The influential Rotterdam-based shipping and logistics publication “Nieuwsblad Transport” this month interviewed Marco Tak of Dutch ship agents association VNC. The article specifically highlighted the enthusiasm with which the ship agency sector in the Netherlands has supported the introduction of the FONASBA Quality Standard. With the Standard only having been accredited in the Netherlands in September 2016, the number of companies currently approved to the Standard now stands at 22, with more expected in the coming weeks and months. The names of those companies are listed on the Quality Standard page of this website, and in the “Nieuwsblad Transport”article. More detailed information can be downloaded here.
Photographs of the ceremony held in early January to mark the award of the certificates to the first Dutch companies can be found on the VNC website and the “Nieuwsblad Transport” interview with Marco Tak (in Dutch) can be found here.
