GIANTS ON THE ROAD Desutter Group NOOTEBOOM IS NOT JUST A SUPPLIER BUT A PARTNER DESUTTER GROUP FROM HARELBEKE (B) COMBINES THE ACTIVITIES OF THREE COMPANIES THAT ARE ACTIVE IN CRANE HIRE, TIPPER TRANSPORT AND ABNORMAL TRANSPORT. BROTHERS JAN AND FREDERIK DESUTTER TALK ENTHUSIASTICALLY ABOUT THE HISTORY, FROM THE START OF DESTRANS IN 1996 TO THE PLANS FOR THE COMING YEARS. JAN DESUTTER: “WE HAVE HAD A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH NOOTEBOOM FOR YEARS. THE QUALITY – OF THE TRAILERS AS WELL AS THE SERVICE – IS EXCELLENT. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE AFTER TOO: WHAT SETS US APART IS QUALITY AND PROFESSIONALISM. COINCIDENTALLY WE HAVE SOMETHING ELSE IN COMMON WITH NOOTEBOOM: OUR HOUSE COLOUR RED IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS ‘NOOTEBOOM-RED’.” 10
