After the 'Afsluitdijk', a big dam in the former South Sea, was finished in 1932, many things changed for the fishing village called Urk. All at once it was no longer possible to catch salt water fish in the 'Zuiderzee', like it had been in former days. Landing the fish could no longer take place in their own port. The fisherman of Urk were now forced to focus on the North Sea and land their catch in the big North Sea ports like Den Helder, Harlingen and IJmuiden.
Encouraged by these developments, Jurie Brouwer purchased a truck. Herewith he was able to meet the fishermen's need to transport their catch to the fish auction on Urk. As the North Sea-Fisheries increased, Brouwer Urk Int. Transport grew at the same pace. The vehicle fleet was extended to fifteen trucks and nineteen refridgerated trailers.

Since 1995 Jurie's son Jakob Brouwer is the first responsible. Your freight is in safe hands with him and his well-skilled employees.

Brouwer Transport is ISO 22000 certified. Trailers are built in a way that they meet high hygiene standards. The trailers are frequently cleaned in the car wash area on our premises.



The temperature of your product is guaranteed to be correct. For your security, the temperature and the activities of the cooling engine are accurately recorded. If necessary, this data is retrievable later on in order to guarantee your quality.



Brouwer Transport is always looking for fuel-saving opportunities. For example by doing tests with a fuel additive. Our drivers have to complete refresher courses in 'eco-driving.' Accurate records of fuel usage create awareness among our drivers regarding fuel consumption.

Correct use of ICT solutions results in a tight schedule and few 'empty' kilometers. Therefore the percentage of 'green' kilometers is high.
