History book

The book 400 Years of Storage contains an overview of the 400-year history of Vopak and its precursors.

Vopak calculates its age based on its oldest forerunner: Blaauwhoedenveem, which was active in the Amsterdam port in the early 17th century. For the sake of clarity, we have chosen to divide the book into five chapters, each focusing on one of the forerunners. The fifth and final chapter describes the creation of Vopak itself and the company's development over the past several years.
