Numbers mean a lot at Waypoint Port Services, the port agency and bunkering company of the Schulte Group. From the number of port calls, jobs received, managed vessels loading grain, Panama Canal transits handled, to crew changes.
But there is one specific figure which pleases the company the most, which is that 38% of Waypoint’s workforce are ladies, from accountants, port operators to country managers. All of them helping Waypoint generate the positive, ever growingly satisfactory, positive financial numbers, year after year.
Port agency operations are not simple. And to explain better the challenges, the rewards, and the emotions they go through, this is what a selection of Waypoint female employees had to say about being part of Waypoint and about their role, or the industry, overall.
