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.
VTO-Dubbelman B.V. is a successful charterer and renowned container operator in the harbour-triangle Rotterdam, Antwerp and Moerdijk. “Gebr. Plomp was one of our preferred transport companies,” says Sarah Dubbelman. “VDM has acquired this part of the activities of Plomp and they do the work as if nothing has changed. Something did change; Patricia van der Mark is my first contact now and that seems to be a very good match.”
The new owner of Gebr. Plomp restructured the company and Van der Mark took over three of the trucks and three of the experienced truck drivers including the corresponding customers’ load. Simon van der Mark: “This is a win-win situation for both sides and our entrance to the container business.”
The IFS-certificate is a confirmation that VDM works safely and in line with all relevant International Food Standard legislations of IFS Logistics. "This IFS-certificate is an extra guarantee for our customers in the food-industry that their goods are in safe hands with us," states Marco Stolk.
