Container line Hapag-Lloyd is seeking to hire senior purchasers in Hamburg and Singapore.

The company is looking for candidates with several years of experience for both roles, a representative told Ship & Bunker on Wednesday.

The roles come with the following responsibilities, according to the company:

  • Responsible for part of the firm's annual 4.5 million tons of fuel oil purchases and spend of up to $3.5 billion
  • Handling of own designated geographical area and permanent direct contact with all relevant stakeholders along the internal and external supply chain
  • Negotiation and execution of complex fuel contracts and spot deals with more than 100 international suppliers
  • Monitoring and analysing global economic indicators and markets to ensure deliveries take place in an efficient and cost-effective manner

"As well as being one of the world's largest buyers of conventional bunker fuel with around 270 vessels in its fleet, Hapag-Lloyd will also increasingly be taking on alternative fuels in the coming years such as LNG or biofuels," the company representative added.
