"From Novice to Maverick: Navigating the Tech Seas at Shipergy!"

Step into the shoes of a shipping employee within a well-established corporation, where routine duties define your workday. 

Now, picture taking a bold leap into the realm of a tech-oriented bunkering trading company, where the thrill of building something groundbreaking from scratch awaits. Can you envision not just fulfilling tasks but sparking a revolution in the bunkering industry? It's not just a job; it's a journey to redefine and reshape an entire sector. 

Welcome to the story of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary, where industry boundaries are not just pushed but shattered.

Unleashing Creative Brilliance: A Journey into Innovation

In the fast-paced and competitive landscape of the tech-oriented Signal ecosystem, creativity is the lifeblood that fuels innovation and sets companies apart. This holds especially true for companies like Shipergy, where the pressure to adapt to market dynamics is relentless. In such environments, fostering creativity among employees becomes a strategic imperative for sustainable growth and success.

And this becomes a necessity, especially to traditional industries like ours.


Navigating Risks: Smart Decision-Making Strategies

In a traditional bunkering company, the fear of failure can be paralyzing. Thus, we worked hard to create a culture that encourages calculated risk-taking and views setbacks as learning opportunities. This mindset shift allowed us  to experiment and push the boundaries of conventional thinking.

From day one also, we prioritised the well-being of market participants, customers, traders, and suppliers. 

This forward-thinking initiative not only underscores a commitment to innovation but also places a strong emphasis on cultivating positive relationships within the industry. By considering the diverse needs and perspectives of market participants, Shipergy is poised to create a collaborative and mutually beneficial ecosystem. The incorporation of customer-centric practices ensures a seamless and satisfying experience for clients, while the attention to the concerns and interests of traders and suppliers reflects a holistic approach to business. In fostering such a comprehensive approach, Shipergy not only demonstrates its dedication to success but also inspires confidence in the potential for positive growth and sustainability in the ever-evolving bunker trading and tech sector.

Cultivating Success: Shipergy’s Culture Insights

In a thriving commercial environment, continuous learning opportunities serve as a cornerstone. You either name it investments in ongoing training, development programs, or business trips to conferences and seminars, we do all when necessary. These not only keep us abreast of the latest industry trends but also contribute to the generation of innovative ideas, propelling Shipergy to new heights. 

Vertical hierarchy also hurts big and established companies. Breaking down silos between departments is a key tenet of success, fostering cross-functional collaboration that creates a breeding ground for innovation. Recognition and rewards for creativity are vital, solidifying Shipergy’s commitment to a culture where every idea is valued. 

We also like to push and challenge each other, with respect to their knowledge and experience. Several times great ideas and initiatives were borned because of that.

We give feedback and support, we are not afraid to challenge each other and we rely on others on a bad day. We are willing to wear multiple hats, develop all the necessary skills across various domains and be versatile, after all,  that is expected in a new company!

And that’s how we started…

What does it take though, to leave the comfort of an established corporation and adapt into a shipping traditional environment?

There is no room for comfortable zones. This agile company environment, with its prevalent need for individuals handling multiple roles, fosters faster career progression, offering a sense of ownership and impact in smaller organisations. The entrepreneurial experience of witnessing a business being built from the ground up is invaluable for those aspiring to start their ventures. 

That’s not to say that staying in your comfort zone is bad or shameful, it is just another choice, a different path. Not black or white options, everyone has their own personality and excels in different situations, we need each other!

Summing it up: Because Life is too short for long blogs!

In summary, the experience of taking on various responsibilities in a new bunkering company within the Signal group is a journey filled with continuous learning, creativity, and unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional growth. It's not just a job; it's a chance to contribute to a success story that goes beyond the ordinary, shaping careers and industries in the process.
