Every year, our young talents have the chance to embark on a multi-week internship at Rail Cargo Group (RCG) subsidiaries in Europe. This year, ten young railway professionals set out to learn more about freight transport in Croatia, locomotive driving in Germany, the port in Trieste, colleagues in Slovenia, and the Rail Cargo Terminal - BILK (RCT-BILK) in Hungary.
From Porto di Trieste to RCT-BILK
Croatia was all about the world of traditional railway professionals. Marlene and Angelina visited the team in Zagreb, learned everything there is to know about freight train transportation and rail infrastructure, and also improved their English skills on the side.
In Germany, Anna-Maria and Yasemin had the opportunity to ride in the driver's cab of a locomotive. During their free time, they explored Cologne, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam – all in an environmentally friendly way, of course, by train.
Italy couldn't be left out of the programme, especially when Trieste is home to the second-largest port in the upper Adriatic Sea. Leonie and Roman explored this place with its unique atmosphere, where the concept of freight logistics becomes truly impressive. They also made stops in Milan and Venice.
Hungary brought excitement for Viktoria and Kristina as they witnessed container loading at RCT-BILK and even got to operate a reach stacker themselves.
Alexandra and Julia, who are completing their training at our location in Carinthia, travelled to neighbouring Slovenia, where they gained valuable expertise and made important connections. Their work will continue to be connected with the Slovenian team in Koper and Ljubljana, with whom they are already sharing experiences.
