When ambition meets ambition

Contraload is responding to two major trends that perfectly fit with our platform's strategy: sustainability and efficient logistics. The company also provides an answer to increasingly stringent hygiene standards. Seeing a company that combines sustainability and efficient logistics on the one hand, and the willingness to strengthen its position as market leader on the other, we feel Contraload is a perfect fit with the strategy of our Sustainable Cities platform.

Together, we build a leading company

With our expertise and shared ambition, we want to contribute to further international expansion and offer new services in new sectors through organic growth and acquisitions.
