Agile manier van werken
Diverse werkomgeving


Between 2015-2018 Vopak developed a new Terminal Management System (TMS) with a focus on cloud and mobile. 6 terminals are already operating the new TMS. All other terminals (40+) will follow over the coming 2 years (2020-2021). For the terminals where the new system is implemented, the employees have 24/7 real time insight into the terminals' logistics processes, from anywhere in the world, using a tablet or smartphone. This new situation will also mean that the user experience needs to be intuitive and consistent. The quality of our operational decision making will be better in case information is presented clearly over all channels. Your challenge is to improve customer journeys while we are building our Agile organization.
