Annual event week

Last week we had our annual event week at the headquarters in Tegelen. More than 200 customers, subcontractors and sales representatives were welcomed to meet with peers and to discuss trending topics, challenges in transportation and the changing market situation. Our Next Generation Logistics program, which focusses on our products, professionals, business systems and customer & partner communities, was on the agenda during the event. On our Ewals plaza visitors could experiment with flying a drone on a circuit and try our own virtual Ewals escape room.

Sales event
On Tuesday the event week started off with a Sales event to update our European sales force on internal developments. In the afternoon they were challenged to cooperate in a workshop on product thinking in 'movies theme'. Afterwards a 'blue carpet' led them to the evening awards where teams divided in three categories won Oscars for their efforts in the workshop.


Customer day
At the annual Customer day on Wednesday we welcomed around 60 customers with an opening lunch. Guest speaker Willemijn Westerlaken of TLN Brussels gave an update on European legislation, Sophie Punte of Smart Freight Centre elaborated on Smart Freight Leadership towards an efficient and low emissions global freight sector and finally Pieter Bastiaansen of VDL Bus Chassis explored the road to e-Mobility. Afterwards ideas were shared over a standing dinner.

Subcontractor day
Our subcontractors are in the middle of challenging market developments, so some interesting discussions followed during the presentation on European legislation from Willemijn Westerlaken. After lunch, workshops on planning, driver communication, load securing and the Mega Huckepack XLS were given. Outside there were demonstrations of our latest equipment, where especially our brand new Scania truck drew lots of attention.
