What started out as a sideline job at Schiphol has grown into an innovative company that is fully focused on service. Founders Koen Aalders and Richard Schrage wanted to make air freight transport better, faster and more efficient, and they remain committed to this aim today.
After many years of hard work at Schiphol, they had both built up a large, relevant network. In 2009, they took the bold move of starting their own business and Independent World Services was born. This was in the midst of the financial crisis, but there was one thing that they knew for sure: as long as you commit to providing a good service and put your customers’ wishes at the centre of what you do, you will be a success. Thanks in part to its creative solutions, perseverance and motivated team, IWS has grown from an ambitious start-up into an innovative, flexible and service-oriented company. We always go the extra mile!
From the outset, IWS has increasingly tailored its services to meet specific customer wishes. We focus on what is important to you. That is why we are keen to make the logistics process as simple as possible. With this in mind, we have developed an innovative online system, the IWS web portal, which makes it easy to register, send and track your shipment to its final destination.
As a professional logistics service provider, we act as an extension of your own organisation. We are highly responsive and benefit from an extensive network within the (international) logistics sector, ensuring we have short lines of communication with the right parties. We also know how to improvise and stress is something that drives us forward rather than holding us back. We are always there for you!
