Backstage: Order Logistics, Export & Shipping

"Diverse, challenging, and international: this is administration that is also fun."

Cora, Administration Manager | Anton Paar OptoTec GmbH

I’ve been working at Anton Paar OptoTec since 1980 and I’m responsible for order processing, export, and shipping.

Our company is specialized in the development and production of highly precise measuring devices and analytical instruments. These are employed in the pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and chemical industries as well as in research. Together with the colleagues in my department I take care that all order processing runs smoothly. This starts with recording and checking incoming orders: Are the price and the shipping conditions correct? Are the delivery dates correct?

When the goods are ready, we prepare all the documents required for shipping: for example delivery notes and invoices as well as customs and transport documents. We have to take the customs and taxation provisions of all destination countries into consideration. This means almost all countries worldwide. We are also responsible for coordinating the transportation, including shipment tracking and monitoring.

It’s especially the international contacts that enrich my daily work. It’s a daily challenge to meet the various needs of both internal and external partners. The fact that the company provides me with a secure job with a lot of variety due to its constant growth and continuous innovation is also important to me.

I’m proud of the fact that Anton Paar and Anton Paar OptoTec have secured an established position on the international market due to our innovative products and high share of exports. This kind of success can only be achieved with a well-functioning team, a team that always pursues a common goal. That is what you will find here.
