About Us

Van Ravenhorst, over 100 years your specialist in efficient logistics.

Van Ravenhorst has over 100 years experience as a bodybuilder. And just as long we are specialists in the field of efficient logistics. Customers see us as a committed partner who likes to come up with innovative solutions. In that respect are not only a manufacturer, but also a creator of bodies.

We realize ourselves that the transport is a link in the chain. Changes in the industry will lead to changes in transport like in the case of the introduction of modules instead of crates for poultry transport. Faced with this situation new requirements for loading systems or ventilation arise. We respond to this with new systems and flexible solutions that can also be retrofitted to an existing truck or trailer.
Our engineers are both creative and innovative. They apply modern technologies to improve the efficiency and quality of transport. Examples of these are our modern climate control systems, the disinfection systems and multiple loading floors. At the same time these solutions are innovative. Through small adjustments and alternative solutions our engineers create just the extra bit of loading space or finishing that we are known for. On top of that we cooperate closely with a number of international suppliers that guarantee various specialized solutions.
Our engineers and mechanics sign for maximum service. This all starts with a customized design.. After the construction and delivery are mechanics remain stand-by for maintenance and in case necessary repairs on a 24-7 basis. We know the importance of the continuity of your transport. For this reason we have equipped a complete service department that operates fast and flexible.

We would like to introduce the team to you. These people will always be there for you!
