About us

Cornelder Holding B.V. is a family business founded in 1814 as services provider for ship owners and maritime agents in the port of Rotterdam. Cornelder made a strong organic growth and became a renowned one-stop-shop that serves all her clients’ maritime and logistic needs. For Cornelder, Rotterdam was a starting point but the focus became increasingly overseas. First mainly within Europe but later as well Africa and Asia. Cornelder was further consolidated with acquisitions and joint ventures to restructure the core business.

Today, Cornelder is investing as a majority or minority shareholder in innovative and creative companies with mostly a link to the base of our maritime and logistics expertise in Europe and in East Africa.
