A second career
Johann Schneigelberger has reinvented himself numerous times throughout his life. At 11 years old, he came to Germany from Kasachstan. And after the second home, there also came a second career: “After finishing school, I first became a wood mechanic”, he says. But then he decided to start anew in the logistics field. After training to become a logistics expert, an opportunity opened up for him: “I had the chance to start working at CWS-boco. My sister has been working here for a long time and she convinced me to send out an application”, he laughs.
A talent for organizing
Johann Schneigelberger is located in Lauterbach. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the headquarter of the CWS-boco Supply Chain Management GmbH is home to designers, coordinators and logistics coordinators like him. In his daily work, he organizes transports, discusses prices and follows the journey of every pallet. “I am on the phone a lot, talking to our partners”, he says. Sounds stressful. “Well, it is important that in the end, everything arrives where it is supposed to. Every jacket, every towel roll, every dispenser. But I think I’m also pretty good at staying calm”, he laughs. A key feature of every organizational talent.
