The feature:

The shunter shuffles the means of transport on the Willems Logistics site in Waalwijk on a daily basis according to the shunting list. You mostly communicate via walkie-talkie with the shippers who indicate when a combination can be docked or removed from the dock.

In short:

Many of your colleagues have been working at our company for years! Are you the person who wants to take on this challenge? Then get in touch soon.

Skills Needed

You have extensive experience in shunting and loading/unloading goods. You have a hands-on mentality and are obviously a fine colleague. You are able to maintain short lines of communication with mechanics and warehouse colleagues.
