DHL attracts young professionals with sustainability focus

Once again this year, the Deutsche Post DHL Group was represented by DHL Paket GmbH, DHL Express GmbH, DHL Global Forwarding GmbH and DHL Freight at the Best Fair in the Wiener Stadthalle. From 7 to 10 March, visitors to the DHL booth were able to find out about career opportunities in the logistics industry and gain insights into the educational pathways.

In addition to the management, numerous employees from the various divisions gave concrete insights into their working practices. The students, career starters and apprenticeship seekers had the opportunity to get first-hand information about education and careers.

The young visitors were particularly interested in the strong sustainability focus. By 2050, the Deutsche Post DHL Group intends to handle its deliveries up to 100 per cent CO2 and emission-free. In addition, the company is attracting attention with its innovative delivery concepts for both urban and rural areas, such as the all-electric DHL StreetScooter and the DHL Cubicycle freight pedelec.

Due to the strong market growth and the use of new, innovative technologies, the logistics industry is becoming increasingly attractive for career and career changers. Therefore, DHL will continue to strengthen cooperation with Austrian universities, technical colleges and educational institutions in the future.
