As an Expedition Employee at EuroSort you are responsible for the organisation of transport from and to customers. You do this by loading and unloading goods with a forklift truck in the warehouse. You also regularly transport goods between the locations in 's-Graveland and Weesp with a company bus.

EuroSort sends goods all over the world and the transport is mainly carried out by external companies. You make sure that (package) shipments are correctly packed and that the necessary documentation is added. This also applies to follow-up shipments to projects. You make loading lists and corresponding registrations, so that you know what is loaded into which vehicle. You document all this in the CRM system.

You are part of the Shipping Department, together with the Head of Expedition, Shipping Officers and other Expedition Employees. You will report to the Senior Shipping Officer.

If you like orderliness, can work accurately and enjoy having contact with drivers from different countries, this is the job for you.

Working week

Expedition Employee

On an enjoyable working day, you have a lot of freedom to plan your day and all goods are loaded on time. This gives me a satisfied feeling.

On a less enjoyable day, many consignments have to be sent off on time. This creates some work pressure, but fortunately this never lasts long.

Firsthand experience

A foreign driver comes to collect a shipment, but communication is difficult. How do you solve this?

You discuss with the driver what load he or she is coming to collect, how it will fit in the truck and where the shipment is going. If the driver does not speak Dutch or English, this can be a bit awkward. With Google Translate you can usually work things out.


EuroSort considers personal development very important. That's why there are many opportunities to continue education and attend training programmes and courses. At the moment, EuroSort is developing a training policy to make this more concrete.

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I started in 2011 as an Engineer at EuroSort. In addition, I did project-related purchases. Due to the dynamic growth of EuroSort, I have gradually started to concentrate and professionalize myself more in the field of purchasing. Partly because the organization feels great, from which we get satisfaction together, this is a huge stimulus to develop myself further and to keep the enthusiasm high. This is an advantage of EuroSort for me!
