Vopak’s mission is to make a sustainable contribution to ensure more efficient logistics processes by being the leading provider of an independent, optimum terminal infrastructure at locations that are critical to Vopak’s customers in all regions of the world. To achieve our mission, we shall continue to invest in the further growth of our global network, in our customer service and in continuous operational improvements.
Vopak has developed a strategy to realize that mission. This strategy rests on three pillars:
Vopak’s strategy is executed through focused strategic initiatives and internal ‘excellence programs’ for the further improvement of existing operational processes. All this is supported by an ongoing evaluation process of possible changes to worldwide product flows, intensive collaboration with clients, sharing knowledge within the Vopak network at a global level, strategic collaboration with various partners and consulting experts in wide-ranging areas for improvement.
Vopak was formed through a merger of Koninklijke Van Ommeren N.V. and Koninklijke Pakhoed N.V. in 1999. On 22 April 2002 Vopak completed a strategic review as announced on January 28, 2002. Based on a comprehensive evaluation of all strategic alternatives it was management's preliminary conclusion that it was in the best interest of Vopak and all its stakeholders that the chemical distribution activities were split-off into a separately listed Dutch company called Univar. In this scenario Vopak has continued with tank storage and related logistics activities since July 1 2002.

Baring exceptional circumstances, the principle underlying Vopak’s dividend policy is the intention to pay an annual cash dividend of 25% to 40% of the net profit excluding exceptional items attributable to holders of ordinary shares.
The net profit excluding exceptional items that forms the basis for dividend payments may be adjusted for the financial effects of one-off events, such as changes in accounting policies, acquisitions, reorganisations, etc.
In setting the amount of the dividend, account is taken not only of the company's desirable capital ratios and financing structure, but also of the flexibility it requires to successfully pursue its growth strategy. At same time, Vopak seeks to assure its shareholders of a stable trend in dividends.
Each year, Vopak publishes an Annual Report and a Sustainability Report. These reports can be found in the IR Toolkit.
