Tieleman transport has been a familiar name for more than a hundred years
Tieleman Transport from Kloosterzande in the south of the Netherlands has a fleet of 75 trucks and 30.000 m3 of warehouse storage with which they serve their customers in the logistics sector. The transport is mainly aimed at the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
Tieleman Transport is a real family business, Alphons Tieleman started in 1922 from the Kloosterstraat in Kloosterzande, then still with horse and carriage. Alphons had four children who later took over the business. The Tielemannetjes had a vision and obtained a permit to load in East Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. In 1953 a scheduled service company was started between Rotterdam and East Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. The years that followed were used to further develop and expand the region. Alphons' five grandchildren, who were also in the company by now, took over the business. By then the company had already moved to the Oudeweg in Kloosterzande. In 1980, Rudie succeeded his father Jo Tieleman as director.
Despite the fact that there are still many real Tielemans working in the company, someone with a different name is now at the head of the table. Bart Broeksteeg succeeds Rudie, who has been working at the company for 49 years now. Rudie will remain involved as an advisor and occasionally you will also see him on the truck. The company is big, but the family feeling has remained.
In 2022, Tieleman Transport celebrated its 100th anniversary. The new name with accompanying logo was introduced at the 100th anniversary, Tieleman Logistics. For the 100th anniversary, WSI was allowed to make three jubilee models in the “old” colours. This series consists of a DAF XF Space Cab 4x2 with bulk trailer, a Scania R Highline CR20H 4x2 with curtainsider trailer and a Volvo FH 4 Globetrotter 6x2 box truck combi with sliding side. These models are exclusively made for Tieleman Logistics and can be ordered via email@example.com
After the success of these three beautiful models, we are now going to make a real Tieleman classic, the well-known Scania 114 - 380 4x2 with flat roof and tarpaulin construction with the old school 3 axle double air trailer. This truck had a characteristic structure like more trucks from the Zeeuws-Vlaanderen region. Below is a sneak preview.
