Kuehne+Nagel pioneers a dual logistics education programme for Moscow students
- Dual education programme for Kuehne+Nagel’s Moscow office
- Developed together with the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce (AHK)
- Students will be granted an internationally recognised certificate
Kuehne+Nagel, together with the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce (AHK), has developed a dual education programme specifically for 3PL requirements. The goal of the programme is to expand theoretical knowledge of students at the Moscow College of Automobile Transport No. 9. The students will gain valuable hands-on experience in a large corporation and will be granted an internationally recognised certificate issued by the AHK.
Dual education is a widely used method in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and is very popular among young people who, for a number of reasons, are not able to pursue higher education, but nonetheless wish to further realise themselves in business. Dual education helps integrate academic study and work at the corporation and paves the way for immediate participation in business processes. Upon graduation, the students can continue to work and develop within the organization.
Kuehne+Nagel’s project in Russia differs for similar initiatives primarily because it provides training for office workers, and not technical or warehouse workers. Based on educational and professional standards established in the Russian Federation and Germany, the programme runs for one year and a half without interruption. During this time, programme participants enhance their professional skills and gain an understanding of Kuehne+Nagel’s culture, its strategy and operations in detail.
“As one of the leading global logistics providers, we know first-hand how important well-trained and educated staff is in our rapidly developing and changing industry. My own career started with a dual education, 38 years ago.” says Perry Neumann, President Cluster Russia + CIS and General Director of Kuehne+Nagel Russia. “Building upon the longstanding experience with dual education in the German speaking countries, we are happy to pool our efforts with the AHK for the benefit of our future logistics experts, our customers and the logistics market in Russia.”
With over 80,000 employees at 1,400 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne+Nagel Group is one of the world's leading logistics companies. Its strong market position lies in Sea Logistics, Air Logistics, Road Logistics and Contract Logistics, with a clear focus on integrated logistics solutions.
