Ovet Shipping today
Knowing the history also tells something about the present activities. The specific know-how of (former) partners have formed the solid basis for a number of core activities today. Through the relation with the stevedoring company Ovet B.V., Ovet Shipping has been able to develop as a specialist in the field of dry bulk cargoes, especially solid fuels, ores and fertilisers. Next to that, there is a profound knowledge and experience in handling liquid cargoes as well as forwarding of containers and project cargo. We are very proud of our history, having been part of some of the leading companies in shipping and logistics in Europe.
The last 50 years, quality in service has always been our main goal. On the 4th of September 1991 Ovet Shipping developed, as one of the first shipping agents in the Netherlands, and the first in the Scheldt estuary, a quality system in accordance with the ISO-9001 standard. On the 16th of July 2012 Ovet Shipping was Authorised Economic Operator Full (AEOF)-certified by the Dutch customs. Throughout the years, Ovet Shipping has not only maintained the system, it has been improved continuously.
Today, Ovet Shipping B.V. has developed itself as one of the leading shipping agents and maritime- and logistic service provider operating in the ports of Terneuzen and Flushing (Vlissingen), offering high quality and tailor-made services to our valued clients.
