Show the Way and Assist Where Needed

Logistics is a great field, especially for the new generation of workers. Logistics is a future-oriented industry that demands an increasing level of understanding of links to other sectors. For this reason the apprenticeship training programs are not limited to logistics, planning and transport management but also cover language training, communication skills and economics.

Our goal is to offer 100% of our apprentices a position after they complete their training. We want to develop their talents so that they can help shape the company in significant ways.
