Jobs on Large Ships







However, operations have become globalized. Containerization has grown to be a major
mode of cargo transport. Intermodal operations interfacing with rail and truck
transportation have introduced disciplines such as freight forwarding, logistics, and
operations management. You are going to see more in the way of positions dealing with
freight and container operations, logistics, and supply chain management.

We’ve seen many mergers among many top players in this industry. And some of the
heavyweights list their employment opportunities in terms of hundreds of jobs. With
some ocean carriers, you’ll still find the traditional opportunities. Some even have
programs where qualified candidates are groomed and trained for positions of
increasing responsibility aboard their ships.
















Because of the growth of the land-based operations, these companies have
opportunities for analysts, accountants, auditors and surveyors. Interestingly, you may
see more opportunities for positions like those than the more traditionally recognizable
maritime jobs. Claims adjustment for damaged cargo is a critical aspect of marine
ocean transport.

Cargo may be broken in transit. It may have been exposed to salt water. Or steel may
have been exposed to excessive moisture, where it sustained rust damage. Such
losses require cargo surveyors and claims adjustors to reconcile the monetary losses
with insurance carriers, subrogation companies and recipients of the cargo.








The jobs offered by these companies are diverse and multidisciplinary. Some will
require a degree in engineering, or possibly qualification in refrigeration. Others may
require expertise the rules of COGSA (Carriage of Goods by Sea Act), surveyor reports,
bills of lading, letters of credit, certain sections of the Uniform Commercial Code. Others
may require familiarity with the latest software for accounting and auditing.

Many backgrounds and disciplines are sought by large ocean carriers today.

Good luck and smooth sailing!
