Crane International, a major logistics and transportation firm, is now looking to hire thousands of people to work in the United States and Europe.
Crane’s global logistics and supply chain manager, John Hutton, said he’s “looking for people who can work from the U.S. to Europe in a team.”
The job postings on Crane’s website are listed in the U, U.K., Germany, and Spain.
Crane expects to hire about 5,000 people across its four U. S. and four European locations.
Hutton told Reuters that the company’s hiring effort is intended to prepare the company for a transition period, after a transition to a new leadership team and after the company makes the move to a “new, different and innovative architecture.”
The company has also hired about 50 employees in Europe and Africa.
“It’s not a question of if we’re hiring,” Hutton said.
“The reality is we have a lot of new people coming in, and we have to be able to hire them all.
We’re not at the point where we’re looking for people.”
The U.s. and Europe will soon become the third and fourth largest logistics hubs in the world.
Hensley said Crane expects its new leadership to make the company “more agile” in its global operations.
The company expects to grow from 1,000 to 5,500 employees in the next few years, he said.
Crane said it will have at least 50 new full-time employees by the end of the year.
Crane is one of the world’s largest logistics companies, and its global footprint includes over 700 different businesses.
Crane employs nearly 5,300 people worldwide, and it has nearly 500 employees in Spain.
Horsley said the company is looking to bring on a “small group of people” to help with the transition, and “have them work on the transition as part of a team,” and then “return to a small group in the future to start looking at some more of the different roles.”
The move to the new architecture will also make the companies “very focused on our core businesses, our core service businesses, and the ability to deliver on those,” he said, “and be able, as we look at the future, to be more agile in our business.”
Crane’s new global leadership team, according to Hensry, is composed of people with at least a masters degree, as well as people who have held other roles within the company.
Crane did not name the company and it is not clear if the job postings include specific experience requirements.
