The more data we receive, the more insights we get from it
Marrit Hopmans about her function as Manager Data & Reporting
Van den Bosch knows only one direction: forwards. That’s why we think differently to others. We operate differently from others. We innovate not for innovation’s sake but to make a real difference every day. Not just on paper but in practice. By combining logistical knowledge and experience with the unprecedented possibilities of data, technology and automation, we, our employees and our customers are in a state of constant evolution.
The fact that we can actually see the effect of our work is what motivates me the most
Beata Koch on her position as commercial manager
After some years living in Germany, commercial manager Beata Koch returned to her home country of Poland to work in bulk logistics. With considerable experience behind her, she was finally ready for a new challenge in which she could use her market and language expertise, in addition to her sales talent. Van den Bosch offered her that challenge.
Van den Bosch is a large international organisation, but still feels small-scale and informal
Brecht den Otter about her internship in Sweden
Brecht is following the Master's programme in Supply Chain Management at Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUAS). For her internship she is based at our office in Sweden for 3.5 months. This isn’t her first internship at Van den Bosch - it’s now her third. But the last one this time, as she graduates in June.
Excellent preparation for the job
Loekie on the Van den Bosch introduction programme
Would Loekie van Dam have got off to such a flying start without the introduction programme at the Van den Bosch Academy? Our Customer Service (Dry Bulk) colleague is clear on this. "Absolutely not. This comprehensive introductory programme taught me a lot about my new job and about the company. For me, this was the perfect introduction."
I like the regularity and the structure - I know what the company expects of me
Wilhelm Wagner about his job as an international bulk driver
The best thing about his job? The freedom of driving on Europe's highways. Bulk driver Wilhelm Wagner has an important responsibility, but carries it with light-hearted ease. "I feel at home behind the wheel - I’m perfectly happy there."
I think it’s great that I can now share my passion and experience
Carlo Meeuwsen about his job as Master Driver
We at Van den Bosch all love what we do every day. That’s why we are so proud of our industry and our perspective on it. We’ll never tire of talking about it. Our passion for smart, innovative and sustainable solutions is irresistible. It’s how, together, we guarantee quality. To employees, customers, end-users and society at large.
I was once told: You’ll only be listened to once you’ve gone grey or bald. I want to disprove that
Ralf Pashouwers about his position as teamleader division Dry Bulk
Good can be better. Reliable can be more reliable. Green can be greener. Smart can be smarter. Every day we raise the bar. This entrepreneurial attitude has been in our DNA since 1964. To achieve these things, we give employees the room they need, we promote promising developments and we share our knowledge. Yes, we are ambitious and entrepreneurial. And we have an affinity with people, projects and concepts who share that spirit.
Together you come to a solution faster than alone
