Frank Sterkens followed a high college education for manager of business administration and quality assurance manager of ISO 9000. In 1995 it was very difficult to find a qualified job, so he started in October the 1st, 1995 Trans Stars company in Made.
Trans Stars started as a haulier for Sea-Land to transport deep-sea containers with a Renault G290GT of 1986 with a 20’ and 40’ trailer.
