Our mission

"Our mission expresses the reason for our existence: offering tailor-made solutions for logistics. This requires being an innovative, cost competitive and sustainable company."

Our values

We show craftsmanship

The fundament of our business is craftsmanship. This is a combination of experience, knowledge, professionalism, safety culture and performance ability on board a vessel. It is about the knowledge and skills to operate, navigate, manage the people, the safety and the maintenance of a ship. This capability is the result of life long training and learning, often transferred from one generation of seafarers to the next.

We communicate

Good communication starts with mutual trust and respect. Clear, two-way communication is essential to quickly understand what’s going on, to take the right actions at an early stage and to give and get proper feedback about performance.

We work safe

Safe working is one of our core competences because we want to come home safely. The key lies in showing personal leadership - both at sea and in the office.

We have a strong eye for efficiency

An important company goal is to safely operate the vessel in the most economical way. Future success in our business requires a clever utilization of ship, cargo and crew.

We are engaged

A safe and well-performing ship is only possible when both seafarers and office staff are willing and able ‘to go the extra mile’. This engagement can only exist when we feel like we are part of a team in which we trust, appreciate, support and develop our colleagues.

We represent and respect Wagenborg

For more than a century, our shipping company is a reliable business partner. Today we belong to the ‘100 Club’: out of almost 23.000 ownership groups worldwide, there are only 50 ownership groups with more than 100 vessels. This is something to be very proud of.

Royal Wagenborg has a storied past, and we are proud of our long history. Our history is part of our platform for future success and thus intimately linked to our present activities and future goals.
