Meet the team

I’ve been working for CLdN in Rotterdam since April 2010. I’ve been able to maximise my potential, partly due to the port crane operator training I’ve received, and today, I still enjoy going to work at the Rotterdam terminal. I’ve always been open to learning new things, and at CLdN I can develop myself both personally and professionally. As a result, I’ve become more versatile in my role and career.

I am a no-nonsense person. Within CLdN, this works very well. A lot has changed at the company in recent years for the better, from safety protocol to infrastructure. Last month I celebrated my 12.5-year anniversary at CLdN. If you ask me, I'll add another 30 years onto that. In terms of my future prospects, I aspire to a managerial position. Time will tell.

Initially, I worked only in operations as a reach stacker and tug master driver. For the last year and a half, I’ve filled the role of assistant team leader. I track the unloading and loading of ships, make sure units are stacked on time, and contact the CLdN shipping line to check on bookings of cargo. In other words, I do a bit of everything. My team know what’s expected of them, but they like having a direct point of contact too – I think a team leader can give just that little bit of extra direction within the company.

Important qualities include determination and problem-solving abilities. At CLdN, you get a lot of freedom. It’s a nice workplace environment, and my colleagues have a real ‘port mentality’. It's cool to see everything changing and to see the company grow bigger – for example, the new canteen, new RMG cranes, rebuilding the stack. I’m satisfied with the job I have now and have plenty of prospects for the future.
