Who we are

Fourth Party Logistics (4PL), first point of contact.

IDS, founded in 1988, is the first truly independent 4PL Logistics Control Tower specialist in the Netherlands. Driven by the vision that through collaboration everybody benefits, 12 transport companies decided to work together on international transport across Europe.

Leveraging each other strengths and expertise through a independent hub which they branded IDS.

How we empower you. Today and tomorrow.

Located in the centre of The Netherlands, we are the smart orchestrator of goods flows by road, rail, air and water for our customers. We do this throughout Europe. We orchestrate, monitor, analyse , advise, improve, assist, unburden and provide insight into supply chain optimisation.

We do not own our own trucks or warehouses, which means that we are able to unburden you with the best transport solution for every situation. 100% transparent, 100% independent.

Our promise to you is our commitment to exceed expectations, our passion for long term partnerships, our believe in the power of collaboration and connectivity between people and tech and our love to make a difference. All part of our DNA. We do not care about being the biggest. We care about being the best. The best for our clients and the best version of ourselves. That is what happiness is all about. Through the IDS Academy we continously work on our skills, our technology platform and new innovations to deliver on our and your ambitions.
