Van der Mark is a provider of logistic services that carries on where others leave off. We do this by combining modern technology with the best of the past. "A deal is a deal; that was true a hundred years ago when my great-grandfather started the business and I believe this is still true today," says Simon Van der Mark. "Of course we do innovate and implement changes because the transport industry is in constant motion. This requires an ongoing improvement process, maximum flexibility and adaptability so that the services provided are always perfectly in line with the logistic needs and processes of our customers. Everything we do is about transparent communication and mutual respect. We are fully prepared to meet every logistic need of our customers."

The old submarine productiion hall of the RDM was the fantastic spot for the Port Exhibtion Rotterdam 2017 on the 11th and 12th of May. This part of Rotterdam is worth visiting after its transformation in the last decade.
Simon: "We had a great event and we needed more beer barrels - because of the good weather and the enourmous number of visitors - than ever before."
It was a great evening and everyone enjoyed the singing of Just Franky and the good food of our catering partner Restaurant De Rustburcht. It was the ultimate moment to honor some special colleagues. Michel Sluimer, Hans Beije and Gert van Brakel received an anniversary gratification for celebrating their 12,5- and 25- and 35-year employment.
