Our apprentice are on the move throughout Europe
RCG-Europe weeks for our apprentice in four international places.
Our internationalization is moving forward. In the same dimension the need of internationalization of education for our junior is developing as well. That’s the reason our apprentice instructor team, leaded by Franz Heißenberger, started the RCG Europe weeks ins 2013. These are international interships for our apprentices in the freight forwarding business. The apprentices may work together with our international colleagues in different places for four weeks. This project is grant-aided by the EU- support program Erasmus+ and IFA – an organisation specialiced to qualified employees change of the Austrian Economic Chamber of Trade, Commerce and Industry.

Nadine Freidl from Graz and Katharina Galler from Villach travelled to Rail Cargo Logistics – Croatia in Zagreb as well as Vanessa Rinnerbauer and Clemens Pohanka from Vienna rode to Rail Cargo Operator – CSKD in Prague.
The view veyond the horizin
During the internship, our apprentices received a lot of impressions. They have been abroad for a longer period for their first time and on their own. The got to know how it’s like to work in an international environment and benefit by seeing the most important places, as well as hidden cultural corners.
Instead of being doubtful and worried about unknown terrain, being active and study curiously as well as joyfully is the greatest profit for our apprentices.
Back in Austria they can incorporate their experiences to their daily routine and use it for personal benefit.
Nadine Freidl says:
„It is an anvantage of having an international intership in your CV.“
The program will be extended this year, including new destinations.
