Noordriver Shipping lives and breathes transport and thinks in terms of transport solutions
Noordriver Shipping is a young, modern and international company with a good reputation in the area of sea transport. Henk van Diest and Arnold Bruins use their wealth of experience and their extensive network for the Noordriver Shipping family business that they founded on 17 October 2007. The office is located in Dordrecht, the oldest city in the Netherlands. The focus of the family business is on personal contact with and optimal attention for the clients. The independent shipping company excels in service-oriented work, reliability, expertise and excellent transport modalities.
Noordriver Shipping specialises in the worldwide transportation of dry cargo, both bulk cargo and general cargo, project cargo and containers. We carry out the commercial management of a fleet of seagoing ships, some of them being our own ships. The other core services include sea chartering, (commercial) agencies and international project cargo. We act on behalf of the clients as the broker or contracting carrier.
In 2007, 2008 and part of 2009, Noordriver Shipping was the operator of Baker Shipping Line, an independent semi-scheduled service between the Amazon/Brazil and five or six destinations between Portugal and the Benelux countries. In 2009, Noordriver Shipping acquired a stake in the motor vessel BENTE, a 4,000 ton coaster built in 2008. Noordriver Shipping also acquired a stake in the newly built ship LIEKE, a multi-purpose ship with its own cranes and 9,000 tons of cargo capacity. This ship was delivered to the shipping company in April 2011.
Noordriver Shipping has many years of experience in this industry. Over the years, we have built up an extensive national and international network. We have transported a wide variety of cargo, including coal, coke, grain products, general cargo, bagged goods and containers. As a result, we have the right solution for every transport requirement. Noordriver Shipping is pleased to introduce its professional team!
