SLS Travel Solutions , Our History
Three travel companies, namely, Oostenrijk Touringcars (1922), Maaskant Reizen (1923) and Havi Travel (1924), established SLS Travel Solution (SLS) in the autumn of 2006. The three shareholders of SLS, besides being coach-touring entrepreneurs, are also travel businesses and geographically spread throughout The Netherlands. After many years of experience in the travel industry and passenger transport, all three companies are an integral part of the national and international travel industry.
Within the framework of a European public contract for defence transports, for which national coverage was a requirement, the three companies decided to establish SLS as they had been working together for many years. In addition, it was a strategic decision to work together more closely, keeping the future in mind, as to ensure expansion, which brought many advantages for all three parties. Finally, as a member of GPN (Global Passenger Network), which is a part and a trade name of SLS, lead to the foundation of SLS.
SLS Travel Solution has been established primarily to focus on:
By this, we mean national transport projects by large public enterprises and institutions in the private and commercial sector.
Public transport concessions
SLS is of the opinion that, due to the ever-growing concession areas, the investments and complexity of public transport will also increase. Due to this, it is difficult for the public transport companies to maintain a flexible and high quality service, and therefore these companies will rely more on companies from the private bus transport sector in the future.
National and international travel industry
Having had many years of experience within the travel industry and passenger transport, the company also aims itself towards large transport projects for the incoming and outgoing travel industry. We think of ourselves as being in control of transport, hotel accommodation and restaurants for tourists at home as well as abroad.
