Rooskens was founded in 1988 as a transport company. In 1993, it changed to it’s expedition activities and was renamed Rooskens BV, with a specialization in transports to Western Europe.

The start of MR Expeditie BV in 1995 led to an expansion of activities in the other parts of Europe. Due to gained experience and investments, a close-knit network with reliable partners was built in Europe.

Following multiple requests, overseas expeditions began with the establishment of Rooskens Shipping BV. For this, a specific network of partners was chosen at strategic places these where primarily in the major ports of the world.

Because of the expansion, a dicision was made to move to our current offices located in Buggenum in 2003. In this picturesque village, a team was created with local employees who continued the family company’s atmosphere. Currently, Rooskens Group has 25 employees who unburden our customers from their transport-related activities with short lines of communication.
