The employees at Rotterdam are cross-trained for a variety of site jobs. From loading to fork-lift operations to health and safety, members of the team can pick up tasks from each other.
It’s this cohesive workforce that understands what it takes to do the job and do it safely. We’re proud that our Rotterdam team has had 17 years without a lost time incident.
As part of our community engagement in Rotterdam, we have a long-term relationship with Dalton Barendrecht, a local technical high school. Students between 13 and 14 years old receive an annual, real world technical project related to our operations. We focus on topics related to product handling and storage as part of our specific logistics and harbor activities. We also spend time discussing safety, health, environment, quality, and risk control. Our team members provide information and support throughout the project.
In addition, we also support EIC Mainport Rotterdam, an educational information center focused on the Port of Rotterdam. The center organizes excursions and other activities to introduce schoolchildren and university students to the port and the numerous career opportunities the port offers. This helps them better understand which education or professional direction they can choose.
