DS Smith

”The way we view Schotpoort, they are much more than a carrier. We really experience them as a logistics service provider in the broadest sense, a partner.”

DS Smith & Schotpoort

Ron Verkade – Supply Chain Manager Benelux – has worked at DS Smith Packaging for over 17 years. During that time he developed a good eye for the logistic flows in the Benelux.

“The prompt arrival/delivery of goods in excellent condition is something that over the years has gone from a speciality to the set standard for us. What makes the difference for us is the added value that a logistical partner can offer.”

”Schotpoort is a logistical service provider that goes the extra mile for both the paper and the packaging companies that comprise DS Smith. Not only do they provide the transportation of our goods, but they also take care of the unloading and administration of the rolls of paper, stacking a pallet of corrugated cardboard or supplying extra loaders if necessary.”

“For us, a good logistical partner does not only help us think of new possibilities or solutions, but they also execute the ideas and put them into practice,” says Ron Verkade. “Even during the weekends we can rely on them, that is because the employees share each other’s private numbers, so we are always able to reach out to someone from Schotpoort. That is the service we have come to expect and which also benefits our clients.”
