Janssen was founded in 1877 under the name Janssenbooten. In those days, transport was done solely by ship and by horse and cart. The company quickly developed into one of the larger-sized carriers in the Netherlands. Given the increasing popularity of truck transport at the beginning of the twentieth century, the company added this component to its services and changed its name to Janssenauto’s.

As the years passed, the quality of the infrastructure as well as the logistic issues changed. Production companies started focusing on their core business and began outsourcing other activities. Not Janssen! Instead, we saw this as an opportunity to add services to our range. Our next step was to set up our warehousing department. Several tailor-made solutions in a single public warehouse quickly developed into a successful part of the business.

This also applies to our Value Added Services (VAS) department, which provides assembly, repairs, and configuration of goods. As the employees work under one roof with colleagues from the logistics department, the goods can be delivered quickly and efficiently from and to this technical workshop. In addition to its technical area, VAS has a department for printing, mailing, and serial high-volume fulfilment.

Janssen - History

In the first decade of this century, a department was set up to specialize in service deliveries. In addition to the delivery, goods can also be installed at their destination and customers are given instructions on how to use appliances. Goods can also be uninstalled or other services provided, where required. Trained professionals represent our client to the end customers. They are accustomed to carrying out their services on customers’ premises, in both B2B and B2C markets.


Internationalization ensures the continuing growth in international traffic. Due to the many intermodal opportunities via seaports, airports, and railway stations, our specialists are active in various European locations such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Brussels. In Asia, Janssen is represented by locations in China and Vietnam from where air and sea freight shipments are sent to destinations worldwide.

Software plays a very important part in all our business units. For Parcel Management, we have invested in an advanced system that creates labels for millions of parcels a year, enables us to manage parcel carriers, and allows our team to carefully monitor the status of the deliveries. Large volumes produce purchasing power. We take a neutral approach and select the right carrier for your goods based on quality and costs.
