To me, the best thing about the freight forwarder education is that you work with something truly relevant. Everything we use has been transported – the clothes we wear, our furniture at home, IT equipment, medicine, food, etc. In addition to this, the training is extremely educational. You are constantly being challenged, and it is possible to deal with the challenges in a personal way.

In this line of business, the pace is high, and every day you face new challenges. If you are up for it, it is possible to have more and more responsibility over time. FREJA has shown trust in us as trainees from the very beginning, and you work according to the principle of “freedom with responsibility”.

Something I value very much in the freight forwarder education is the fact that you have many possibilities when you have completed your training. You acquire a lot of qualifications in areas such as planning, structuring, communication, economics, languages, etc. These are valuable qualifications that you may take with you further on in your professional and personal life.

The best thing about being a trainee is that you get to work in a dynamic environment where things are always developing. You are never bored, you constantly face new challenges which require your attention. During the two-year training period you get in touch with a lot of people in the business both at the workplace but also during school sessions.

As a trainee you are constantly being challenged – you need to deal with a lot of different issues, and you have to communicate with many different types of people. The education pushes your boundaries, which I consider to be an advantage, and you get the opportunity to test yourself. You are put in different situations which means that you develop personally and professionally every day.

The education makes you more open and you are forced to step out of your comfort zone. Because you are being forced to deal with new things, you learn something new every day. You constantly have new work assignments to deal with and this helps you expand you competencies in logic thinking, structuring, and prioritization.
