Xwift acquires Demolans Logistics
De Putter & Co realizes the acquisition of Demolans Logistics by Xwift, which strengthens its position in the express and dedicated transport sector in addition to warehousing, general cargo, refrigerated and ADR transport.
The acquisition is part of Xwift's "buy-and-build" strategy in which De Putter & Co puts its extensive experience within transportation at the service of targeting potential candidates, thus contributing to Xwift's growth strategy of becoming a top 10 player in Belgium.
In 20 years, Pieter Denys built Xwift, headquartered in Nazareth, into a group with +300 employees and a turnover of 35 million euros.
The shared passion for quality and customer focus led Xwift to choose Demolans Logistics. Partly because of this joining of forces, the two companies are offered the opportunity to work together and develop innovative solutions to meet the significant challenges in the transportation sector and respond to the rapidly changing needs of the market.
Demolans Logistics, based in Mouscron, was founded in 1990 by Geert Lanssens and has built a strong reputation in the transport industry over the years. The company is specialized in 24h express service for freight of 1-24 tons across Europe.
Customer: Xwift and Demolans Logistics
