The ELV was founded in 1994, by a dozen of Dutch barge owners.
Currently, we boast about 100 adhering enterprises from Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands, with an individual loading capacity of 350 to 900 tons. Our collective cargo capacity runs up to over 55.000 tons. On top of that we charter external vessels.
The ELV is managed by an executive committee, consisting exclusively of barge owners. The present chairman is Bart Verkade. Twice a year, the lines of policy are discussed with all members.
