Rijnaarde BV is a young firm – founded 2003 – active in inland and maritime freighting, located at Beuningen which is situated immediately to the West of Nijmegen, almost on the River Waal (as the Rhine is called once it has crossed the Dutch-German border). Company website.
Two experienced owners – names not given, nor those of the firm they once worked for and finally took over – lead Rijnaarde. In an area covering the Benelux countries, France, Germany, and Switzerland, shipments are arranged for a fleet of 25 private barges. In addition there are freighting services concerning sea-going transport and transhipments. Lastly, Rijnaarde is a construction material supplier.
Above shipments consist of bulk goods, of which wood and sand, gravel and the like are highlighted on the site. Intermodal transport (seamless integration of different means of transportation) is very important to Rijnaarde.
The photos (“Foto’s”) on the site are very instructive – as they should
be – and the first one very fittingly shows the house flag: yellow, bearing
the firm’s logo: a light blue disk partially covered by three dark blue
waves – frimbriated white – and large dark blue letters ‘RIJNAARDE’ to
the right of it. Logo and name cover about one fourth of the flag’s
surface and they seem to be placed on the flag’s horizontal median line
instead of in the centre.
(A few other pictures also show this flag, and Amer Shipping makes a guest appearance.).
