Business school

As a skilled freight forwarder, you can live and work anywhere in the world. I started my career as a young freight-forwarding trainee in 1988. Looking back, the combination of hands-on experience and theory, I find, is the best way to learn. It gives you an opportunity to feel part of things from the very beginning: you are a part of the team and you contribute every day
