Elisabeth, Truck Driver
Meeting New People
Elisabeth also loves to meet new people as she goes about her workday. Because she delivers to many of the same customers regularly, Elisabeth has formed friendships with many of the people she interacts with.
For example, one customer always offers her a “to go” cup of coffee. One time during the warmest summer months, the same customer brought her some ice cream.
These interactions with customers really brighten up my day
Bigger is Better
A DB Schenker employee for the last 40 years, Eddy started with the company at the age of 17 and was responsible for washing the cars, vans, and trucks at its hub in the Netherlands. Five years later, Eddy become a certified commercial truck driver.
Today, Eddy drives the Actros with 15 to 20 tons of capacity from Tilburg to other cities in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. One special delivery he fondly remembers is the transport of half of a helicopter for the Dutch Army.
Educating Up-and-Coming Transportation Pros
For three years now, Eddy has been sharing his truck driving experience with younger employees at DB Schenker. He trains them on how to drive a truck, load a truck, and drive safely in traffic.
I really like to share my knowledge and my enthusiasm with the younger people
Eddy, Truck Driver
Eddy especially likes discussing with them the critical importance of safety and patience behind the wheel. “You have to be very patient when you’re on the road; safety is of utmost importance.”
On the Road Again
Anytime there are now younger colleagues to train, Eddy is happy to be on the road again. And the more challenges that come his way, the more he enjoys this very important position within the DB Schenker logistics ecosystem. Elisabeth also has her eye on a commercial truck driving license, which would fulfill a dream she’s had since she was a child: driving a big truck. Fingers crossed for your next chapter, Elisabeth!
We want to thank both of our drivers for being on the road for us almost every day and for serving an extremely important role in our company. We appreciate both of you.
