New member of staff Jake Powell completes work experience at a container depot
On the week of Monday 5th December 2016 Jake Powell went to work for a week with Direct Container Repairs to learn more about how container depots work and the industry in general.
Direct Container Repairs is a container depot and repair facility at Gravesend, Kent and we regular store shipping containers with them doing business regularly. They store many containers in their depot and offer various repairs, depot and conversion services such as steam cleaning containers, container painting, conversions, repairing and more. It was a great opportunity for Jake to learn first hand about containers and the depot process.
Throughout the week Jake steam cleaned containers, did minor repairs, painted containers and even had the opportunity to sit (with the driver) in a stacker truck whilst offloading and stacking a shipping container.
Jake joined us a few months ago and since has been in an admin and sales position. We have photos below of Jake working hard at DCR and also a video he filmed of a shipping container being offloaded and placed into position:
