Logistics & Operations

Fast, reliable and uncomplicated: they prepare the packages for our customers and hand them over to the freight forwarder. Our experienced warehouse team maintains their zen and tranquility despite having a workload that grows by the day. They process & ship well over 100,000 hammocks per year, and at this point, cannot be stressed out by anything.

Apprentices (Tomorrow's Hammock Experts)

Learning, discovering and taking on responsibility: Our apprentices are deployed in a wide range of areas and work directly with team leaders. This is how they come to quickly to understand the processes in the company and eventually work independently. We are proud to say that our apprentice team has become a vital and valuable part of the LA SIESTA family (and that we usually learn as much from them as we teach).
