Description of the assignment

Vanderlande is a leading supplier of logistic automation solutions for airports, parcel centers and warehouses.

Within BU Warehouse Solutions we focus on the Food, Fashion and General Merchandise Segment. This assignment takes place in the food segment where we deliver systems for case and item picking for food retailers. Our customers include: Albert Heijn, WalMart, Lidl, Netto and LeClerc. 

The food manufacturing segment includes companies like Coca Cola, Nestlé, Pepsico, Unilever, Danone, Mars and Kraft Heinz. At the moment this is not a focus area of Vanderlande since these companies are mainly handling pallets in their warehouses.
