Shipping lines are a very specific area of the international cargo industry in that they are a key provider to the freight forwarding sector, as well as having direct dealings with the import/export markets.
Personnel in this challenging area need to understand all the detailed associated infrastructure relating to flat racks, high cubes, reefers and many more variations of containers. They also need to be aware of the demands of scheduling with regard to the loading and unloading of vessels, as well as specialised documentation procedures.
Shipping lines' personnel also need to have an understanding of customs and quarantine regulations that affect the shipping lines' business.
These various demands mean that there are numerous employment opportunities, from vessel operations, import or export co ordination and trade management.
ImpEx Personnel's consultants have direct shipping lines experience. This makes us well placed to serve the needs of both employers and employees in this specialist area.
