Dream job in the logistics industry in Germany

Logistikbeirat Sachsen-Anhalt is looking for young talent in new ways

The Geman federal state of Saxony-Anhalt is using its locational advantage in the centre of Europe to develop its logistics industry. Logistikbeirat Sachsen-Anhalt (a logistics advisory committee based in Saxony-Anhalt) has decided to pool the experiences of service providers and users in this sector and network them. A major issue for the committee is the joint search for modern ways to attract specialist staff.

Martin Berg knew he wanted to be a train driver from the age of three, as both his parents worked on the railways. A secondary school certificate, passion for technology and reliability are the requirements for the three-year course at Mitteldeutsche Eisenbahn GmbH (MEG) in the city of Merseburg in the south of the federal state. In the second year of his course, Martin Berg had been on a shunting locomotive and in the third year he moved long, heavy trains on the electric locomotive. With a train driver's license in his pocket, he now controls shunting and electronic locomotives for MEG.

As a reliable dispatcher, Ariana Strauß controls their routes, so that they can start on time and reach their destination safely. "You have to be communicative and memorise a lot - this is the perfect job for me," says the young lady with a beaming smile. Both young employees are happy to stay in their homeland.

But how do young people find the job that suits them exactly? And what can companies do to help young people find their way into their businesses? Find out more in the complete article: http://lsaurl.de/vcr7
