Partner with character: VCK Travel

Our profile

A partner with a clear profile – that’s VCK Travel. In everything we do, four drivers play a key role. They are ambition, innovations, service and empowerment. They make us who we are.

Ambitious by nature

At VCK Travel we never stand still – we always want to move forwards. That’s why our organisation has a permanent growth target – one we live up to. In 2013, for instance, VCK Travel grew by 30%.

Modern and innovative

VCK Travel wants to be distinctive. We like to take the lead. We therefore undertake material initiatives in specific areas, adding extra value using the latest technological applications. For example, VCK Travel’s booking module Crew.NET offers a unique innovation to the Maritime sector.

High-level service

VCK Travel always aims to maximise its service. We’re not price fighters, but we complement each trip or booking with personal added value. Our service provision distinguishes itself through transparency, speed and expertise. That makes VCK Travel the partner with a Personal Touch.

Healthy: empowerment

Empowerment is an essential element of our success. VCK Travel is a ‘flat’ organisation, with people from all levels of our company being involved in all processes and activities. This is an ideal environment for entrepreneurship – at VCK Travel, we don’t hesitate to take action whenever it is needed!

VCK Travel’s mission statement

VCK Travel aims to take work out of your hands. We are convinced that we can arrange business trips more easily, more efficiently and more economically than many other travel organisations. And at the same time, we provide exactly those services that you require – no more, no less. VCK Travel can be reached 24/7, and proactively supports its clients whatever their business travel needs.

Rich history

First founded in 1915 through a merger of two ship brokers, VCK can boast almost a century of experience. After the merger, the official name, in full, was ‘Verenigd Cargadoors Kantoor’ (‘United Shipbrokers’ Office’).

In 1947, VCK’s travel agency was established. It was the first in the Netherlands to receive the IATA licence. VCK Group’s core business is still very close to its original activities, i.e., the transport of freight and passengers by sea, land and air. Today, all companies forming part of VCK B.V. are modern and leading businesses, each in its own area of expertise.

Our management

Behind each successful company you will find a team of people who make it all possible. Every day, a group of some 250 specialists work hard to ensure satisfied customers and a growing business.
