The company was founded by the Vroon family over a century ago in the Port of Breskens, the Netherlands. Initially the company traded in coal, fertilisers and agricultural products. In 1952 the first dry cargo ship was built. From then on the company rapidly developed its shipping activities in many different markets.

Today Vroon is a dynamic and ambitious international shipping company, active in a number of specialised and commodity-type shipping segments. Vroon operates and manages a diverse fleet of about 140 vessels. A large fleet-expansion and newbuilding programme will secure further growth in the years ahead.

The main office is based in Breskens. However, management activities are undertaken by a number of Vroon Management Companies, as well as by affiliated companies and business partners around the world. Visit our contacts page.
