About us

Royal Dirkzwager

Eyes & ears of the maritime world

Thinking in solutions for the challenges in the maritime and logistics sector. That is what has moved Royal Dirkzwager since 1872. By cleverly combining services such as monitoring, reporting, communication services  we always know how to make the best combination between people and organizations. Whether it is about saving time and money, ensuring the safety of people and equipment at sea or reducing the burden on the environment.

We started as a ship reporting company and over the years we have further expanded our service package. Every day we provide more than 800 organizations in the maritime sector with up-to-date information. Every year we guide more than 200,000 ship movements. Well before arrival until gangway down, we inform the entire port community about the estimated time of arrival (ETA), the availability of nautical services and the berth.


Why we do what we do

We work with the belief that the correct interpretation, combination and translation of maritime data can be of vital importance. A lot of maritime data is now freely available. However, keeping an overview of all this data and interpreting it correctly, combining it and processing it into valuable information is professional work. And Royal Dirkzwager understands that profession like no other.
