Transport and logistics are part of everyone’s everyday, it is just that very few people think about it, unless they run into problems. It is a matter of moving goods from A to B, planning everything to do with the transport and making the best use of capacity when packing goods and ensuring that all the paperwork is in order – including custom-house papers.
When a manufacturing company assembles component parts into a finished product, which is then to be sent on, freight forwarders ensure that the product makes its destination. This applies to electronics, food and everything you buy and use in your everyday.
As a freight forwarder trainee with DB Schenker you are soon ready to work independently, handling both transports and customers.
During your DB Schenker trainee programme, you will work with transport, logistics, customer service, management of purchases and administration. You are trained in a minimum of two of our modes of transport, SEA, AIR, ROAD, RAIL as well as intermodal transports.
