At the end of the 1960s, the Doorenbos, Veenstra, and Wiersma families joined forces when a local factory in the city of Bolsward, The Netherlands, asked them to invest in bulk milk pickup transportation. Today, our bulk milk pickup tankers are on the road 365 days a year, picking up 4,000 tonnes of raw milk at 1,500 dairy farmers for FrieslandCampina.
It is safe to say that, with over 50 years of experience, we have extensive knowledge in picking up bulk milk. The collection, sampling, and distribution is a non-stop 24/7 operation. Our 75 highly skilled and experienced drivers and 21 tankers provide to 8 factories of FrieslandCampina. We have a one-stop-shop concept: We take care of the whole process from assignments and planning to execution. Our customers can rely on us that everything is taken care of.
Our high number of carriers in a close-knit network makes us extremely flexible when necessary. Because of our central management system, we can quickly adjust the routing and thus adjust pickup and delivery times. You can rest assured that your milk will always be picked up. Our drivers are highly skilled and experienced and capable to anticipate and accommodate changes in the field during their shift. We go beyond flexibility: our mobile pump can pump products into theat factories as well as pumping the milk from one tank pickup into another in case a tank gets stranded because of, for example, an accident.
Every dairy farmer has their own demands and wishes. We are not only aware of all demands and wishes in the field, we actually use them as a basis for our IT-systems. That’s why we are the only carrier for FrieslandCampina who has its own database. We use it to achieve the best results and to perform the best possible way. We custom- and time deliver to factories in accordance with tight schedules and work with the latest techniques. Data communication happens via board computers with customized software. Because of this, our communication and software are completely accustomed to bulk milk pickup, making us the stable yet flexible party for both you, as our customer, as well as dairy farmers.
