Knowledge Organization

The employees in our logistics knowledge organization make all the difference. That is why we invest more than 3 percent of our total wage bill in education and training. In our pursuit of operational excellence and continuous improvement according to the Lean Six Sigma method, the focus is on continuous learning. Stimulating a growth mindset is essential in this. For example, Oldenburger|Fritom organizes several personal leadership trainings a year. At the same time, we work closely with regional educational institutions to share knowledge and to get to know our colleagues of tomorrow.

Oldenburger|Fritom and the Lean Six Sigma method.

Lean Six Sigma method

The Lean Six Sigma method is the common theme throughout the business operation of Oldenburger|Fritom. Mastering this method is a combination of theory and its application in our day-to-day business operations. This combination shows in the different Lean Six Sigma levels and accompanying belt certification:

  • Master Black Belt
  • Black Belt
  • Green Belt
  • Orange Belt
  • Yellow Belt

The highest level that can be achieved within Lean Six Sigma is Master Black Belt. The Lean Master of Oldenburger|Fritom is our in-house expert. He is responsible for the technical supervision of the method within our organization. He also makes sure we are self-sufficient in developing Lean Six Sigma knowledge and training.

Oldenburger|Fritom’s knowledge center revolves around our Black Belts, Green Belts, Orange Belts and Yellow Belts. They have the logistics expertise when it comes to transportation, warehousing and supply chain management. Our supply chain engineers can analyze each and every detail desired of your logistics processes. They ensure an optimal and complete supply chain by professionally integrating all the successive chains.


Growth mindset vs fixed mindset

We create the right balance between personal development and collective ambition by organizing several training sessions in personal leadership a year. During these training sessions our employees become more aware of their mindset by gaining insight on how the brain works. We stimulate the growth mindset in our company. The training sessions are focused on:

  • Customer focus
  • Communication
  • Organizational commitment
  • Being open to change
Oldenburger|Fritom organizes training sessions in personal leadership in Veendam and stimulates the growth mindset.

Sharing knowledge

Oldenburger|Fritom profiles itself emphatically as a logistics knowledge organization. We work closely together with regional educational institutions. Based on our focus on continuous learning, various colleagues follow a training at these educational institutions in addition to their work. Furthermore, our partnership with these educational institutions is aimed at exchanging knowledge. For example, we regularly organize company visits for students and we also regularly provide guest lectures. We also offer students from various logistics courses the opportunity to do an internship with us. In this way, Oldenburger|Fritom gets to know its colleagues of tomorrow at an early stage. Something that is much appreciated by both sides.
