In relation with March 8 and the celebration of International Women’s Day, and to show its commitment to promote gender equality and opportunities by reevaluating the role of women in port activities, Katoen Natie TCP illuminated its gantry cranes and logistics warehouses with violet lights during the whole month of March 2021.
Since the company opened in 2001, and through all these years, Katoen Natie Terminal Cuenca del Plata has kept in place gender equality policies to give the same opportunities to women or men to access a job in TCP.
Currently we have women working in all sectors of the company, with different levels of responsibility.
These positions go from management jobs, as in our Human Resources and HSEQ Departments, to the most diverse operational functions, such as stevedoring or driving heavy machinery to transport containers.
The company also applies gender equality for salaries or working hours; women are working at TCP in all shifts.
This gender equality policy implies that the company must maintain an adequate infrastructure considering the presence of both genders in all shifts and all sectors: shower rooms, dressing rooms, restrooms, etc.
Considering the celebration of International Women’s day on March 8 each year, Katoen Natie TCP is constantly renovating its commitment to improve these policies, allowing the fullest opportunities to develop women’s work in the different tasks carried out at the specialized container terminal, which have historically been associated with strong masculine workers.
Since March 8 until the end of the month each year, the Specialized Container Terminal shall be glowing in violet to honor women working at the port, and every woman in the country.
