Hansea Wie zijn we

Hansea is the leading independent private bus operator in Belgium. Every single day, we deliver thousands of people to their destination. On the one hand Hansea provides urban and interurban transport services under the authority of public transport companies De Lijn and TEC. On the other hand Hansea is also active in school and personnel transport and also offers coach services. In addition, two of our companies have their own travel agency, enabling us to help our customers plan their international travels.

Hansea's values
People oriented

People oriented

People are the beating heart of our organisation. That is why we don’t just ferry people from point A to B: every day we strive to surpass the expectations of our passengers. Moreover, we aim to be a constructive partner in the wider mobility debate and in meeting the challenges of our stakeholders. That is why mutual respect and teamwork are central at Hansea.

Business Ethics

Our work culture builds on innovation, mutual respect, honesty and integrity in striving to create an atmosphere in which everyone takes their responsibility. By continuously investing in our relationship with customers, partners, suppliers and our own staff, we are able to offer reliable, transparent and ethical public and private transport services.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship

At Hansea we give our people the possibility and the responsibility to develop into passionate and proud ambassadors. Our people write their own story, adopt a solution-oriented approach and always put the customer first. From that passion we have expanded into locally and regionally embedded teams and subsidiaries, with an international audience.

Sustainability

Sustainability

Our organisation is uniquely aware of its impact on society. To meet its ambition of delivering sustainable transport services, Hansea focuses on more efficient energy use, effective waste and water management and optimum environmental performance. On top of this, we are evolving towards a greener vehicle fleet by opting for lower/zero emission vehicles. These are also the values we look for in staff, stakeholders, partners and suppliers.
