relations and to unburden them.
Welcome to our family!
Van de Kamp forms a close-knit family with our employees and our relations. We are proud that our family business has grown into a stable and reliable organization. Our drivers enjoy working for us and appreciate the family values as if it were their own company, which is great. Our drivers also speak their languages. Very easy if you drive throughout Europe.
Our family business consists of two divisions, the first being the Furniture Transport and Warehousing group.

Secondly, we consist of the group General cargo transport, in which we have Box Trailers, Coolers, Mega Tautliners, Walking Floor trailers and Volume Combinations.

Our 3 family values
#1 People First
We are not just talking about trucks and logistics. Above all, our business is about people and long-term relationships. We strive for common goals together with our colleagues, partners and customers.
#2 Let’s do this
We can talk what we want, but in the end something has to be done. And in one way or another: we take care of it. We always unburden our customers. They can count on that.
#3 We love furniture
We can only be excellent specialists in furniture logistics if we really know what we are doing. Our expertise is based on decades of experience, proven methods and even more; on the love for the product. That makes us unbeatable in what we do.
In the 1950s, this was linked to the rise of the furniture industry in our region, the Land of Maas and Waal. We have built up our right to exist in that period by transporting the produced furniture from the region to the many customers in the furniture industry.
In the meantime, this industry has largely disappeared from our environment. The disappearance of the direct market in the vicinity of our company has made our network bigger step by step. By sticking to the things we are good at, we have built up an ever-increasing customer base, both nationally and internationally. In fact, we have transferred the expertise from the past to the present, expanding and strengthening our position.
As a result of changes in Europe, such as the disappearance of borders, we are now a partner for large and small furniture manufacturers throughout Western Europe.
We specialize in the transport of semi-finished and finished products in the furniture industry by delivering on time, safely, efficiently and without further intermediate storage to the final destination of our customers. Transporting high-quality furniture without damage is an art in itself. The accumulated experiences from the past have been retained, secured and seamlessly transferred to the current generation of drivers, planners and warehouse employees. Our equipment is designed for the transport and handling of vulnerable products from this sector. Double loading floors in the trucks ensure high efficiency and the air-suspended vehicles ensure safe, damage-free transport. That has also become our trademark!
Our future lies in further expanding the experience of the past 90 years. Securing practical knowledge is becoming increasingly important in a changing world. Craftsmanship only survives when the care and quality are passed on to newer generations. Our current management faces the task of holding on to the standards and values of the transport profession for the furniture industry and general cargo transport, but must also continue to compete with neighboring countries and cheaper Eastern European colleague transporters. This requires further professionalization, even greater efficiency and further training of current and future employees.
The family values, which have been carefully built up, are and will remain the spearhead of the policy to be pursued. The informal atmosphere and the short lines in the organization that have led to the specific character of our company will have to be preserved for current and future generations.
Due to the disappearance of borders in Europe, our network has only grown and, in addition to being a specialist in the transport of furniture, we are now also a reliable transport partner for general cargo, refrigerated transport and groupage shipments to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. The groups “Furniture Transport” and “General Cargo Transport” are and will continue to operate strictly separate from each other in their own markets.
At van de Kamp, we believe it is important to completely unburden the customer. The best drivers with a lot of expertise and experience will be deployed for the transport of your cargo. Reliability and safety are of paramount importance to Van de Kamp. Would you like to know more about what we can do for you in the field of transport and completely unburden? Contact us!
Our company has its origins in the forage trade in the 1930s. The reed industry was an important economic source in the Land of Maas and Waal at that time.
With the collapse of this industry, the region was forced to develop new skills and the rise of the furniture industry owes its existence to that period. This development has provided opportunities for our company to become a stable transport partner for manufacturers and retailers in the furniture industry.
REINIER VAN DER LANDE SPEAKING
“A few years ago I discussed our idea to outsource all transport tasks with Joep van de Kamp”
These are the words of Reinier van der Lande, Operations Manager at Lande Group from Schijndel.
“Van de Kamp has been transporting our products to our customers for many years and we eventually realized that there was quite a bit of profit to be made if we started thinking about the entire concept of production, storage, logistics and transport”.
Van de Kamp has been active for 90 years as a transporter of furniture from renowned furniture manufacturers from the Netherlands and many other countries in Western Europe.
“We exchanged our joint knowledge and experience together, that ultimately resulted in a completely new idea. Everything that is now ready in our factories is collected from us in Schijndel and Lanaken by van de Kamp several times a day. Our production series are therefore larger and the conversion time losses have been greatly reduced, ”says Reinier van der Lande.
“Van de Kamp delivers a number of times a week to our end customers from their warehouses in Druten. This provides greater flexibility and reliability. We are both proud of what we have achieved and we see this model as an example to which open and close cooperation can lead ”.
“Yes, both parties are proud of this collaboration,” says Reinier van der Lande.
