Modern and efficient
We want to be the most valued logistics service provider. That's why we always use the best equipment. At AB Texel, we think that goes without saying. We invest in modern, fuel-efficient equipment from premium brands, such as trucks with Euro-6 engines. We also provide top-notch maintenance. This avoids unnecessary downtime and delays and means that you, our client, won’t be faced with any unpleasant surprises.
In addition to quality we offer capacity, with a large fleet and extensive network. With a fleet of more than 1,700 trucks and 2,800 trailers, we’re able to organise our journeys efficiently and scale up and down as needed. Even at peak times in the season This means that we are always able to meet our clients’ needs.
Automation and maximum peace of mind
Our trucks and trailers are equipped with up-to-date technology. Such as the latest on-board computers. Clients can send orders from their own ERP system to our transport management system (TMS) using customised links. Our drivers receive the orders from the TMS on their on-board computers.
After unloading, the client can access the consignment note almost immediately, even without a direct link to our system. These automated processes bring us ever closer to our aim of taking care of the client’s concerns from A to Z.
Investing in sustainability is another of our priorities. For example, the majority of our trucks are equipped with cleaner Euro-6 engines, and some run on LNG. We are also involved in initiatives for cleaner fuels. We employ our own driving style coaches, who train our drivers to drive more economically. They do this by analysing driving style data from the on-board computers. AB’s driving style coaches go out on the road with our drivers so that they can immediately apply the tips in practice.
We also constantly work on damage prevention, because prevention is obviously better than repair. While this is true of damage to equipment, much more importantly it means that our drivers can do their work safely.
Trailers for every agri and food product
Every product has its own way of loading and unloading. That's why we have specific trailers for each product group:

Trailers of the future
At AB Texel, we are realistic. We believe there is always room for improvement. That’s why we work with our suppliers to develop trailers that are even better when it comes to efficiency, food safety and the environment.
