SOVEREIGN.
VIELFÄLTIGER SERVICE. EINE GEMEINSCHAFT.

THE SOVEREIGN FAMILY.

SOVEREIGN Speed was founded in 1998 as a neutral, independent express courier with its head office in Hamburg. From a single line-haul line from Hamburg to Brussels, SOVEREIGN soon developed into the premium supplier of urgent freight in Europe. With over 100 overnight connections and a diverse range of express handling services for time-sensitive freight, nowadays the SOVEREIGN Group is one of the key players in this segment.

But not everything has changed: Despite rapid growth, we’re still a community, finding solutions together. That’s why we’re working every day towards being the most reliable express carrier offering the best value in Europe – maximum service quality at the best price. In doing so, it’s not the achievement of short-term success, but always the sustainability of our business model that is paramount.

We cultivate and value fair and respectful relationships with our staff and the general public. We strongly promote fair play and good working conditions within the transport sector, create new jobs and training places, and support a number of social projects.

CAREERS AT SOVEREIGN

Our staff are as unique as the SOVEREIGN Group’s line network. With their help, SOVEREIGN has grown to become the premium supplier within the European express delivery sector. Today the company has over 600 employees in seven countries.

The foundation for success

We want to attract new members of staff who take on their roles with plenty of team spirit and drive. At SOVEREIGN, having a fun workplace is the foundation for personal and business success.

Attractive working environment

You can look forward to an attractive working environment in many interesting fields with challenging projects and well-organised teams. We are an innovative business and leaders in our industry. We are therefore looking for more qualified employees and managers, who want to help shape our success.

Work-life balance

What’s more, anyone who chooses to come and work at SOVEREIGN usually stays with us, as we cultivate a strong company culture with a friendly approach. The personal well-being of our employees is close to our hearts. With advice on nutritional matters, participation in running events and a gym at our Hamburg office, we help our employees to achieve a good work-life balance. There are regular get-togethers after work. There is a mixture of small parties and big events and these enhance staff relations and camaraderie. SOVEREIGN also offers an external consultation service if required, in the event of serious life situations.

Further training and benefits

Furthermore, you can look forward to a number of benefits and development opportunities. We value motivated staff and as such we are always sympathetic towards requests for further training and interest in training and instruction courses. A company pension scheme, coffee for everyone and in every variety, ergonomics in the workplace, a travel allowance and fruit at workdays are other examples of staff offerings.

Award-winning

SOVEREIGN has successfully taken part on several occasions in the competition to find ‘Hamburg’s best employer’. And as a family-friendly organisation with flexible working arrangements, which are suited to your family life, SOVEREIGN is also well ahead of the pack.
