SALES MANAGER AIR & OCEAN LOGWIN–STANDORT MALAYSIA

»A COMPANY IS STRONGER IF IT IS BOUND BY LOVE RATHER THAN BY FEAR.«

ALEXANDER S. AND LOGWIN

My personal path with Logwin began with my application for a dual study program in the field of logistics. I had to go through the traditional application process (assessment center + interview) and was eventually accepted.

My dual study program was marked by the diversity of tasks a nationally and internationally operating company like Logwin offers. I got to familiarize myself with business process engineering, sea freight handling in Aschaffenburg, and import/export air freight handling in Stuttgart. My next stations were Kuala Lumpur and Heppenheim in the field of sales coordination.

After my graduation in 2015, I had a permanent position in Inside Sales in Leipzig. In January 2017, I was drawn back to the Far East to Kuala Lumpur, where I continue to provide active support to the Outdoor Sales department.

HOW HAVE YOU DEVELOPED YOUR SKILLS AND STRENGTHS AT LOGWIN? 

Logwin has offered me a great balance between working independently and getting guidance/support from colleagues and management. Moreover, I got to work in an environment that allowed and even encouraged one to make mistakes and learn from them.

The opportunities and support offered includes mentoring, our trainee program, regular trainings/courses, and the trust they have placed in us.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR WORKPLACE?

I love the variety and cosmopolitan nature of the freight forwarding industry itself—having the opportunity to work together in a diverse, multicultural team every day and never having the same daily routine.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO CHANGE IN THE WORLD?

Sustainable thinking and acting in the consumer and corporate worlds.
