Paul Wortelboer has added two new roles to his responsibilities at Dutch logistics provider, Koopman Logistics. Wortelboer, who has been managing director of the Koopman Car Terminal Amsterdam since 2016, has now also taken charge of Koopman Automotive Solutions in Born and Dent Art Automotive Solutions in Vilvoorde, Belgium, following the departure of Guy van Gaever who is leaving the company after four years.

"Paul Wortelboer is the right person to further develop our Born branch and to take charge of Dent Art Automotive Solutions in Vilvoorde,” said Jon Kuiper, CEO of Koopman Logistics. “With this, our three automotive compounds are placed under one management.”

The Born terminal provides integrated services including distribution from Germany and Eastern Europe as well as handling of vehicles arriving from Belgian and Dutch ports for the German market. The Dent Art operation in Vilvoorde provides repair and restoration services to vehicles, which are then moved on by Koopman Autotransport.

Wortelboer, who has a wide range of experience in the finished vehicle sector, previously worked at Athlon Car Lease Nederland and Volkswagen Pon Financial Services.

"I have now settled at this beautiful organisation, and it is great to work with the teams at different locations, to work towards even more efficiency of each single terminal and more efficient cooperation between our terminals,” said Wortelboer. “This will undoubtedly lead to a better service because that is [what] Koopman stands for. I am very excited about it."

Kuiper added that the layout of its terminal in Born had already been optimised and expanded. "We have already taken important steps on the various compounds; with Paul Wortelboer we continue on the road," he said.

The latest news follows the recent appointment of Maurice de Wilde in the new role of chief financial officer at Koopman Logistics.
