If someone asked you the top 3 benefits of sea based transportation and logistics, what would you tell them?
The interviewer would like to see that you have a genuine interest in the business they conduct at Safe Bulkers. Briefly discuss with the interviewer what you feel the benefits of sea transportation are.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"There are some great benefits to sea transportation, but I believe the biggest three benefits of working with an organization like Safe Bulkers are that it's a great solution for transporting heavy and bulky goods. Also, sea transportation offers much more flexibility when it comes to the materials allowed to be transported. Thirdly, sea transport allows the greatest quantity of materials in a load, because of their large storage capacity."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"That's a great question! If I had to choose the top benefits of sea transportation, I would say that it's more economical for large shipments, it allows for a wider range of materials to be transported, and it offers fewer restrictions on the type of materials shipped."

Be sure to research the Safe Bulkers website and take note of any keywords they use when it comes to their clients and services. Match your language with theirs.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I noticed on your website that you value your clients by actively listening to their needs. You also survey them regularly while staying on top of industry trends so that you can provide them with innovative new services. To me, customer service goes beyond friendliness and efficiency. You need to understand your customer's business needs and have the ability to analyze their future needs so that you can respond appropriately to their business landscape changes."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I realize that "The customer is always right" must be a popular answer; however, I feel that first and foremost, the customer needs to trust your product and services. So, for that reason, I would say that my customer service philosophy is all about building trust and transparency."
