I did an Internship with Kuehne and Nagel Singapore at the national airfreight pricing department as a pricing intern.

Over the 7-month internship, I was able to apply the concepts taught in school and a glimpse into the transportation segment of many companies’ supply chain, which helped me to understand many concepts from letter of credit requirements under trade law, to negotiation strategies under procurement management.

With Kuehne and Nagel, I was also able to see and understand business strategies for freight forwarders in light of digital disruption, and the current challenges that they face in air and sea transportation. In addition, the independence given to me on my daily work allowed me to explore new ideas and concepts to provide much more competitive solutions for their customers. The e-learning modules that Kuehne Nagel provided also allowed me to actively learn, whenever I had some spare time, more about the company’s global operations and how it handled different types of cargo in accordance to International standards and regulations.

Being a multi-national company, Kuehne and Nagel also exposed me to working with people from countries all around the globe and to engage in discussions with them to bring about solutions for the different customers that they had, allowing me to further grow myself as a "Global Citizen".
