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 closure of the Haringvliet Bridge is over and now we face an even bigger challenge as the Heinenoord Tunnel will be blocked for major maintenance. “It simply has to be done,” Simon van der Mark responds calmly. "We ensure that we load in the evenings so that we can depart at the crack of dawn and beat the worst traffic.” His son Tom responds just as positively: “Heinenoord Tunnel closed? Then we’ll just start even earlier.”
On May 20th, we had the annual outing and it was a real happening. We all had breakfast together, joined an exciting puzzle tour in old - yet well-preserved - Daf cars and made a boat trip through the picturesque Giethoorn. It was a day to cherish.
This three minute movie gives you a good impression of what we do on a daily basis at Van der Mark. You will recognise that we are no actors, but we are used to serve our customers to the max as possible and that is what we want to show to you. Logistics is running through our vanes!
