”Your Shipping Needs….Our Challenge, already for 50 Years”







Having evolved from the Dutch company “Dammers & van der Heide’s Shipping & Trading Company NV”, Dammers & van der Heide Shipping & Trading (Antilles) Inc. (“Dammers & van der Heide”, for short) was established in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles in 1964 and became active as a shipmanager, ship- and cargobroker, liner and tramp shipagent. Since then, Dammers & van der Heide has evolved, exploring and entering new markets and focusing on key shipping issues/opportunities in the Caribbean.



Due to the having many (shipping) service providers in Aruba and Curacao and thanks to the "user friendly" Customs and Immigrations regimes on the Islands, the Dammers Group together with our shipping partners, have managed to attract quite a few big / interesting projects to our Islands.
