Do you enjoy working on complex logistic problems? Do you like simulation modelling or another type of programming? Do you want things to be efficient and run smoothly? At Portwise we are looking for talented logistic engineers to reinforce our team in Rijswijk, The Netherlands.
Since the start of the company, Portwise has always stood at the forefront of simulation as a discipline. Within the container terminal industry, we pioneered the integration of simulation into the entire terminal lifecycle from design to operations.
We have clients in all kinds of businesses, mostly in logistics in general and container terminals in particular. We apply simulation modelling on all kinds of levels, depending on the goal of the study. Our models are the most accurate models available on the market for (container) terminal simulations. We do not offer our models externally, but use them ourselves to undertake research studies for customers who face difficult challenges on design and optimisation of their complex systems.
As a simulation consultant at Portwise, you will be working on consultancy projects aiming at designing and improving the operational efficiency of container and bulk terminals in ports. At Portwise, we clearly distinguish ourselves from other consulting and engineering firms, by applying extensive automation and operational knowledge with the world’s most accurate simulation tools in this field.
We are searching for other people who like us believe that global logistics can be smarter, more efficient and more sustainable!
The work we do is complex, challenging and rewarding. Together with a team of technical professionals, you will work on finding solutions for our clients. Questions like “What is the best design?”, “How can we make most efficient use of our available resources?”, “What are the pros and cons of various handling systems?”, “How can we reduce our carbon footprint?” will be answered.
You will investigate logistical systems and provide answers to such questions by using our world-renowned simulation models. In a typical simulation study you will:
Over the course of a few years, we expect you to develop in more specialized roles, e.g. project manager, expert developer, team coach, based on your preference and skills.
