about us

Stuurman has been providing international transport services with a high degree of flexibility since 1992. 'Can't' simply doesn't appear in our vocabulary. Saying no is something we rarely do. We have a huge fondness of France and its neighbouring countries. This truly is our home turf, we know every twist and turn. Every route.

About Stuurman

Stuurman is a very close-knit team. People who continue where others drop out as a result of many years of experience. Simply because the network we've managed to build up in the countries we're active in is unprecedentedly large and efficient. And our customers certainly benefit from that. Every single day of the week.


The product groups we specifically focus on are refrigerated and frozen, dry goods, express and exceptional, air freight and storage. These are the areas we excel in. But please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any other transport or logistics requirements. If we’re not in a position to do it ourselves, we’ll always have the right contact in our network. The shortest route to the goal…
