Vopak's history goes back to 1616. In its earliest form, our company offered storage and related services to trading companies such as the Dutch East Indies Company. The goods that these traders were taking to the Netherlands (mainly coffee, tea and spices) had to be weighed, sorted, stored and redistributed within the Netherlands and beyond. Vopak's predecessors catered for these needs, facilitating the rapid growth of the Dutch economy. Around 1860, when the Dutch East Indies Company was long gone, the first oil was being drilled in the United States and it was not long before petroleum products were imported to Europe. We built the first-ever dedicated oil storage container in Europe, in the Port of Rotterdam. Our first bulk liquid storage facility has now grown to become a global network of Vopak terminals around the world. In 1999, Vopak was formed by the merger of two international logistic service providers, Pakhoed and Van Ommeren. Today, we are the world's largest independent tank terminal operator with almost 400 years of experience in storage and transshipment.
Royal Vopak is the world's largest independent liquid bulk tank storage service provider by capacity, specialized in the storage and handling of oil products, liquid chemicals and gasses. They operate 80 terminals in 28 countries with a combined storage capacity of 34.0 million cbm, Vopak's mission is to ensure safe, reliable and effective storage and handling of bulk liquid products at key marine locations that are critical to our customers around the world.
