Value proposition of Katoen Natie Ghent
The size of the large multi-customer platform enables Katoen Natie to create synergies between different operations on the same site. Not only synergies in terms of productive personnel, but also in terms of equipment, ICT, and management team. Because of the different types of operations on these multi-customer sites, Katoen Natie succeeds in optimizing the use of the surface and the warehouses. The use of our own WMS system for most operations on the same site (and also worldwide) enables a smooth and flexible start-up of new operations.
A solid base of skilled labour is available in the area. Katoen Natie employs almost 600 people at this site. Our operations are staffed with well-trained permanent and temporary employees, who can switch from one operation to another in order to manage the various peaks.
The staff is available 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, as some activities are in day, night and weekend shifts.Talk to an expert
