Shipping alliances have increased the need for more workers at Eurogate Wilhelmshaven after doubling monthly container throughput on liner services since May, 2017.
The number of operational staff at Germany's only deep-water container terminal will rise from 400 to 600 over the next two years.
Eurogate’s search for suitable candidates will start imminently and includes those that are currently unemployed, in or around the region of Wilhelmshaven in Germany.
Mikkel Andersen, Managing Director of Eurogate Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven, said: “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.”
