Tailormade Logistics and Van Hove & Co join forces

Tailormade Logistics (TML) and Van Hove & Co, both well-known Ghent transport companies and worldwide coverage, located a stone's throw from each other, today announce that they will be working together.

Expert in regional and jockey transport

Frank Van Hove, Managing Director at Van Hove & Co: "Van Hove has always concentrated on regional transport, especially with mega-trailers, and jockey transport (driving new trucks to their destination).

Thanks to these specialisations, Van Hove & Co has grown into a healthy and successful company."



"The world is always changing and customers' demands and expectations are becoming increasingly complex," continues Frank Van Hove.

"In quarter 2 of 2023, we will commission our first 2 electric trucks for local JIT transports in the port of Ghent.

Such innovative drive systems are a revolution for our sector, but also require large investments."

"For continued digitalisation, keeping a sustainability and personnel policy up-to-date... you also need sufficient scale.

The cooperation with Tailormade Logistics allows us to strengthen ourselves in all these areas."

"TML is a local player with an international network and is familiar with many of our activities. A collaboration with Tailormade Logistics was therefore an obvious choice."


Bert Vandecaveye, founder of TML:"We obviously know each other well. Van Hove has been active since the late 1970s and became a specialist in the automotive sector.

The DNA of Tailormade Logistics and Van Hove & Co matches: listening to the customer, being flexible in response to requests, great attention to quality (ISO 9001) and sustainability (ISO 14001), ... are all things both companies excel in. 


Van Hove & Co continues to operate as an independent business unit within the TML Group's Automotive business unit.

Van Hove has a 24,000 m² site in Ghent, with secure parking for trucks and trailers, facilities for drivers, truck-wash, garage and petrol station.

The fleet of 120 trailers and 35 tractors will be further expanded.
