  • Van Dam Shipping

    Family business since 1991

    Our eight modern cargo ships sail mainly in North-West Europe. Six of our vessels are especially adapted for the Saima Canal in Finland. In addition, we take the greatest care to reduce emissions during all our ship movements.

    Taking care of everything

    Van Dam management offers partners a complete package of ship management services. Years of experience with our own shipping company have given us the know-how that we can apply to several parties and their own ships. In addition, we take all the worries out of the ship owner’s hands when it comes to ISM, Technical, Crew Management and ICT.

  • Van Dam Green Future

    We believe in ‘Econology’

    We want to be the greenest transport partner for our customers. To this end, we focus on developing new, sustainable technologies within our own fleet and a zero emission focus within all our shipping movements. But we also work on sustainable developments for the shipping industry as a whole. We participate in various projects that deal with sustainability on board ships and we work together with universities on new techniques for more sustainable shipping.

Our people

Perhaps the greatest value we place is on our people. Investing in their safety, health and job satisfaction is key. We are, therefore, proud of the fact that we sail with over 120 permanent crew members. They know the ships, they know us, they know our partners and vice versa. So we can all count on each other.
