Previous experience in shipping is not required. We provide on-the-job training for each position.
It’s like we are in the middle of a giant puzzle making sure that all the pieces fit together perfectly. It is our task to ensure that all booked containers are scheduled on the ship. We keep the cargo moving, we maintain good contact with various ship operators, terminals and local authorities and we are the first point of contact for internal and external customers in case there are questions about cargo.
It takes a lot of cash to keep more than 500 giant vessels running 24/7 around the world. In collections we make sure the company is well-powered with cash, by ensuring our partners pay for our services on time. A collector plays a key role as a front-line intermediary, negotiator, investigator, problem solver and as a guardian of the company’s financial security.
People with a non-standard way of thinking have an opportunity to resolve various disputes and objections and experience all 50 shades of customers emotions regarding invoice queries. Dispute team is able to scan anyone and always stand on the side of truth. No matter if it’s the client or a CMA CGM colleague, they can count on our support.
Car sharing, scooter lending…container renting?! Yes, you read it correctly! Containers can be rented too. But how to return them, you may ask? Well, this is where our team comes to action! We plan, we monitor, we communicate, and we save everyone’s time and money by navigating containers all around the world.
Maintenance & Repair
Would you dump your car if it had a single dent on the door? We believe you’d try to fix it by taking it to repair shop. Did you know that one rusty hole on a container wall or floor doesn’t mean that it has to be taken out of service? Containers can last up to 30 or more years if maintained properly. Our team evaluates the condition of containers and offers repair solutions.
Like with passengers in connecting flights, containers also change ships to reach their destination. Our team makes sure that all containers are being correctly loaded and unloaded from one vessel to another, so the owners could get their goods even on another side of the planet without any stress and delays. Unlike when you had to run to your plane in Frankfurt airport from one terminal to another within 10 minutes.
Before your trip abroad, you always make sure that your suitcase is packed and all travel documents are prepared, so the journey would be free from anxiety. Same way works our Cargo Readiness squad. We are the ones who make sure that containers are ready to catch the voyage, we communicate with the ship crew, so everything goes pitch perfect and stress free.
Our team has a variety of tasks. The company’s cash flow is directly dependent on us ensuring the timely and accurate invoicing for our customers. The adrenaline kicks in even more when we help make sure that hazardous cargo makes it safely to the vessels or specific customer cargo reaches the desired destinations. We are here for support!
