A port, my job

Railway workers in operational service - train driver and transport specialists (m/f/d)

Transport and logistics; for us, it's not just about heading for the coast. A large part of the goods and commodities on the continent are also transported by rail. That requires qualified staff who know how to manoeuvre these goods. Our railway workers drive trains in local and long-distance freight transport operations. This starts with smaller 1,000 kW locomotives and goes all the way up to heavy 4,000 kW trains. This also means that: As early as during their training, our employee are taught everything to familiarise them with electrical controls, motors and drives. They are also directly involved in the design of transport processes and ensure that the trains are completed properly, safely and on time.
