VACANCY: Quality Control Inspector (full-time)

Do you have an eye for detail and does working accurately come natural to you? Are you a straightforward person and do you like to select the best fruit for the customer? Are you able to switch quickly in an action-packed and dynamic environment? Then Cool Port Packing Rotterdam is looking for you! 

Our goal is to provide our customer with the best fruit and vegetables, so that the consumer can enjoy their health benefits. The inspector plays an important role in this process, as you will monitor the quality of all products.

From our sustainable and modern warehouse in the Waal-Eemshaven in Rotterdam, you will be inspecting the products for our quality standards as soon as they arrive. You remove anything that does not meet our standards and you analyse if the ripening process meets the requirements specified. You enter the details of your inspection into our system to produce an inspection report.

For each shipment, you will discuss any deviations in quality with the account manager (the customer has 1 point of contact with us). Deviations in the planning will be discussed with the coordinator. In addition, you also communicate with the suppliers and instruct our own team leaders on how to apply the quality requirements. Finally, you are in charge of the exit control for all packed products.

As an inspector you are capable of dealing with stress, you are solution-oriented, and you intervene where necessary. You can quickly assess costs and make careful choices in consultation with your colleagues. To you, teamwork means that you think about any improvements to the process in order for us – as a team effort – to ensure that our products fully meet the wishes of the customer. You can start immediately in this fun, challenging position! 


The team works hard, is enthusiastic, and mainly consists of Polish packing employees and team leaders, 3 skilled account managers, an enthusiastic coordinator, and an experienced warehouse manager. You are accountable to the general manager involved. The good-natured director of the Maasdijk head office regularly visits us.
