Human service in a jungle of rules

In the daily hectic business of logistics, trust and short lines of communication are indispensable. That’s why you look for a reliable and committed partner to support you. In other words: Special Cargo. As a family business, Special Cargo has a heart for the business and for each other.

Founded in the 1990s by Hans van der Maat and Huib den Dikken, the second generation is now at the helm. Led by Erik den Dikken, a close-knit team of professionals dedicate themselves daily to providing our customers with optimal support. In doing so, we work closely together, both within our team and with our clients. In the jungle of rules, laws and regulations, we are an enquirer, extension and partner.

Flexible and immovable

In our services, we always strive for flexibility. This allows us to offer our customers customized service, support and training. We are on top of developments in the market and laws and regulations. As a knowledge partner of the government, we are even directly involved in important industry decisions. This enables us to look far ahead and adjust where necessary with a steady hand.

When it comes to security, however, we are unwavering. There is no room for error or compromise; we are keenly observing that ourselves. Our customers know that their freight is in good hands with us, thanks to our in-depth knowledge and many years of experience. We make sure your dangerous goods are handled and transported compliantly and safely. This allows you to concentrate fully on your core business.

Expertise in practice and in school

Special Cargo is an authority and knowledge leader in the field of dangerous goods. We naturally put our knowledge into practice for our customers, during the packaging, documentation, transport and storage of dangerous goods. But we also take responsibility by training logistics professionals. Every year we train over 30,000 students. In this way, we enable others to also work according to applicable laws and regulations.

To keep things clear, we have divided our services into two branches. Special Cargo Services focuses on our dangerous goods storage and transportation services. Special Cargo College’s activities are all about sharing knowledge: as an educator with a large course offering, but also as an external safety consultant and aviation security advisor.
