History

For the very first sailing of Maaskade Bevrachters we must return to 1961. Then the enterprise started as a carrier of molasses and vinasse for the livestock feed and fermentation industries. In the course of the years the firm grew and the service was extended step by step. Now, more than half a century later, Maaskade Bevrachters is a leading transport partner in the vegetable and edible oil market, fermentation and livestock feed industries. Besides we are operational in the paper industry and we serve several niche markets with the transport of dedicated products.
