19 new trainees will start their apprenticeship at the logistics specialist, LOXX, in Gelsenkirchen on 1 August 2023. Following a seminar related to launching their training in Essen, they will spend their first day at the company’s business site on 4 August. The logistics company, LOXX, which is part of the Rhenus Group, is also looking for new trainees for 2024.
Twelve of the new employees are launching their career at LOXX as aspiring clerks specialising in freight forwarding and logistics services – and two of them are completing a sandwich bachelor’s degree course in logistics management. Six of the future warehouse logistics specialists and one budding IT employee, who will specialise in developing applications, are starting their training too. Their new teams will give them a warm welcome to the firm. However, before the trainees start their everyday work in the freight forwarding business, they will learn about issues such as the principles of office communications and organising themselves at the seminar entitled “Fit for Training”.
The new team members will regularly move from one department to another at LOXX and get to know all the different task areas required for everyday logistics operations. The trainees will learn about handling goods at the warehouse and discover everything necessary to deal with the different items and products in the proper manner – for example, those originating in the chemicals sector. The future clerks will be responsible for advising customers, for instance, in the customer services department or will plan journeys for trucks. The computer science trainee will support the company’s internal IT department.
“We’re delighted to be able to welcome the new trainees to our team. We were already able to get to know them personally at a trainee rally held in June,” says the Trainee Officer, Melanie Herhold. She will be accompanying the aspiring candidates during their training course together with André Wehner, the Warehouse Training Officer.
The application phase for the training places for the coming year, 2024, will already start in the middle of September. LOXX, a company that has been based in Gelsenkirchen for decades, is looking for motivated employees in the region.
