“As an international trainee you will get the opportunity to dive in the transport and logistics industry, while travelling the world. That was what attracted me to the programme,” says Asta Lyngbo Carstensen, international trainee at Energy, Ports & Projects in Esbjerg, who is about to start her second year as a trainee in Singapore.

“I get to see how we work globally and gain a network all around the world. The highlight of my traineeship so far, was when I carried out an urgent delivery to Guyana. It was a pleasure to be given this responsibility, being only five months into my traineeship and new to the team. It felt great to get their full support and trust - and successfully carry out the delivery! It also gave me the opportunity to visit another office and meet local colleagues. This is the experience that attracted me to apply as a trainee.”
