New Central Service Center in Tri-City will handle a variety of tasks for ONE’s European operations.
Ocean Network Express is a major new global container shipping company that emerged from the legacy of three Japanese liner carriers: Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd (“K” Line), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Co., Ltd (MOL) and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).
With the global headquarters in Singapore and the combined capacity of container fleets at 1 440,000 TEU, the company will cover over 100 countries, including more than 200 key ports from around the world.
Currently, the Central Service Center in Gdańsk employs 120 people. “There are many professionals in logistics and shipping on the market here, which will enable us to provide a high level of service to our customers”, said Mr. Reiner Zimbalski, Director of the Central Service Center in Gdańsk, during the official opening in August 2018.
While hiring, the company focused on analytical and language skills, higher education (especially experience in the logistics industry) and knowledge of the maritime sector.
The center in Gdańsk will be the key part of ONE’s operations and is handling a variety of supporting tasks for Europe, such as equipment (container) management, plus maintenance and repair. Port Operations in Gdańsk communicates with the terminals in the European ports to arrange that all containers are loaded on the right vessel and sent to the correct destination.
