Value proposition of Katoen Natie SMDC

The size of the large multi-customer platforms allows Katoen Natie to create synergies between different operations on the same site. Not only synergies in the field of productive personnel, but also in the field of equipment, ICT, and management team. Due to 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 for new operations.

There is a solid base of skilled workforce available in the area. Katoen Natie employs almost 700 people on this site. Our operations are staffed with permanent and temporary employees, with the vast majority of temporary employees being well trained by Katoen Natie and switching from one operation to another to assist in the various peaks.

Staff is available 24/6 hours a day for the site because some work is carried out in day, night and weekend shifts.
