Jan de Rijk Logistics is participating in a project with the Ministry of Defense to explore the possibilities of exchanging personnel and knowledge.

Last week, staff from this logistics service provider participated in a military exercise in Germany.

During this exercise, we looked at how Jan de Rijk staff can be effectively deployed within the armed forces.
In the second half of 2018 personnel from the Defense department will cooperate within the organization of Jan de Rijk Logistics.

In the context of ‘the adaptive armed forces’, The Ministry of Defense, together with Jan de Rijk Logistics, DSV, Nijhof-Wassink and Van der Vlist, is investigating how the armed forces can cooperate more flexibly and sustainably.
The goal is to be able to exchange personnel from the business community and the Ministry of Defense at peak moments.
In this way, flexibility and capacity are increased and sustainable employability is guaranteed.

The project started in June
