A warehouse worker turns into a logistics and supply chain manager


A man like Kim Karl Dalariarte Enal would be the ideal person to approach regarding workplace leniency and seamless supply transactions.

Karl, the Logistics and Supply Chain Manager of Maimoon Papers Industry LLC, is 33 years old. He’s been in the UAE for 10 years. And he’s always chasing his aspirations for the future and his family.

He arrived in the UAE in 2012 and began as a warehouse worker. After a year, he was promoted to warehouse manager and logistics operations executive after two years of hard work.

After gaining expertise at his first firm, he was hired as a logistics manager by a multinational supply chain organization in 2015. He became a logistics and supply chain manager after seven years of pure effort, and he regarded it as the pinnacle of his career.

Working in another country

Karl feels that his trip to Dubai is part of God’s plan for him. According to him, his brother got him out from the Philippines due to misbehavior. When he arrived in Dubai, he found both luck and change.

“To be honest, my elder brother just took me because I was so obstinate in the Philippines. I think the Lord prompted me to come here and change my life,” he explained

His first job was never simple. He was a laborer with expertise in putting loose chemical bag cargo into 20-foot-over-40-foot containers, driving forklifts, and physically dumping open chemical drums.

Karl claims that he pushed himself to work harder and was delighted that the management of his former employer noticed his excellent work and finally promoted him.

They are required to be detailed in their field of work in logistics, and delays have no place at work. Discipline is usually a top concern in his line of work.

“Most fulfilling for me is when you solve a problem or issue at work that no one else can handle, and every time I continued repeating myself, that joy,” he stated.

Struggles to achieve perfection

His goal in continuing to work overseas is to better himself while helping his family. His family is his drive in life, and he does not want them to be concerned.

One of his difficulties, he claims, is homesickness since he constantly misses his family in the Philippines. He also had work-related issues, financial difficulties, and the typical hardships of overseas Filipino employees.

Karl taps himself anytime he is about to quit. “And I keep telling myself to do my best, never quit, and keep going no matter how difficult the conditions are,” he explained.

He is now loving his employment and hopes to start his own business one day. He says he wants to outperform the previous year by accomplishing something important.

When asked for advice to our kababayans, he said: “Keep viewing positive movies; this will shift your mind towards positive things. I hammered the nail through. It’s like your dreams; if you don’t do it, they won’t come true. Keep going. Small things add up to huge things.”
