This year, 481 young men and women have chosen to pursue an education with logistics provider Dachser in Germany. Each of them embarked upon the road to vocational and professional training on either August 1st or September 1st. In addition to training in business, IT, and technical positions, Dachser’s training also covers the industrial sector as well as the professional driver industry. Another 36 college students are commencing their dual studies program in the field of freight forwarding/transport/logistics.
Over the next few years, apprentices and college students will have the opportunity to explore the many facets of logistics and find enrichment and growth in their career choices. The company will support them in this process individually, although it also expects a high degree of commitment and willingness to learn as they proceed on the path to successful professional education and training.
“We count on the talented individuals from our own ranks,” explains Bernhard Simon, Spokesman of Dachser Management Board. “A solid education is the foundation to a successful professional career. This way, we can defy the shortage of skilled workers,” Simon continues.
In addition to the training at their vocational school or college, apprentices and students at Dachser have the option of participating in numerous internal and external continuing education programs. The curriculum ranges from special freight forwarding and logistics training programs through to foreign language instruction. Each year, the logistics provider rewards extraordinarily distinguished performance with an annual Trainee Prize. “Makes no difference if it’s an industrial or commercial employee, we value openness, dedication, and personality among all our employees,” emphasizes Bernhard Simon.
The company has a consistently high training rate of more than ten percent. Currently, a total of 1,381 young adults are completing their training or their degree studies at Dachser.
