Behind the wheels – the HJT pilots
Some refer to them as drivers – we call them pilots.
To us it is everyday speech – behind the wheels we have: HJT pilots.
We do not do this to be different, but to indicate and symbolize the responsibility we undertake behind the wheels. We conduct transportation within the areas of pharma, food, feed, and industry goods. Common to the industry are the specific rules, demands, and legislation in each specific area. A responsibility we carry when we sit behind the wheels.
To be proud of what you do, to have a purpose on the workplace and to share the values in your company, are all legitimate employee demands. By investing in job satisfaction, our positive and highly motivated personnel is the core for a successful business.
