IDS. Since 1988

IDS. Since 1988

From day one, we believe it is all about exceeding customer expectations. Empowering positive change, encouraging new thinking and looking for continuous improvement for our customers, their suppliers, their customers and all carriers.

How it all started

In 1988, twelve transport companies bundled their strengths on international transport. Each of them experts on certain countries and lanes in Europe and all sharing the same ambition to offer more complete transport solutions across the whole of Europe. Together they created a independent orchestrator called IDS. Right from the start a strong drive to collaborate and together making ambitions happen is what sets us apart. Next to offering 4PL Control Tower and Freight Forwarding services we also developed our own TMS with the ultimate goal to continuously improve performance and visibility while reducing cost.
