On November 6th, the Logistics Plus Belgium team held a special dinner party in honor of long-time employee Hilde Van De Woestyne. In 1993, Hilde joined Ivo Van Mechelen at what was then called Cantabrico Belgium, to “help out with a little bit of this and that.” Helping with “this and that” quickly turned into doing a little bit of everything, ranging from human resources, to accounting, to every aspect of freight forwarding.
We are extremely happy that now, 25 years later, and with Cantabrico having long since become part of the LP family, Hilde is still going strong and she continues to do a “little bit of this and that.” The Logistics Plus Belgium team calls Hilde the backbone of the Antwerp office. Jim Berlin, CEO of Logistics Plus said, “Hilde represents the true spirit of Logistics Plus. She does whatever it takes to ensure our success and we are grateful for her many years of service to us, and to our dear friend Ivo.”
Dr. -Ing. Patric Drewes, CEO of Logistics Plus Europe added, “People are the greatest asset of our company. Hilde’s loyalty and dedication over the past 25 years has set the culture of a resourceful, team-driven attitude toward problem-solving. We are humbled by her outstanding support and hard work and we look forward to the future.”
At the celebration, the Belgium team gave Hilde a commemorative frame signed by many colleagues from the Logistics Plus Global Headquarters and our Antwerp and Bremen offices. This frame was a small token of appreciation from the many people who know and value Hilde for everything she’s done over the past 25 years.
A huge congratulations to Hilde Van De Woestyne on an amazing 25 years and counting!
