Kevin Yu
Head of Commercial, United Arab Emirates
2013 Intake


As a young graduate of shipping and logistics, I chose to embark my career in OOCL, the best renowned container shipping company in HK, as a natural choice. 

The 3 year MT program provided me all-rounded on the job training and exposure covering various fronts of HQ functions. Not long after completing the trainee program I took up overseas assignment and since then I have had different rotations leading different functions and working in different countries. Shipping is an international business. I can relate to this statement with my own experience. OOCL strives to provide a vital link to global trade. I am proud to be a member contributing to this great cause in the very frontline.

Stephanie Wong
Deputy Manager, Intra-Asia Trade​ 
2015 Intake 


OOCL’s MT programme is the perfect way to jumpstart one’s career in shipping: As an MT, I worked in different departments, and learned the main business of the company and how it operates.  

Shipping being a global business, MTs get a chance to work with colleagues from all around the world. Indeed, one of the highlights of my MT journey was my year working in our UK intra-Europe trade department.  

These experiences enable MTs to be key players in the company’s operations, upon completing their 3-year programme.
