Interview Master student
How did you get your position/internship at the company?
Originally I was going to do an internship at a logistics service provider, but this had to be cancelled last minute due to circumstances within the company. This caused me some problems because I still wanted to write my master thesis at a company. Then I visited S&L, with which I also have good contact, where we started looking for interesting partners of S&L together. Eventually we ended up at DAF where an old S&L employee is active as a commodity manager within the purchasing department. After a nice conversation, we made appointments and before I knew it, I was active at DAF within a month.
What did your job entail?
As an intern at PG2, purchasing department 2, I researched the possibilities of implementing returnable transport packaging for DAF Brazil (Paccar Brazil).
How did Asset | Strategy & Logistics help you?
S&L made it possible for me to find a nice company to write my master thesis in a short period of time. This would certainly not have been possible without S&L.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment I'm working on the last bits of my thesis where I'm describing my developed framework to determine when and when to implement pool packaging for products/parts.
