EUROGATE Wilhelmshaven Plans to Increase Labor Force

EUROGATE Wilhelmshaven Plans to Increase Labor Force

EUROGATE has reported sustained growth at Wilhelmshaven Port for nearly four months now. This is due in part to two major alliances that have been calling at the container terminal in Wilhelmshaven, causing the monthly container throughput on liner services to double since May. Because of this, an extensive recruitment program foresees increasing the number of employees at EUROGATE’s Wilhelmshaven location from 400 at present to 600. With some of the largest container ships in the world calling the port, this equates to higher handling volumes, which terminal operators need to be able to clear quickly and efficiently. To achieve this, container terminal operators will require more operational staff in Wilhelmshaven over the next two years.

Mikkel Andersen, Managing Director of EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven said, “Since the consolidation from four to three major alliances, our monthly handling figures have doubled and we are seeing a significantly increased level of interest in EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven both regionally and supraregionally. Now we have to chart the course for the future and strengthen our competitiveness. Compared to other port locations, Wilhelmshaven is a young port with a very young container terminal. The current consolidation process among the shipping lines and the resulting processes of change in the market provide EUROGATE with the opportunity in Wilhelmshaven to establish ourselves as a first-class container terminal. This is an opportunity we want to and must grasp. We are therefore building up our future capabilities in a difficult competitive environment.”

“The collaboration with the Employment Agency has in the past been an important factor when recruiting and qualifying personnel. Obviously, we want to continue to actively leverage this recruitment channel. We are looking to fill all manner of operational positions. Applicants should basically be prepared to undertake any operational task at the port, from operating large handling equipment to physically demanding lashing,” Mr. Andersen said.
