People for people — this is how our business works
Being consistent in its strategy, ZAMMLER brings Ukrainian management to its new branches abroad and hires the rest of the staff locally. “It appeared very hard to work with people in other countries. In Ukraine they are more professional, apt, flexible and hardworking than in Poland or China,” Shevchenko says.
The biggest challenges for the company’s efficiency come from the workforce, who need to “use their hands and brains to the max,” and finding such people abroad is becoming ever harder.
Shevchenko himself has worked in logistics for years now — rising all the way from middle manager to CEO and business owner, knows the business from the inside. “Fish rot from the head — but that’s never going to happen in our company,” laughs Shevchenko. “And that’s why we keep growing.”
