About TBA

Working at TBA Group

Are you interested in solving complex logistic challenges and see your solution being applied in a real operating terminal? Our passion is to make traffic flows in large hubs run as smoothly as possible. We use state-of-the-art simulation models – proven and implemented globally – to achieve the best terminal performance for our international clients. We come up with solutions such as applying better assignment algorithms to decrease waiting queues, or better job selection procedures to reduce the equipment driving distances. Every terminal has its own unique characteristics which makes every project a different logistical challenge to solve.

TBA’s software for automated container equipment is market leading and we work on various R&D initiatives to stay at the forefront of developments in the port and warehouse industry. These initiatives are often supported by students. We mostly work with students with a background in Operations Research, Engineering or Computer science, but we are also inviting students to apply, who have affinity with simulation and modelling of logistic processes.

There will be opportunities to travel and work abroad due to the international character of our business. We are a firm believer that training is an essential part to keep on improving. We have our own Academy to ensure that all the employees are up-to-date with the latest developments in the port business.
