1 / Could you tell us more about your career path and your current position?
I started my studies with a DUT (University-level degree program) in Logistics and Transport Management in Quimper, France, including an internship at GEODIS in Martinique. I then followed my course in England, Southampton as part of an Erasmus program in maritime affairs. Back in France, I started a Master in Global Supply Chain at Kedge Business School in Bordeaux and I did a semester in Suzhou (China) at the China University of Renmin.
I am doing today a Master 2 apprenticeship at the Logistics Department of the Fleet Technical Division of Louis Dreyfus Armateurs.
My position at Louis Dreyfus Armateurs mainly consists of deliveries to cable ships, offshore wind maintenance vessels as well as the Marion Dufresne. It is therefore necessary to coordinate suppliers, carriers, customs and other collaborators to deliver the ship during a stopover anywhere in the world.
2 / What do you like most about your job?
The first thing that I appreciate is the variety of tasks. Each shipment is different and presents its own particularities (dangerous products, dual military use, exceptional dimensions, customs specificities of the countries, etc.) which makes routine impossible. This is also driven by various ship positions, never in the same place at the same time.
I also enjoy working with a large number of personnel, whether they are internal (buyers, superintendents) or external (agents, carriers, customs). Every day is different; this makes my work-study experience at Louis Dreyfus Armateurs truly enriching which is a very good start in professional life.
3/ What are your passions?
My passions are mainly water sports (surfing, kitesurfing, sailing ...).
More recently, I have been playing again the guitar (let’s say thanks to the lockdown!)
Thank you Max!
