Cosmopolitan and multicultural entrepreneurship
The more diverse we are, the more viewpoints and ideas we can put together, the better we think and the more innovative our ideas are. We are dedicated to fostering local content and partnerships for a long-term, environmentally responsible business with our customers. The mindset behind our company is the values and goals that all of us at Riverlake have steadily nurtured over the years.
If you are inspired by our entrepreneurial spirit and want to start your journey with us, then please send us a few lines with your ideas and what you think we can do together.
We are one team.
Riverlake has a long history and since its inception a flat management style. When we ask our employees what they feel about Riverlake, they think of flexibility, openness, understanding, adaptability and integrity.
Each of us is an ambassador of the company. We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and transparency that have always made our reputation. We are respectful, trustworthy, and keep a fair and irreproachable behaviour.
Dedicated to our customers, we want to develop & create new fields of activity, all of which oriented towards the maritime industry.
Riverlake is cosmopolitan and has a multicultural entrepreneurship with a broad range of languages and nationalities. Compassion and empathy are very much a part of the company’s culture. Everyone is heard and every voice is respected.
You do not work for Riverlake, you work with Riverlake.
Riverlake employees are all liberty to develop the business they are responsible for. The management is not interventionist, to the contrary, it is a broad and supportive one.
To do better and because we care about you, we do as much as we can for your professional and career development. We want you to progress, we want those who want to take on more responsibility to access it. We let people take initiatives and create leads. Our people’s success and future are important for us.
We are experts in shipbroking and shipping, we are experts in building tank storage terminal onshore or offshore, as green as it gets. We understand the vital need to master our business. Leaving no room for improvisation we are meticulous in managing the risks inherent to our activity, to the best of our ability.
The passion and ambition are shared by the team. And shared with our customers.
We are one.
We deeply care about the sea and our environmental commitment is strong, meaning making an effective transition from the traditional use of hydrocarbons alone, to environmentally friendly forms of transport and energy storage. We see the necessity of converting to more sustainable sources of energy like hydro, solar and wind power. We are committed through our sustainable product business lines and green oil storage terminals.
We do what we say: Riverlake shipbrokers are highly involved in the transportation of renewable, organic and bio-based products, such as used cooking oil, other waste products, vegetable oils and waste. We are the leading European Inland transportation company and the number one company in renewable inland shipping.
We do what we say: Riverlake engineers & project managers are actively and concretely promoting a business line focused on green tank terminals. We know how difficult but also easy it can be to reduce the environmental impact of a tank terminal. We hope that we can convince and assist you in achieving our goal: the Green Tank Terminal.
Shaping the future. This is what Riverlake wants.
Riverlake is a pioneer in many respects. Our people reinvent the way of working, create new business lines, bring digitalization. We challenge what already exists.
We are the first specialised barge company, the first to focus on the transport of renewable products such as used cooking oil, biodiesel etc, the first to set up an Africa desk, the first brokers to perform transports in high ice, the first to focus on the development of green terminals, and more.
We don’t shy away from rethinking what we do, we are a close-knit team that seeks to innovate and create forward-looking projects.
Continuous in-house maritime training is part of our DNA. But not only that. We issue regular reports and produce periodic intelligence reports on market developments. These trainings & publications allow us to interact with market players, with our people so to get their opinions and brainstorm new ideas. We challenge established codes and rules
We invest in the digitalization of the business, but in no way to replace humans. In fact, never since we started to get into artificial intelligence, have we had so many people developing this activity. We have established strong and efficient links with the academic community and have close R&D collaborations with leading universities.
Bring forward your ideas. Innovation inspires Riverlake.
