We take training junior talent VERY seriously

Systematic training of the next generation of employees combines the need-based and strategic workforce planning of our company with the individual career planning of the apprentices. We aim to achieve positive effects on several levels: in terms of meeting our future demand for specialist and managerial staff, the focus is on optimising our internal development processes.

Not only the trades, but shipping companies in particular know all too well how difficult it is to find and retain suitable applicants. The shortage of skilled workers has been a problem affecting the numbers of drivers and commercial applicants for years.

It’s high time to break new ground, both to advance the quality of training and to generate enthusiasm for the shipping industry among young people.

That is why we offer apprenticeships!


And now we are also rewarding the top apprentice in the first year of the programme

In recognition of their hard work, the top apprentice will receive free use of a company car for the following apprenticeship year. The car can be used both for business and private use, and free fuel is included.

We want to incentivise young people to give their best. With this APPRENTICE car, we are sending the message that hard work pays off
