Just introduce: Maurice van der Poort

Maurice van der Poort RVJ CI

Do you already know Maurice van der Poort? Maurice took the international wholesale trade course, but pretty soon after completing this he headed in a completely different direction. Maurice van der Poort (39) followed in his father’s footsteps and became a (AGRI) cargo inspector about 20 years ago.

Because he has been around in the industry since 2005, RVJ-CI is not an unknown player in the market. Initially, he was salaried, but continued as a self-employed person over five years ago. As such, he worked for the larger inspection companies and was also for quite some time working for us at RVJ Cargo Inspections. As a ZZP’er you are often assigned on an irregular basis on night or weekend shifts. One of the reasons he decided to look for a permanent job. He was offered that opportunity by RVJ Cargo Inspections. He decided to accept it. Structure and permanence beckoned. But the real trigger?

RVJ-CI is a young and dynamic company with a lot going on, where employees get the chance to think and build. It is a small company with short lines of communication. He also likes that. He also likes the diversity, because he can work from Rotterdam, Belgium and Germany as well as from Amsterdam. That makes it extra fun for him.

Maurice was able to start work immediately, as he is fully qualified. In fact, during his career, he was retrained by the Shipping and Transport College. He also obtained all possible certificates, including those from IFIA, so that he can start work as a calibrator and inspector of dry and liquid cargoes.

What he likes about the work? The diversity. Going to a different location every day. Always learning new things. No drudgery of doing the same job every day. This is another reason why he finds RVJ-CI so interesting: he can contribute at different locations. Arranging things, documenting, keeping track. It gives responsibility.

And what really makes him happy? When a sea boat arrives and all the initial inspections have been carried out, with food safety requirements being a high priority, he can give the green light to the stevedoring company so they can then start unloading the boat. All this gives him the satisfaction of having done his bit.

And outside working hours? Then he enjoys running in nature or spending time with his family.
