Leadership principles for a good working environment

A pleasant working environment and good management – it is not arbitrary, it is our mutual conviction based on our principles and values.

That requires managers who exercise their roles and responsibility. We are reliable and seize the day, we are personal and approachable, courageous and future-oriented. Our leadership principles form the foundation for these actions.

Secure jobs and fair framework conditions

We are a company with employee involvement. It was already that way when the first containers arrived in Bremen in 1966 – and it is still the case today: together with the company management and employee organizations, we find the best solution for our company – our employees can depend on us.

Our handshake counts. And yes: that also means secure jobs, payment on time, and attractive social benefits.

With us, fair framework conditions do not depend on managers. We use labor agreements and guarantee our employees reliable working conditions.

We want only the best for the people who work for us, and we want that beyond their employment: our company pension scheme is an important building block for security in retirement. Together, we develop individual plans to create your pension scheme.

Open communication

Our central mission: move goods intelligently. That has a future and requires courage, body, and mind and opens up interesting career paths.

Our central goal: long-term work, together with satisfied and committed employees. Work in a team governs our everyday. Here, we live with openness and tolerance.

Over 300 managers with open ears and minds are waiting for you and 20,000 colleagues who are happy to be BLG LOGISTICS. Our teams are diverse and dynamic – anyone who sees the person behind tattoos and pinstripes is welcome here.

Open communication also means: every opinion is valuable. We are happy to receive not only praise but also criticism. We live that in our everyday. Additionally, we perform an employee survey across Germany every two years. We use the results to develop and implement measures to improve work conditions together with the employees.

Professional and personal further development

We champion the training and further development of our employees with blood, sweat, and tears. Whether during the apprenticeship, dual curriculum, or as part of continuing education, we support all of our talents at all levels.

It is important to us that everyone is able to continue developing individually during their professional careers: for young talents, we offer numerous apprenticeship places, and we offer various support programs for our employees, such as when they begin extra occupational studies. We also train our own managers, whether in our young talent master program or our management trainee program (MTP). Here, participants get to know us extensively as a company and pave their way to becoming managers at BLG LOGISTICS.

You don’t have a high school diploma? Even people who left high school without a diploma get the chance to have an apprenticeship with us in Bremen. You work in our logistics centers, and we help you prepare for the external exam at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce parallel to your job, for instance, with extra occupational courses and supplementary training. Even if takes a little bit longer: after 4.5 years and after passing the exam, you can call yourself a specialist in warehouse logistics - even without a high school diploma.

Here, it does not matter where you come from but rather where you are going and what you can do.

Compatibility of family and work

How do family and work fit together? Our answer: with flexible working time models. We give mothers and fathers in apprenticeships a chance and actively support working parents and employees who take care of family members. Additionally, we offer a wide range of health care and holiday care offerings. Our in-house social counseling provides you with advice and support whenever you need it.
