Fit for the first logistics league. Our lateral entrants training programme “Fast Forward”

You have completed a commercial apprenticeship and would like to set out on new professional horizons? Do you see yourself as an organizational talent and prefer to think in terms of solutions rather than problems?

Welcome to DSV's training programme for lateral entrants in cooperation with SSIB - Swiss School for International Business! In just three months we will get you ready to start in the first logistics league - including a certificate of completion and a permanent employment relationship with DSV! How we do this? With intensive training and support, with competence and empathy.

You will complete a 6-days intensive course at SSIB where you will learn the basics of international trade that is followed by a two-day additional training in international transportation given by experts from DSV Air & Sea. You will be supported by a professional team of DSV experts and SSIB trainers from module to module and will receive personal feedback during your training.

A DSV mentor is available during your training to answer your questions and concerns. And of course you will also receive all the support you need from other employees while on site in the DSV office. Equipped with the 1x1 of the air and sea freight forwarder and an SSIB certificate as Sachbearbeiter/-in Import/Export mit SIHK-Diplom (export clerk), you can take your next career step as a certified freight forwarder at DSV Air&Sea AG.

Fit for DSV

Air and sea freight all over the world

Negotiate, organise, network, exchange, schedule, control, communicate, overview, collaborate, learn... Move!

At DSV we are always moving things, especially in the air and at sea, all over the world. But what moves us most of all are the people who make this possible. Around 75,000 employees in more than 80 countries work to offer great customer experiences and high-quality services. We are freight forwarders with heart and mind - and we move ourselves forward every day.

Logistics is a business by people for people. We love short distances, quick decisions and act flexibly and pragmatically. We do that with great success. We are currently the third largest forwarding and logistics service provider in the world.

Our course is sustainable growth - for this we need people and talents like you.
