This year too, epas is fulfilling its training responsibility and is offering three young people the start of their professional lives. Since the beginning of this week, epas has been employing a total of eight trainees in the professions of “merchant for forwarding and logistics services” and “specialist for warehouse logistics”. Elias Geerken (19) has been doing an internship in our port operations since April this year and was able to gain initial experience at the terminal. Mike Köhm (19) begins his training right after his school career and his voluntary social year. Over the next three years, the two young men will learn how to handle goods, handling equipment, data processing and how to attach and stow general cargo shipments and project cargo. David Bachmann (18) will build on his previous experience in the industry as part of his training as a businessman for freight forwarding and logistics services. Communication and organization form the basic craft for holistic logistics processes and globally linked logistics processes. At epas he learns how to communicate with shipping companies, freight forwarders, service providers and customers. “In addition to the transfer of knowledge, we also focus on the individual support of the trainees,” says Mirja Schmidt, training officer at epas.
