The stevedore: a professional in loading and unloading

SMART HUB Logistics was originally a stevedoring company, at the time the company was known as Spierings Stuwa Logistics. Careful and precise loading and unloading is still part of our logistics services. We see the job of a stevedore as a craft, a profession in which we have a lot of experience and know-how. We therefore give much time and attention to the professional training of our stevedores.

Efficient loading and unloading

The work of a stevedore is, wrongly, not always valued properly. But at SMART HUB Logistics we know from experience how important the loading or unloading of cargo can be. Fast, efficient, and safe loading and unloading can provide the customer with a substantial benefit. In time and in costs.

Container loading

For the best use of container space, our stevedores prepare a loading-plan in advance. Taking weight and size of products into consideration. The stevedores’ objective is to use every cubic centimetre of the container. This does not only save costs, but it also stabilises the load during transport.

Unloading freight

A container, fully stuffed elsewhere in the world, can create an unpleasant surprise the moment our stevedores open the doors. Freight may have fallen over or may fall out of the container. We are prepared for this and take great care to ensure that the goods are unloaded without damage.

SMART HUB Logistics provides stevedoring activities linked to your cargo-flow. We look very closely at which way of working suits your product range best. We do the loading and unloading both in-house and with fixed partners.

Loading and unloading, right next to the container terminal.

Our SMART HUB Logistics site in ‘s-Hertogenbosch has direct access to the bordering inland container terminal. From there, there are daily sailings to and from the seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. Without the need for a truck or a trailer, the containers are placed immediately from the container yard in front of our loading docks, using reach stackers, to be loaded or unloaded by our experienced stevedores.
