Our passion for logistics, a forward looking company

How it all started

As Europe was healing from the wounds of the first World War in 1918, Cornelis Kuijken joined the European spirit of moving forward by founding Kuijken Transport in the Dutch town of Luyksgestel. At first, Kuijken Transport focused on domestic transport with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, only to expand to international transports in 1947. Joining in the new spirit of European cooperation, Kuijken transport promoted and benefited from closer relations within post-war Europe.

In the early 80’s, the company made further choices, by specializing into two distinct segments of the market: container transports and groupage consignments to France. At the time, it was perceived as a rather unusual move but as the history of the Kuijken family teaches us on thing, it is that nothing is gained without going beyond the ordinary.

Ten years later, the company was ready for several acquisitions. At first, V.T.E. BV in Venlo and Bradford were added, followed by Hessinex Group in Goirle and Kwinten Transport in Eersel. With the growth of the Rotterdam harbor, a Rotterdam branch was opened as to stimulate our pioneering work in container logistics.

Emergence in the wider world

In 2005, a name change to KLG Europe was instigated to represent global ambition. Our family continued to grow and in 2006, six new branches were established in Romania. In 2009, the idea of a joint venture in China emerged when the first branch was founded in Beijing, China. Following, branches in Hong Kong and Shanghai were added in 2013, officially creating our company.

China branch started out with just a single warehouse in Shanghai combined with a few small offices. Under excellent management and with the drive and passion of the Kuijken family, we expanded quickly to four warehouses and multiple locations in 2019 in China,  grew from a small business into a recognized specialist on European-Chinese trade and logistics.

Finally, in 2019, KLG Europe was acquired by Sinotrans.

About MOOV 

In 2020, the offices in China were officially rebranded as MOOV. Despite operating independently from our parent company, we maintain the same passion, drive, and pride that have always characterized our efforts. Additionally, MOOV is still owned by the Kuijken family, which has been involved in logistics for over 100 years.

Key to our history are entrepreneurship, growth, and confidence. Our deep knowledge and extensive experience, built on a solid foundation, allow us to continuously innovate and meet the logistical challenges of today and tomorrow. Our dynamic history has not only kept us moving but has also propelled us to expand into new areas. In 2022, we launched our strategic partnership with Tailwind, expanding our presence in the global market. That same year, we opened our Rotterdam office, which further strengthened our international network.
