The gateway to a succesful career

Over the years, Ocean Gate Logistics has established itself as a reliable partner in the international transport sector. With steady growth over the last 18 years, we have clearly differentiated ourselves as experts in various sectors, including frozen, fresh, and refrigerated products, general cargo, and project cargo.

As a dynamic company, we are continuously evolving and growing, which is why we are looking for an experienced freight forwarder to strengthen our team.

You can handle it

You will be responsible for arranging sea freight, pre- and post-transport, and overseeing all aspects of the entire logistics process. At Ocean Gate Logistics, after the necessary training and team support, you will be responsible for end-to-end monitoring and handling of export and import files for various customers and destinations. You will coordinate all shipments and customs formalities and manage the complete administrative processing of the files.

You enjoy diving deep into a file and give your best until shipments are delivered perfectly to their destination.
