Taiwan, August 17, 2011 - Weiss Röhlig, a leading provider of logistics services, is expanding its graduate recruitment program in Taiwan to help develop the logistics professionals of tomorrow.

The program now in its third year was launched in 2008 in collaboration with the China University of Science and Technology in Taipei.

“Identifying and developing talented young professionals for the logistics sector is one of the industry’s greatest challenges. Our collaboration with the university has been very beneficial for the students, who have the opportunity to develop their skills and understand how a logistics company operates,” said Holger Stoelker, Weiss Röhlig, Managing Director, Taiwan.

Students sign a contract for a year with Weiss Röhlig, when they finish the third year of their degree course with the University’s Department of Aviation Service and Technology.

They then undergo basic training in all aspects of freight forwarding and logistics management with Weiss Röhlig.

“From Weiss Röhlig’s perspective we have offered a number of the graduate trainees full time positions at the end of their graduate training year, providing us with a good source of talent to help us grow in the future,” added Stoelker.
