Vertom Shipping & Trading


patron slider

Vertom was set up by Ton Pols in 1974. At the time, Vertom was located in the Rotterdam port area and had 20 employees and three ships.

In 1981, the company expanded. It opened various offices in Belgium. In the mid-1980s, they made their first steps towards the scheduled service to the Caribbean.

They have managed to continue that growth throughout the years. In 1999, Vertom Shipping UK Ltd. was started and the first port offices were a fact. In 2010, the company merged with Unity Beheer (UCS) B.V., which led to a considerable increase in terms of staff numbers and activities.

They have been located in a suitable location in Rhoon for a number of years now. Their office there is the ideal base. Despite their growth, they are still an independent company, with a lot of informal features. The name Vertom refers to their first ship: the MV Vera Tomson.

Thanks to its experience and professional attitude, Vertom is a major player on the national and international markets for goods transport by water. However, it continues to pursue improvement and expansion of its services.
