Spring is around the corner

Time does not stand still! Before you know it, it is March and our mind slowly goes to spring with at least longer days again.
At Continent we are not standing still either. During the past year we took big steps with our new automation package. Orders can now be entered fully automated, and we will continue to roll this out in 2015. In addition, we are working on other improvements in the area of automation.

In 2015 we will put a lot of our focus on our marketing. Continent will make itself heard in 2015. This means that among other things we will put our company film on-line soon. We are a little too late to contend for an Oscar, but I have to say that this has turned out to be a very nice film. You will also hear from us in other ways.

With this newsletter we will again inform you about what is going on at Continent.
You can read for example about the BHV course that all Continent employees successfully completed. From a condition perspective, it is also going well at Continent. With the necessary efforts, a group of employees participated in the local Montferland run.
Our Peter Hulshorst is a big fan of sporting. He and his wife will participate in climbing the Mont Ventoux during the Tristan Hoffman challenge.

When in 2014 the Social Accord was concluded between our government and the employer organizations regarding the Participation Act, we took this very serious at Continent. In the Participation Act, employers agreed to create extra jobs for people with a disability. In this context, at the end of 2014 Brian and Lars joined Continent as assistant warehouse employees. These two hardworking youngsters who love to work have a positive outlook on life, but every now and then they need an extra push. In this way we would like to contribute to society.
From an economic perspective, it looks like we are gradually moving forward in Europe, and a lot of people are increasingly positive.

If it is up to us, let spring come!

Why BHV – Because BHV

Each year there are accidents in the workplace in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, some of these accidents are fatal.
The most important reason to opt for emergency services is of course the safety of employees, visitors and clients.
In case of accidents or emergencies, you must respond quickly to get the people who are present in the company to safety.

That is why we decided to offer this training within our company. We believe these two partial day sessions were very instructive, and in response we have decided to purchase an AED [Automatic External Defibrillator] device. Of course there were a few hilarious moments, but ultimately it was a very successful day.

Hello everyone!

I was asked to write an article about my charity efforts. Let me first introduce myself. My name is Peter Hulshorst, I am 43 years old, and together with my wife Miranda we have two daughters. I'm working at Continent since 2003, where I can put my energy and passion for logistics and transportation in my work. In my free time, I am very active in sports such as squash, horseback riding and biking.

Last year I met someone who had participated in the charity “The Tristan Hoffman Challenge” (kanjers voor kanjers), this charity works on behalf of children for whom sporting is not a regular activity. Being a sportsman myself, this initiative was very dear to my heart. This resulted in that on 26 June 2015, together with my wife Miranda, I will participate in “The Tristan Hoffman Challenge” to bike to the top of the Mont Ventoux. This giant of the Provence is also known as the Windy Mountain or the “Bald Mountain”. For example, at some point a wind speed was measured of up to 300 km/hour, measured at the top of the mountain.
The start of the Tristan Hoffman Challenge is in Bédoin, at an elevation of 283 metres, and lies 21.4km from the top. The top of the Mont Ventoux is at 1912 metres, the height difference is 1629 meters. The average climb percentage is 7.6%. On 1 March the first training will start, and we will have a series of joint trainings in order to be ready on 26 June for the ride to the top. My goal is to collect as much money as possible for the children who need it so badly. If this initiative appeals to you like it does to me, you can support me as “topper” by sending a donation to the link below; every Euro is welcome.

It started as a joke……..

As colleagues of Continent we are not only taking on this from a business perspective, but also athletically! After having trained for a couple of months, on 7 December we were ready for this super-organised Montferlandrun.

We finished off the day with a delicious stamppot [mashed potatoes and vegetables] buffet.
