Axel Williamsson bought his first truck in 1952. That very same year he founded the transport company that is still owned by the Williamsson family. We believe in committed, long-term customer relationships and carry out all road transports in the North with our own vehicles. With the help of our trusted partners our deliveries also reach other parts of Europe.
We know that a lot of things can happen when goods are transported from one door to another. This is why we find it very important to supervise and make sure that each transport phase runs smoothly. Our own dispatchers and our own transport terminal help to guarantee that we can always offer flexible goods handling. It also means that we can tailor every service according to your requirements, minimise injuries or delays and increase the utilisation rate of our vehicles.
Did you know that Axel Williamsson has transported candles from the local soap factory and crisp bread from Vaasa’s old steam mill? Once the machinery for an entire crisp-bread factory (including a sauna) were transported to Holland!
The company is founded.
Axel buys his first truck (a Volvo).
Foreign traffic begins with the route Vaasa–Oslo. One trip required 2 drivers and took around 2 weeks.
The first drawbar trailers are bought from Helsinki.
Heavy vehicles are permitted on board the Vaasa–Umeå ferry. One of Axel Williamsson’s trucks becomes the first heavy vehicle to be reversed onto M/S Wasa Express in Vaskiluoto, Vaasa.
A new terminal is being built in Vaskiluoto. The company moves in during May 1980.
Axel’s daughter, Yvonne, becomes the company’s first female driver.
