On the first of August in 2001, Dijk Transport was established as a Limited Liability Company. Dijk started by collecting crushed scrap metal from companies such as Antillean Metal Scrap Processing and Trading N.V. and transported these materials to ships from companies which bought these for recycling overseas.
After signing a contract with Refineria Isla back in 2002, we expanded our business portfolio by also transporting scrap material from the refinery to the recycling company. Dijk Transport then also started with the collection of crushed glass from different containers to the glass recycling company and oily sludge from various ships that visited our harbour.
To expand its services, Dijk Transport invested in more tanks and vacuums to serve their clients better.
