In June 1954, Willie Dieterle & Paul Victory started the company, known by many today simply as D & V, in a small office on 24 Stone Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Their philosophy was simple - work hard and give the customer uncompromising service and quality in all areas. The business will grow and your reputation will follow you wherever you go.

I am proud to say that D & V has continued to follow the simple philosophies of its' founders and has continued to grow and prosper over the last five decades. We continue to distinguish ourselves by providing quality and efficiency in all aspects of forwarding. We actively promote a culture where the customer is our top priority. Indeed, D & V has built a reputation of being able to satisfy the most demanding customers in our global network. The company has acquired this reputation by having experienced people on board who understand the customers' requirements.

We look forward to helping our customers navigate their way through the ever increasing demands of shipping and logistics, while continuing to build strong relationships with our clients and network partners worldwide.

I would like to thank all of our customers for their support of D & V. I have been fortunate enough to meet people from all walks of life and consider myself lucky to work with them and in many instances, develop friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime.

Here's to another 50 years!
