At Vanderlande, we excel at moving goods. Every day, this totals millions of: suitcases at airports (Atlanta Airport, London Heathrow, Hong Kong International Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Shanghai Pudong International Airport); packages for parcel companies (UPS, Deutsche Post DHL, TNT, FedEx, SF Express); and items for global e-commerce companies (Amazon, Zalando). We build the solutions and make them work. Whatever the challenge is; it all requires world-class engineering.
What we do
Our electrical, mechanical, control system and other engineers play vital roles in first designing – and then installing – the systems that meet our customers’ needs. This extends from system architecture to practical integration, and all of the steps in between. As we are involved in a wide range of projects, this implies a large diversity in both tasks and areas of specialty.
Sometimes the focus will be up front, on design. On other occasions, it will be further downstream, in subsystem installation, process integration or stress testing. A number of functions are performed at our corporate headquarters, while others are conducted on location. Some of our engineers get to spend 80% of their time on the road, but for others this figure is much less.
In all cases, practical performance and reliability are the ultimate goals, and the technical challenges can be fascinating. For example, building a new baggage handling system in a confined space, without interrupting the old system. Or integrating new technologies into a warehousing system that handles both large and small products. Or setting up a postal system that is larger, better, faster, more reliable and accurate, and less expensive than that of the competition.
What about you?
To achieve these goals, there is no standard blueprint. If you work in our engineering teams, you are expected not only to meet high professional standards, but also adapt easily to changing situations. You must also enjoy challenges, relish thinking outside the box, value your colleagues’ input and help one another in realising your individual potential.
If that sounds like the type of person you are, then we can offer you an adventurous environment in which rapid growth and systematic innovation go hand in hand. In addition, numerous personal development opportunities (particularly in Europe, Asia and North America) will present themselves to you.
It will be your responsibility to grab these with both hands, while seeing the world and developing your professional skills. The latter is a must, because we have a reputation as the best employer in our field and we believe that requires the best employees in the field – you.
