The Volharding Group stands for innovation and sustainability with a wide range of services. Koole Tankrederij BV and Star Bonaire BV are both proud members and have over 30 years of experience in shipping and maritime services. We have operations in the ARA region (the Netherlands and Belgium), as well as in Germany, Britain, France, Switzerland and Scandinavia.
We use our knowledge and experience to help companies transport edible oils and all the products derived from them. We do this for the food and feed sector. Additionally, we transport mineral oils, clean petroleum products (CPP) and various biofuels. In other words, our transport spectrum is very wide and we can handle any logistical challenge.
Our customers can always count on a personal approach and they benefit from our company’s expertise. Our highly experienced crews make sure that every transport is carried out safely and in full compliance with the latest requirements.
We are flexible, hands-on, creative, fast and focused on getting results that are in line with our customers’ requests. Our tonnages range from small to large. We always find a transport solution, even if there are tough time constraints.
Since our official start, we have grown by more than 300 percent. Customers know where to find us and are more than satisfied with our performance. We now transport a wide range of products – everything from food- and feed sector products to mineral oils at high volumes.
We invest continuously in our fleet and several inland barges are added to our fleet in 2023 for transporting edible oils, fats and mineral products. This grows both our marine and inland shipping and allows us to meet the need for transportation of larger volumes of various products.
