From taxi service to crew experts
Boers began as a taxi service with just one car. Today, we are the experts in transporting seafarers over land. Transport from door to vessel and vice versa, hotel accommodations, international paperwork, contact with Immigration and authorities, getting around the port, or tender transport to and from the vessel – whatever your requirements are and no matter what the crew size is, we can facilitate and organise it. With 3 locations in Europe, around 75 passionate experts, an extensive network and a fleet of comfortable taxis and buses, we go the extra mile for our customers, 24/7. Our planners, drivers, financial controllers, operation department and IT professionals provide smooth and flexible operations in an industry that is constantly changing.
Peace of mind from start to finish
Providing good support is one thing, but providing the best possible service is another. With our Rotterdam roots, we take 'hands-on mentality' to the next level. We are specialists in documentation such as the Schengen visa and Visa on Arrival. We can arrange hotel rooms at fixed prices thanks to our contracts with several hotel chains. We also have extensive experience with COVID-related matters such as PCR testing and vaccination. In short, with Boers Crew Services, you can rest assure that your crew changes will run smoothly in all Dutch, German or Belgian ports.
Working at Boers - The Netherlands
Feels like coming home
A typical Rotterdam saying is ‘geen woorden maar daden’ which means as much as 'actions speak louder than words' – The entire BCS Group lives by this. This approach means that we are always able to realize our common goals. When there is a lot of work, we get down to business. And when it's quiet, we have fun with the whole team. Also outside of office hours, we organize lots of fun things that help built our team. This results in a good work atmosphere and a team who knows and trusts each other. Knowing this, it is no wonder our teams are growing and people stay with us for the long haul.Interested in joining our team? Visit our Dutch job vacancies page
