January 25 2023 Print This Article

DACHSER has acquired Transportgroep A. Müller B.V. (Müller), headquartered in Holten, the Netherlands. This acquisition includes the Dutch food logistics provider’s own extensive fleet. The two companies have agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The acquisition is subject to approval by the Dutch competition authorities.

Part of a family-owned holding company, Transportgroep A. Müller B.V. is active in the market under the name Müller Fresh Food Logistics. In 2021, the company’s 770 food logistics employees generated some EUR 90 million in revenue, making it one of the leading food logistics providers in the Netherlands. DACHSER has not, however, acquired Müller’s workshop business, which employs a further 80 people. Müller shareholders will continue to run the workshop business independently.

In the Netherlands, Müller operates five locations. As a full-service logistics provider, Müller offers transports and distribution in the ambient, fresh, and frozen food segments. The company’s portfolio also includes warehousing across all temperature ranges as well as customer-specific value-added services. Müller’s CEO, Jan-Peter Müller, will remain at the helm, supported by his trusted and proven management team.

“Müller has been a leader in the Dutch food logistics market for many years,” says Müller CEO Jan-Peter Müller. “As a part of DACHSER, we now have access not only to DACHSER’s food logistics network in Germany, but also to DACHSER’s European Food Network that serves 34 countries. This means we can offer our customers entirely new options. For Müller, the acquisition opens up considerable growth potential within a rapidly growing international family-owned company. This creates an excellent and reliable outlook, in particular for our employees.”
