Job description

With your customer-oriented and service-oriented attitude, you plan and manage Samskip's daily road transport operations. In this full-time role as a road freight forwarder based in Norway, you work at Nor Lines International AS, one of Norway's largest transport companies. From your base in Trondheim, you mainly focus on the local distribution of goods. You're the ideal person for this role.

A standard job? We don't have those at Samskip. 
From Trondheim, you plan and manage our daily truck transport operations. You do so as economically and optimally as possible, both for our company and for our customers. You mainly charter for local distribution and the domestic line haul transport of goods. As our full-time road freight forwarder:

  • you focus on the brokerage of various goods;
  • you handle carriers' settlements;
  • you take part in negotiations with suppliers;
  • you spend part of your time on international logistics.


An international position based in Norway.

From Trondheim, you have an international impact on our operations and share in the success of one of Europe's largest transport companies. On land, at sea and by rail. Your expertise has an international impact at Samskip.

International? Certainly. We ship goods across the globe, and to make that happen, we need many people. This means your work reaches much further than Norway alone, because you help customers across the globe. Sustainable and environmentally-friendly transport is very important to us as a company, and you regularly reap the benefits of this. That's because we deliver many of the products you see in your supermarket, with the lowest possible environmental impact.

Quality, everywhere and always.

You will join our 10-member Norwegian team in Trondheim. At Nor Lines International AS, you're part of an ambitious team that works to deliver efficient and sustainable solutions for our customers, suppliers and owners. Nor Lines offers you an ambitious and energetic working environment that is constantly developing and where a great deal happens. Every employee contributes to the success of the company, by taking responsibility, through personal commitment, and by working together across borders and cultures.

You can count on us.

We offer you a job at Nor Lines, one of the largest transport companies in Norway. Nor Lines is a company with long-term perspective, where you work alongside motivated colleagues in an energetic, international environment. Based on a 40-hour week, we offer you:

  • a salary appropriate to your knowledge and background;
  • 25 days annual leave;
  • pension and insurance schemes;
  • limitless opportunities for self-development;


Actions speak louder than words.

First and foremost, we can rely on your customer-oriented and service-oriented attitude. You are structured and organised in your work, which you approach with plenty of creativity. You have a good understanding of the business, you are a good communicator, you are able to motivate others, and you love working as part of a team. Your energetic and determined personality helps you develop strong relationships, and thus to reach shared goals. So far so good? We'd love to hear from you if you also have:

  • completed your studies in the field of logistics and transport;
  • at least three years' experience as a charterer or forwarder in the transport industry;
  • excellent command of Norwegian and English.
