As the Sales & Business Development Manager at WDP, Martijn Sleutjes crosses the whole of the Netherlands to (re)develop logistics real estate. We asked him how he fills his days and why he enjoys working at WDP so much.
Two years ago, WDP built a new 40,000 m² distribution centre for Ceva Logistics, which has been managing the storage and distribution of Medtronic’s medical devices since August 2017. Another 10,000 m² have been added in January 2019. Site Manager David Serarols shows us around the DC and reveals the challenges of medical devices logistics.
Digitisation and return logistics were central to the logistics world during the first month of the new year.
As the management team’s right hand, Marion Koemans’s work is never done. We asked this busy bee exactly what it was about WDP that appealed to her and what made her job as a personal assistant so much fun.
Five years ago, Marion took on a part-time job in a small team at the family-owned WDP. Today, she works full-time in a strongly growing team with great colleagues. “I grew up in a family-owned business, a flower wholesaler for the flower auction in Aalsmeer, and I was literally raised among the flowers and lorries,” says Marion.
Total Exotics, a growing company specialising in ready-to-eat avocados and mangos, will soon have been housed for one year in their new warehouse in Bleiswijk. WDP helped them bring their logistics processes under one roof as efficiently as possible.
We’re ringing in the new year with a new WDP Digest! In this first edition of the year, we share the latest developments and news from 2018 and take a look ahead at what the logistics world has in store for it this coming year.
Whoever applies for a job at WDP is warmly welcomed by Sophie Corona. As Group HR Manager, she has taken care of the WDP Team for almost seven years. It’s a job that’s written into her DNA and which allows her to look for the best in people and herself every day. We asked Sophie how she manages her day, and which challenges she faces.
