The formerly Dutch-based live events logistics company, whose customers include ID&T and Cirque du Soleil, plans to double its number of Romanian drivers this year
By IQ on 28 Jan 2016
Saan Trucking has moved its head office from the Netherlands to Romania.
The company, which specialises in bespoke transport solutions for the live entertainment industry, identified an opportunity to expand its business with a new group of trucks and drivers.
“The demand to support live entertainment productions with the right transport solution grows each year,” explains Rutger Alferink, Saan Trucking’s president. “We think that, given the fact that matching budgets has become a bigger part of the RFP/selection process, we can offer the best service for the best price.”
Rogier Lecluse, Saan Trucking’s operations manager, continues: “After a period of intensive training, the first group of Romanian drivers have been on the road for six months, and we plan to almost double their numbers this year. All the new drivers speak English and will form a team led by our Dutch drivers.”
Looking to the year ahead, Saan Trucking expects to sign “a few medium and large international tours”
The formerly Dutch-based company counts Cirque du Soleil, ID&T/SFX, a number of orchestras (including the Bolshoi Theatre Symphony Orchestra) and the Volvo Ocean Race among its clients.
Looking to the year ahead, Saan Trucking expects to sign “a few medium and large-size international tours” in 2016. Lecluse notes that the company still has some capacity left in the summer months.
Saan Trucking renewed its website earlier this year.
