Name: Tine
Location: Zeebrugge

Tine has forged her career at CLdN, joining the company in 2005. Tine says: “I started my career as a lasher and, after years of hard work and dedication, I reached a significant milestone by becoming the first female tug master driver in Zeebrugge. I recently took on the role of foreperson, leading and coordinating my team. Despite being surrounded mostly by male colleagues, I found my place and thrived in my role. Each day brings new challenges, but I embrace them wholeheartedly. It's what keeps me engaged and passionate about my work. I hope I can inspire women to take up roles in typically male-dominated workplaces and to show them that anything is possible.

Name: Kevin
Location: Rotterdam

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.

Name: Jerry
Location: Rotterdam

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. 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.
