The core sector of the United Arab Emirates’ economy is the shipping and logistics industry. This is a vital sector in that it includes the responsibility for the transport of oil products from petroleum mining and the transport of these to the next destination, up to the end process of the product to the destination of distribution to world markets.
Dubai is the major shipping center in the Middle East, the key transit point for products like petroleum, crude oil, gas and construction materials all of which comprise the key elements to the prominence of the city’s logistics industry.
Inland transportation, shipping and freight logistic industry is a major sector that provides employment to thousands of foreign workers deployed in the United Arab Emirates. Shipping companies based in Dubai offer job opportunities for the following key personnel: masters, captains, merchant navy officers, cargo vessel stewards, engineers, freight agents, and other functional staff to work in their booking, chartering, forwarding, trading, linear, freight and other shipping-related works functions for their cruise ships, cargo liners, container ships, oil tankers, and bulk carriers. Transport companies recruit for positions like those of logistics managers, facilities managers, transport managers, account managers, marketing executives, sales analysts, as well as tanker drivers, truck drivers, bus drivers, cleaners, mechanics, transport security officers, security guards, courier delivery agents, and transport contractors.
International freight companies usually provide logistics services that cover all activities in air freight, sea freight, canal transit through the world’s major canals, multi-model transportation, road transportation, courier services, sure lines, perishable logistics, removal services, warehousing, supply chain management and services and project cargo servicing to any point of the globe. They also provide marine services including offshore and ship-to-ship transfer.
A career in the shipping and logistics industry offers good compensation and a pleasant work environment that encourages openness and creativity. This career is also a possible gateway to personnel and professional development. It usually involves travels to different countries of destination. Opportunities to go to places other than the base city abound. Visiting other continents and exposure to different environments and cultures provide opportunities to educate those who land in this profession. These add up to the chance towards self-fulfillment in the kind of work this career brings. This line of work is far from easy though; extra care matched with accurate moves and decisions before each travel/transport transaction must be taken in order to avoid extra costs and wasted manhours. Close transaction monitoring is needed with respect to freight services because any extra activity brought about by mistakes will cost money and additional effort.
Due to the nature of work in this field, companies in Dubai believe that the key to business success is excellent management and meticulous manpower hiring to ensure only well-qualified personnel. Recruitment of good staff and excellent training in the nature of the business and pertinent line of work are crucial. Proper training, discipline, and knowledge of the company business are tools to maintain efficient business flow.
Qualified individuals, both local and foreign, are encouraged to get into this career which spells opportunities that satisfy love for even discriminating lifestyle. As Dubai continues to produce oil and gas for worldwide distribution, shipping and logistic employment shall continue, bringing opportunities to people around the world.
