Vroon 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 150 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.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
