Name: Mads Søndergaard Location: Aarhus, Denmark Title: Import Sales and Operations, Greencarrier Liner Agency Denmark Working at Greencarrier since: June 2018 Describe yourself in three words: Thorough, outspoken and team-player
How would you describe your role? We are a small team of only three individuals in the import operations and sales team in Aarhus, so we all contribute every day in the daily operation. The daily contact with our customers is a big part of my job as well.
What is the most exciting part of your job? I have worked almost 15 years in shipping for various shipping lines in Aarhus, and I have in the past only handled the operational issues – but now I have taken a position where both operation and sales are part of my job, and I think this is really exciting. I really feel that this combination gives an extra dimension to my work life, where I potentially can follow a shipment from the offer is given to the customer - all the way to delivery of the cargo.
What does the Greencarrier’s mindset “Yes, it’s possible!” mean to you? To me it means that you never decline a request from a customer until you have checked all possibilities. That is part of our DNA.
Which are the biggest trends within the industry right now? There is no doubt that sustainability and environmental issues in general are the main topics in shipping as well as in the daily debate these years. Especially within shipping, we meet these international regulations when it comes to oil with low concentration of sulphur etc.
What differs Greencarrier from other employers? Compared to experiences from previous jobs, I really feel that Greencarrier as a company care about the employees. Already in the introduction in the company the HR-department was involved to give me the best possible start – and ever since I have been very impressed.
