Tapping the Next Generation

Green Worldwide Shipping LLC is pleased to support and participate in the Harper College Apprenticeship Program.

Offering an opportunity for education that goes well beyond the classroom, the program allows potential student candidates to receive real-life experience as well as tuition support and a steady income while earning their certification.

Several programs are offered through Harper College including Logistics and Supply Chain Management.   The candidates participate in a challenging course study two days a week with the balance of their time in the office putting what they learn to work.  We are pleased that Harper has decided to include this curriculum allowing the next generation of supply chain professionals an avenue to learning the trade that most of us never had.

This program is a testament to the strength, importance, and growth of the supply chain industry.   By participating, Green Worldwide is giving back to the community and gaining an employee who will be educated under the joint culture of Harper College and Green Worldwide.

Cool Cargo: P51 Combat Fighter

This past December, we helped move a very expensive, and very cool-looking motorcycle from Alabama, United States, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The motorcycle is built entirely of the 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, and, unfortunately, our export team could not take the motorcycle for a test drive prior to it’s departure to Dubai.

Check out more pictures of the P51 Combat Fighter!

Happy New Year!

We hope that you and yours had a safe and happy holiday season! To celebrate the new year, we created a year-in-review video to look back on all the growth that took place during 2016.

We could only highlight a few events in the video, but from joining Twitter to opening our eighth branch in Denver, Colorado, it certainly was a busy year for Green Worldwide Shipping. We hope you enjoy the video, and we look forward to another busy year!
