Your benefits

  • Unique workplace

    Dynamic, varied and always on the move - the port is not like any other workplace. That’s something you have to like! But if you appreciate a breath of fresh air and lots of variety, then you’ve come to the right place.

  • Fair pay

    Sometimes it's quite easy. Good work deserves good pay. We pay according to the collective wage agreement, of course. What you get on top with us: capital-forming benefits and a subsidy for the company pension scheme.

  • Annual special payments

    Vacation bonus, Christmas bonus, long-term loyalty bonus – appreciation comes in many ways. Sometimes also in monetary terms.

  • Further training

    Standing still simply does not fit in with working in a port environment. We support LHG employees in their personal and professional development with individual training courses.

  • Health management

    The health of our employees is extremely important to us. From check-ups and vaccinations to company sports - there's a lot going on here.

  • Discount programme

    In addition to the varied Lübeck weather, LHG employees also enjoy a wide range of discounts with various online and offline retailers. 

  • Company car park

    There are plenty of parking spaces for our employees both at our Hafenhaus headquarters and at our terminals.

  • Flexible working

    Goods can only be loaded to a limited extent in the home office. Some things can only be done on site at our terminals. But wherever it suits, flexible and mobile working is possible, of course.

  • Team events

    If you can work, you can also party. Whether at our annual summer party or at the Christmas party in the respective department - we celebrate the same way as we work: preferably together.   

  • More mobility

    The very personal change in mobility by opting for a bike? It’s running... ...or rather rolling along We support company bike leasing for all our employees who want to cycle to work and are covered by the TVöD (collective agreement for public service employees). 

  • Lunch

    Lunch break in the Hafenhaus? Best of all in our canteen, chatting with colleagues. We give you a lunch allowance for this purpose.

Plus points for trainees

  • Internal instruction

    Trainees meet internally at regular intervals to exchange ideas – and to receive further training directly on site.

  • Completion bonus

    Start-up allowance All trainees receive a bonus of €400 on successful completion of their training.

  • Driving license (C, CE)

    During their training with us, prospective port logistics specialists have the opportunity to pass their C/CE driver's license test during their working hours. We cover the full costs of this. 

  • Good chance of staying on with the company

    We prefer to train our young, upcoming talent ourselves. In this way, our trainees learn and benefit directly from experienced logistics professionals. This is shown by the high retention rate: if things go well,  then training with us is just the beginning!
