Marbox Int. Shipping & Forwarding was founded in 1989 by Mr Johan van Marion and Mr Bert Oomen - both of them with a long experience in freight forwarding.
In the beginning the majority of the activities were deep sea export shipping for mainly Dutch customers but after the first two year they decided to get into the Far East import business as well in which the company became rather successful especially in the porcelain product line. The number of containers handled for both import and export became in balance
After a few years the group structure expanded by forming Chembox B.V.,
specialised in chemical freight forwarding, founded in 1992 - and TICC Nederland B.V. acting as Customs Broker - founded in 1993 -

The total Group consisted of some 18 people - handling some 11.000 Teus a year
After a period of further firm and successful growth Bert Oomen decided to join a bigger Group in order to offer an even larger scale of activities and in Oct 2005 he sold the activities of Marbox Int. Shipping & Forwarding and TICC Nederland to the Vabix Group.
T.I.C.C. Nederland B.V. was founded 1993 by Marbox Holding B.V. and
Mr John Koster and became a part of the Marbox Group since there was
a need to arrange the Customs brokerage internally due to rising volumes.
