Why work at Panalpina

You`re inspiring. You`re authentic. You believe in empowerment. This is what you bring to the table if you want to join Panalpina, and this is what we offer:


People above all

We drive an effective leadership culture that unleashes the full potential of our employees.


We foster diversity and believe in the opportunities of intercultural teams. Everyone can thrive regardless of background, age, gender, race, or religion.



Company culture

Company culture is made up of the values you live daily at work, and these are not aspirational, they are actual. Our values reflect the Panalpina spirit – a passion for solutions:


1. Performance – No compromise on excellence.


2. Integrity – We keep our promises and play by the rules.


3. Professionalism – We take our work seriously and make sure everything we do is the best it can be.



Shape the future with us

At Panalpina we aspire to have communities of well-trained and empowered employees, who have the resources to make decisions and execute. We know that flexibility goes a long way in encouraging creativity and innovation.


Empowerment is taken seriously at Panalpina: You’ll get the tools you need and will be in the company of great people, but it’s up to you to fully own your development and contribution.


You get to shape the company.



Make an impact

You also get to shape the world: You’ll be part of exciting projects and also get a chance to help those in need.


From 57-ton neutrino hunters to hydraulic presses for ceramics making, from helicopters and helidecks to autoclaves and solar farm management, our specialized services have the scale, breadth and capability to match the necessities of any project. There’s nothing we can’t move.


And there’s nothing we don’t. At this very moment, you are more than likely wearing, eating or using something that wasn’t produced where you live. We probably had something to do with it too.


Panalpina also supports UNICEF by donating charter flights to deliver much-needed relief goods to the African continent.



Develop your career – with worldwide opportunities

Take our current President and CEO Stefan Karlen, for example. He started as a broker with Panalpina in 1997 and developed his career by taking international assignments and different leadership and management responsibilities ever since, up to the very top of our company.
