I started in our Air & Ocean export team and went to London the year after to gain experience in sales. This is a big advantage of our traineeship: the possibility of moving within European branches. After that, I went into outside sales at our Rotterdam office, and a few months later I was asked to lead our branch in Paris: a massive challenge with only 2,5 years experience, but an opportunity I wanted to grab with both hands! This shows the largest benefit of our traineeship: the growth opportunities.

When I started working at Mainfreight, I did not expect the multiple facets that the job of an import operator entails. Working as an import operator in the A&O branch, means I’m responsible for the logistics operations of 40 different customers at the same time. Because each of them are different and the logistics industry is experiencing unprecedented challenges, I have learned a lot in a short time. On top of that I get to learn from so many people. I work with our sales team, customs team, and export teams around the globe in order to improve our customer service. All of this is enabled by Mainfreight’s culture, it supports your growth, allows you to learn from your mistakes and gives you the space to make decisions for customers. It’s a great space to work in as a trainee.
