In Summer 2015 54 Trainees started at Leschaco

At 7 of the 21 sites of the Leschaco Group many young people successfully started into their professional career this summer. In total, 54 new apprentices were welcomed at the Group of companies worldwide.

Leschaco consistently pursues the objective to promote young professionals. “We view this engagement as an investment in the future. Only the very good qualification and training of our junior talents guarantee the fulfilling of the miscellaneous tasks of a logistics service provider in the future. Our trainees and students of today are the employees of tomorrow.”, says Jörg Conrad, Owner of the Leschaco Group.

The globally operating logistics services provider offers at its international locations different training programs. In Germany the focus lies on trainings as “Kaufleute für Spedition und Logistikdienstleistung“, „Kaufleute für Büromanagement“, „Fachinformatiker“ and „Fachkräfte für Lagerlogistik“ as well as on the course of studies „Bachelor of Arts B.A. (Logistik)“ and „Bachelor of Arts B.A. (Internationale Wirtschaft)“. A solid 95 percent of the trainees generally remain with the Leschaco Group after successfully completing their training periods.

For Leschaco, qualified training of young people means a great deal more than just meeting the requirements of the training schedule. Besides the transfer of professional know-how for a future career, with us you can look forward to numerous additional possibilities that go beyond the “compulsory program”. Among them is e.g. the training of apprentices by apprentices, exam preparation courses or the training of social competence.

Within logistics, international competence is a key qualification. Therefore the „Apprentice Exchange Program“ is an integral part of the Leschaco training package. The subject of this mission is a temporary foreign assignment for apprentices with good performances in one of the affiliates abroad. The company thus gives their trainees the possibility to deepen their intercultural understanding and professional skills at international level.

Furthermore Leschaco stands for the promotion and support of the idea of lifelong and practical learning in the international economy and logistics. Hence, for many years the company has been involved for example in application trainings at schools and presents the work of a Freight Forwarder to pupils. Every fourth Thursday in April of each year Leschaco open its doors at the headquarters on the Kids Day to schoolchildren and provide interesting insights into the complex tasks of an international logistics service provider. Employees of the company lecture on the subject of sea freight at institutes of higher education and as a sustaining member Leschaco supports selected educational institutions.
