I, too, was happy about our conversations. It was a highlight of the past week, because you are always positive and optimistic, however you are not lacking a certain level of consequence. As said, it would be great if we could incorporate this new style with your help.

Dear Alfred, one hour ago I got home safely! It was a very intense but helpful weekend for me!
Thank you for helping me to help myself!
To stay or to go? What to do? So many questions, so many feelings. They were threatening to tear me apart. It felt so good to talk about them, being asked the right questions. Comprehensive, from different points of view. During the time of my separation Alfred was there for me as well, gave me counsel, moderating, fair and competent. Not only because of that I appreciate Alfred and am much obliged. Because it is good, the way it is now. Good for everybody involved, that is my conviction.
There is one very important point for me. That is why I write you again: I believe that what you are doing for the company Obermann is on point. Since you are here, I see that something is happening… and, in my opinion, it is changing in the right direction. You are a great person!
Head of Human Resources
Early on it showed that Mr Rensen is well interlinked in politics, economics and society and
knows how to
bring people from different fields together. His exceptionally multifaceted CV including most
industry sectors helps him to see positions from different angles. This enriches a discourse
Dean of studies Business Economics & Security Management
Through a project initiated by the province of Gelderland, I came into contact with Albema. Their
on the logistics sector really appealed to me and this led to a renewed collaboration within
logistics project. This project required support from both the Dutch and German (regional)
With their extensive network (skills), Albema has opened many political doors for us in a short
of time. Their years of (logistical) experience and persuasiveness have even brought the project
attention of the highest regional and national ministries in Germany. Albema is therefore very
making interpersonal connections and bringing people together.
Intersnack Nederland B.V.
During the last three years HBCB was involved in the execution of the Euregio project tRHEINco.
The aim of tRHEINco was to establish a modal shift from transport via road to water for continental cargo. Transport via water has already established a strong market position for maritime cargo but the transport of continental cargo happens almost entirely via road.
Transport via water is more environmental friendly as transport via roads, so a lot can be gained in this respect by a modal shift from road to water.
HBCB was in charge of the work to detect possibilities for this modal shift and organize a pilot to show that transport of continental cargo via water is viable. The aspects require a thorough insight in the market of continental cargo and the required transports.
To proceed in this HBCB contacted Mr Alfred Rensen of Albema. Albema accepted a commission to help tRHEINco in this respect. It proved to be that Mr Alfred Rensen has a long standing know how and experience in shippers and transport of continental cargo across Europe. He has an extensive network therein and this resulted in the facts that he not only found a relevant company (Aviko at Steenderen) to cooperate but also made it possible that a pilot was actually organized to demonstrate that this transport via water is feasible.
Without the assistance of Mr Alfred Rensen and his hands on know how of shippers, transport of
continental cargo and possibilities for modal shift it would have been very difficult to succeed
