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.
Overall 2020 will be a successful year for VDM, although it could have been so much better without COVID. We steered flexibly and were able to respond on the changing demands. The Brexit has impact on logistics. Exporting companies require more storage space than ever before so we rented extra square meters. At the first of January Sebastiaan Hooghwerff will start as Financial Manager and Frank de Galan will join the AGP-team, so we are ready for 2021. Happy New Year to all of you.
Due to the lockdown we organized a corona-proof Christmas Drive Thru. Everyone was invited to come by car and drive through the stylish decorated and illuminated warehouse. Santa Clauses welcomed the visitors and served drinks and goodies. We had our own winter wonderland with Christmas carols and several stops for hot chocolate and oliebollen. At the end of the tour Simon and Marco presented Christmas boxes as end-of-year-bonus. Merry Christmas.
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!
