Cindy, Head of Tender Pricing Ocean Freight
I have grown personally with this job, and I’m very thankful for getting the opportunity to be a part of such a great team.
Since then, Cindy has taken on every challenge that’s come her way over the last 14 years. She’s grown tremendously in her field and now manages tender pricing in DB Schenker’s Ocean Freight Department.
“My daily work involves managing the internal coordination for ocean tenders,” Cindy says, “and aligning our strategy with management to gain more business and to keep growth at the forefront for DB Schenker.”
Managing Pandemic-Related Constraints
During the pandemic, Cindy—like many others—had to solve problems that she’s never faced before. Communication with customers and carriers became more complex and challenging, for example, with face-to-face communication no longer possible.
Cindy and her team had to find solutions to stay in contact with the customers, solve their problems, and continue to provide a high-quality service. Later in the pandemic, a lack of ocean containers and shipping capacity created further challenges.
Ready to face those issues, Cindy and her team members worked hard to keep their customers’ freight moving. “We’re developing forecasts to help carriers hold enough containers to maintain a high quality of service for our customers,” she says.
Regardless of business conditions or outside events, Cindy’s team dedicates much of its time and effort to finding the best solutions for DB Schenker’s customers. Every single container and every happy customer becomes a win, and a driver of her excitement and passion for being a part of the organization.
The DB Schenker Logo
Every time Cindy passes a DB Schenker logo, she cannot resist but to do one thing: to take a picture. She’s not only absolutely passionate about the DB Schenker logo but also continues to display herself as a great example of engagement and commitment – especially during the challenging times caused by the pandemic.
“I love my job. DB Schenker gives me many opportunities to develop myself,” Cindy says. “The company has shown me how to work, how to be passionate about my job, and how to become professional. And for all that, the logo is a symbol for me.”
We couldn’t be prouder of Cindy for successfully taking on these challenges and responsibilities during this period of uncertainty. Well done Cindy for standing up and taking charge! We are rooting for you and supporting you as you advance in your career.
