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."

We invested in another five trailers and we bought some scooters. Scooters? Right. Not for pizza delivery, but for the commuting of our employees. The Heinenoordtunnel and the Haringvlietbrug will be closed frequently the coming months for maintenance work and this is our creative workaround. Trailers and scooters, okay, but four rally cars? That’s another story. Read the news flash about Team Bastion and the Morocco Desert Challenge.
This year the main bridge and tunnel connection to De Hoeksche Waard will be closed frequently for planned maintenance. That is a real challenge for everyone living and working here. Simon van der Mark is positiv as always: "This great maintenance work comes only every 50 years. Complaining doesn’t make sense, we have to deal with it and make the best of it.”
