It is with great honor that we look at our Ghent distribution center, as it is the biggest one of the Volvo Group worldwide. It holds spare parts of every brand, which means all spare parts of the truck brands, the construction equipment, the busses and the marine- and industrial engines. Being successful in the long run, that is our vision! Therefore, we offer storage but also secondary activities, which focus on delivery precision, service and efficiency.

This is us, your new colleagues
