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."
From one single dogcart to thousands of HP
In a century's time, VDM has grown into a reputable, (inter)national carrier and warehouse specialist that has become an increasingly important link in the European logistic chain.
Since 2000, Simon Van der Mark - the fourth generation - is at the helm of a well-respected company that is active all around the globe.
The Herring Party of the united business clubs in The Hoeksche Waard on June 27th resulted in a great donation for the local Hospice. Van der Mark is one of the sponsors of this yearly event and at the auction - part of this charity fund raising - we were the highest bidder for the barrel of fresh fish. We love fish so we organised a herring party ourselves at July 12th and that was a big success as well.
VDM has strengthened its management team with the coming of Marco Stolk. “This is of great importance for the future plans of VDM,” states Simon van der Mark. “We are growing and professionalising and Marco brings a lot of experience and seniority.” Marco Stolk worked for years as Group Manager Logistics & Quality Management for the PACOMBI GROUP.
We selected Boltrics 3PL Dynamics as the best fit for VDM. This innovative solution makes use of real-time data and helps us to work very efficiently. After months of testing the system has gone live. We started a pilot with one of our top three customers and after fine-tuning we will use Boltrics by the end of this year for all our relationships.
