If you’re nodding along, amped, and ready to dive into something that smells suspiciously like adventure, then welcome to the starting line of your international career odyssey at LEMAN. 

Two years, countless “Aha!” moments 

Yep, you read that right. Our trainee program spans a wild two years, blending the nitty-gritty of hands-on work with those lightbulb moments that come from actually learning something useful.  

You’ll be thrown into the mix from day one, joining forces with our team of seasoned (read: we’ve been around the block) freight forwarding experts. 

But here’s the kicker: it’s not just about us imparting ancient logistics wisdom onto you. Oh no. You’re here to shake things up, bring fresh ideas to the table, and maybe, just maybe, teach these old dogs some new tricks.  

Because let’s face it, staying ahead means staying updated, and who better to lead the charge than you, the bright-eyed, tech-savvy newcomers? 

LEMAN’s Trainee Program is your ticket to becoming part of the next generation of logistics legends, surrounded by experts who’ve seen it all but are itching to see what you can bring to the shipping table.
