Digitisation and return logistics were central to the logistics world during the first month of the new year. Read about which logistics solutions and new trends you should not miss in recent weeks here.
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.
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.
In 2017, we converted the Pauwenhof farmhouse in Wolvertem into office space and christened it as our WDP headquarters. We chose a geothermal installation because we believe sustainability is extremely important. We use this system to generate energy-efficient green heat or cold using the temperature of the ground. This has allowed us to reduce our annual power consumption by 39% and our CO² emissions by 29%.
WDP built a new 30,000 m² construction project last year in Zellik for Euro Pool System, Europe’s largest logistics service provider for multi-use packaging. From this service centre, among other things, the return logistics of the distribution centre of Delhaize in Zellik take place. A logistics process that overflows with sustainability from start to finish.
