A look into the future

Paul van der Burg: “IDS has experienced significant growth over the last few years. Customers are reaping the benefits of outsourcing some or all of their logistics operations to independent Control Towers like us. We are honoured to be working for some of the most terrific brands out there. To manage our growth in the right direction, I will be focusing even more on optimizing our operations and delighting our clients in existing and new ways.”
