LV Shipping & Transport was established in 1921 in the Netherlands under the name J. Lensveld & Zonen B.V. The family company started with horse and carriage and traded in transport, road building, sand and rubbish skips. The head office is still located in Vlaardingen, the Netherlands.

In 1977 a new ferry trailer department started named Elvex. Shortly after this the first office in the UK was set up in Sheerness. It was operated a branch office to help return the trailers that were being shipped from Holland to the UK. LV Shipping & Transport was formally established in 1986, set up to undertake major oil and petrochemical forwarding contracts in the North Sea. Now 11 offices are strategically located along the  East Coast of Scotland and England.

In more recent years, LV Shipping & Transport opened offices in Singapore, USA and Saudi Arabia. This growing network of own offices and dedicated agents offers you a full range of logistical services offers. Together with our facilities and our international teams of specialists we are dedicated to offer you a personal service tailored to the most demanding industry standards.
