Jonkers Bouwmetaal on shipping with Quicargo



Jonkers Bouwmetaal is a Dutch company that has been active in the construction sector ever since 1986.

The company of founder Frederik Jonkers distinguishes itself through a combination of high-quality products and excellent services.

Jonkers Bouwmetaal has contributed to many well-known Dutch building projects. Think of the construction of the Zeist Triodos Bank, the construction of the Amsterdam Olympic 1962 and the completion of the Breda ING.


Flexibility concerning orders

Jonkers Bouwmetaal likes to work with fixed carriers. However, they also want to have the option to request last-minute shipments.

Thanks to the large network of carriers from Quicargo, this is very well possible. For example, Jonkers has a regular carrier, but other carriers occasionally drive for the company as well.

In addition, with construction transport, it is very convenient if you can easily use certain options for shipments, such as:

- Time restrictions for pick-up and delivery

- Tailgate

- Mounted forklift transport

- Side loading

- Trailer or truck

All these options are easy to book when placing an order. This is a big advantage when working with a one-stop-shop like Quicargo.

“Distribution and groupage transport is easy to arrange via Quicargo. Furthermore, it is nice to have a permanent contact person. This makes communication very smooth and pleasant.”

Perfect for a shipper in the construction industry who needs a lot of transport in the Netherlands. With shipments from Limburg to Groningen and from Noord-Holland to Overijssel, it is nice to have a good overview of your transport and logistics.
