Vereniging van Rotterdamse Cargadoors (VRC)
VRC (Association of Rotterdam Shipbrokers and Agents) offers loading support to visiting vessels in the port area. The company represents the interests of shipowners, shippers as well as freight forwarders. It ensures the smooth loading and unloading of cargo onto and off the vessel, mostly container cargo. However, roll-on-roll-off, bulk, break bulk and neo bulk cargoes are also in good hands with the VRC loaders.
The activities of VRC depend on customer type. Enterprises in tramp trade use VRC for ship and crew management and for representing the stakeholders of the cargo. In liner shipping, the brokerage of cargoes on behalf of shippers is an important task. VRC was founded in 1969, but its history goes back to 1889.
