On the night of Thursday 11 May we also want to – informally – celebrate our 135th anniversary and the fact that Dick Nooteboom has been with Nooteboom for 50 years.  These are important milestones again in the history of Nooteboom. While you enjoy a drink, snack and fine entertainment there will also be plenty of opportunities to chat with colleagues from the industry.

Nooteboom shuttle train

On Thursday and Friday we run a Shuttle Service through our factory. There will be several of these Shuttle Services through our factory and during the tour there will be commentary in various languages. Among other things we highlight the production of the groundbreaking Manoovr semi low-loader for which Nooteboom has already won several international awards. We also explain the extremely efficient manufacture of the trailers in the SMART programme and you will also be shown our facilities and expertise regarding maintenance, service, damage repairs, refurbishment and parts. In short, a fascinating tour that allows you to take look behind the scenes of the dynamic world of Nooteboom Trailers.


Throughout the day the Nooteboom demo team will carry out demonstrations with various vehicles. See the easy operation of our vehicles, the tremendous manoeuvrability, the straightforward changing of an inside wheel of a pendle axle vehicle or the extension of low-loaders to a huge length. These are just a few examples of what you may expect on this day of our demo team.

nieuwe trailers

During the Transport Days we will present a large variety of special trailers, both new and used.  In addition to dozens of new vehicles (some of which carry a specific load) there are also around 50 used vehicles of various makes on display.


On Thursday 11 May at16.00 hrs a seminar will be held with as its theme ‘Innovation in the logistics sector’. The renowned trend watcher and futurist Richard van Hooijdonk will take you to an inspiring future where living, working and running a business will be completely different.  Due to the international character of the Nooteboom Transport Days this dynamic seminar will be held in English.


Throughout the day on Friday 12 May several workshops will be held with various sector-specific themes. The focus will be on sectors such as Wind energy, Cranes and Construction machinery.
