Job Description
Our Vision, Our Mission, Our Strategy Our vision is to be The Logistics Company for the World. Our mission – Excellence. Simply Delivered. – is our guiding light. Our Strategy 2020: Focus.Connect.Grow. is our roadmap to the future. We connect people and improve their lives. And we do it by being uncompromisingly customer-centric and delivering excellence day in and day out. By bringing people together and making life simpler – for our customers, our employees, our investors, and our society – we help make the world a better place. Being The Logistics Company for the World goes well beyond our global presence in over 220 countries and territories, or our tireless pioneer spirit when it comes to new markets. It also extends beyond our unique ability to offer a remarkable range of logistics solutions – from mission-critical express deliveries to economical freight transportation, from taking the complexity out of customs to managing the complexity of global supply chains and everything in between. We want to be the logistics company people turn to – the first choice not only for all shipping needs, but also the first choice for career and investment opportunities, and being the global benchmark for responsible business practice.


Why do people call us the world’s most international company? Is it because we operate in more countries than any other logistics provider? Is it because we invented cross border shipping over 45 years ago? Or is it, perhaps, because what we do connects people across the world. And the more we can connect people, the better life on earth becomes.

We love our role in the world and we’re looking for the right people to help us maintain – and grow it. People like you.
