Why is the FMS Bremen office a great place to work?

The Bremen office is a great place to work as the building has its own history. In former times the famous Tchibo coffee was roasted there. The office is located near the river Weser with walking distance to the legendary stadium of our glorious football team WERDER BREMEN.

3 questions to Henning Menze

1. What is your job at FMS? 

I am the department manager (Manager Seafreight Export GC) in the Seafreight General Cargo Export department and I am responsible for a team of 9 experienced logistic operators and 4 apprentices. Our main task is taking care of our customers and provide them the best possible logistic solutions and service at all times.

I started as an apprentice at FMS Bremen 11 years ago. After my apprenticeship I worked for two years as an operator in our General Cargo Export department.

FMS is a company with flat hierarchies in which decisions can be made and implemented very quickly. FMS clearly shows that employee satisfaction is not only a question of corporate attitude and morale, but business success.
