John Paul is passionate about optimizing processes

Where can we become more efficient? Where is it possible to save time for the customer and for our colleagues? These are the questions John Paul is faced with every day. He is the Team Lead for New Zealand import activities and Singapore BL (bill of lading) creation and ocean events.

I am developing and leading my team members to not only achieve our team goals but also aim to guide and help them to become leaders

“I joined Schenker because the company has been one of the leaders in transport and logistics for almost 150 years. And the most important thing for me is that Schenker values its employees and considers them as their greatest assets. Schenker is very committed in providing the best benefits for them.” For him the greatest achievement this year has been “the team’s realization of a culture of continuous improvement which naturally instills in the team members the desire to become better and strive for excellence. This will benefit not only the team but the whole organization.”

John Paul was also named, performer of the quarter’ for the first three quarters on team lead level. A great achievement and a sign for him that he achieved his targets in the right way and supported the company as best as he could: “I am very proud to have accomplished this because this is the very first time that this happened in the history of Schenker Global Business Services Manila. This is an added motivation and inspiration to be the best every single day.”

He also motivates his team members to live by this attitude of taking the customer further, pushing hard every day and going the extra mile. “The most memorable for me or my best moment is when my team members are being recognized and are being given opportunities for a higher role outside of the team." That’s also why friends describe John Paul as a positive thinker with a winning and competitive spirit, who wants to be one of the best in every situation. But also, is a very funny person to have a lot of fun with.

His character is also reflected in his private life, where he loves to be active, plays basketball and travels a lot. His team spirit is what makes him outstanding. Thank you so much John Paul for being at DB Schenker and living our value #OneTeamWithOneGoal in a very special way.
