Our Air & Ocean Logistics

management trainee programme

Our Air & Ocean programme provides cross-national expertise in airfreight and ocean freight logistics – and is therefore aimed at an international audience. Graduates from all over Europe – and beyond – go through four stations in 24 months. With each change of location come new experiences and responsibilities. During the obligatory stay abroad, you will be involved in multilayered projects and expand your network on an international level. In this way, you not only get to know our logistics via waterways and at lofty heights, but also experience the best possible preparation for a possible executive position as a further career step.

Networking which simply must be experienced awaits

  • With and in this Logistics management trainee programme, you will look behind the scenes of our airfreight and ocean freight logistics.
  • Of course, we will also introduce you to other product areas, our sales processes and further topics.
  • Your own initiative is in demand right from the start: You can initiate projects independently and lead them to a successful conclusion.
  • During your time abroad, you will constantly gather new contacts that will complement and enrich your international network.

What you bring to the table is sure to convince us

  • As a basis, you should have a Bachelor’s degree in Logistics or International Management/Business Administration, ideally with a focus on Logistics.
  • In addition, you have gained know-how in the logistics sector through training, internships or as a working student, ideally in air and sea freight.
  • International experience would be a big plus, and your very good command of English can be counted on.
  • Personally, you score with an ability to grasp things quickly and you are flexible and mobile.

We offer nothing less than unique opportunities

  • Our onboarding picks you up directly and puts you right in the middle of our friendly community – personal mentoring included.
  • Off-the-job training and workshops will prepare you for any new challenge.
  • You will receive valuable input from management as well as from other graduates, which will help you to make decisive progress.
  • A broad range of tasks allows you to take on responsibility right from the start, while flat hierarchies create an environment of trust.

After the programme is before the new career goal

The perfect connection is worth its weight in gold in logistics – this also applies, of course, to your subsequent options after the trainee programme. After all, many exciting specialist and executive positions in the Rhenus Group are waiting for strong personalities like you.

Whether in Germany or at our international locations – you can put your newly acquired knowledge and skills to good use in project management or as a management assistant, among other things. Product management and sales would also be possible fields of application for your expertise in airfreight and sea freight.

For example, how about helping us implement a new system, from conception to roll-out? Gap and data analyses as well as the training of key users and end users may be on the agenda. Are you interested in establishing and expanding international customer relationships? Here, too, we would like to rely on your support.
