Our China office was opened in Beijing on 1 January 2003. I was its very first employee, helping to get the operation up and running and established in this new market.
Time has flown, and much has changed, since those early days, but my commitment and enjoyment remains the same.
From day one I learnt that the business encourages honesty and personal development, fostering an environment where employees aren’t afraid to ask questions and are encouraged to learn from any mistakes. This attitude is key to building a business that enjoys a reputation for reliability and transparency, and is still going strong after 70 years.
The job can be challenging, but we thrive on challenges – often making the seemingly impossible possible. We achieve this by being a team, bonded by the company vision of improving the nature of shipping.
