    Goals / remit

EVO represents the interests of some 20,000 companies in The Netherlands that transport goods for their own account or contract this out to a professional transport company. They come from all sectors of industry, including wholesale, retail, construction, agricultural and business services.

Our members are users of freight services across all modes of transport: deep sea shipping, short sea shipping, air transport, road transport, rail and inland waterways. They operate both within Europe and overseas.

EVO brings the views of member companies to the notice of political decision-makers and public authorities not only at regional level, but also in the Hague and Brussels. We also convey our own and our members' views to carriers in all modes of transport, both directly and through their organisations.

EVO is an international level member of European Shippers’ Council (ESC), International Road Transport Union (IRU), Union of Industrial and Employers Confederations in Europe, (UNICE) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
