Green mobility unites 6 logistics, mobility firms to launching traineeships
Lufthansa Cargo along with five other logistics and tech companies like time:matters, DB Schenker, Daimler Truck, The Lufthansa Innovation Hubs (LIH) and Berlin-based tech company ONOMOTION took another step towards a sustainable future by partnering with each other to create a traineeship programme called the Green Mobility Trainee (GMT) project.
As part of the programme, all participating companies are slated to submit projects linked to sustainability efforts that they are currently working on and LIH is expected to collect these projects and assign them to trainees who can then participate in them for six months. The total project is expected to run for 24 months, whereby the Green Mobility Trainees will have a chance to collaborate with a maximum of 4 different companies over the course of their traineeship. Trainees are expected to be scouted through a rigorous selection process in December via a series of ‘Selection Days’, after which five trainees will be selected for the programme.
As part of their traineeship, the trainees will be able to work with six industry leaders including Gesa Reimelt, Head of Product Engineering Global Powertrain & ePowertrain Trucks and Buses at Daimler Truck; Katharina Rath, Member of the Board of Management (Human Resources) at DB Schenker; Dorothea von Boxberg, CEO Lufthansa Cargo AG; Alexander Kohnen, CEO of time:matters; Christine Wang, Managing Director Lufthansa Innovation Hub and with Beres Seelbach, Founder and CEO of ONOMOTION in the mobility and logistics domains. Through the course of the programme, the trainees are expected to gain skills that can enable sustainable transformation and in supporting innovations that aid in lowering Co2 emissions in freight transport – with the help of sustainable, alternative fuels and innovative technologies in the air and on the ground.
“As CEO of Lufthansa Cargo the research and usage of Sustainable Aviation Fuel is a matter close to my heart. The reduction of fossil kerosene consumption by innovative technologies such as sharkskin technology is another step that will help to achieve the ambitious goal of CO2-neutrality in airfreight,” said Dorothea von Boxberg,Chairperson of the Executive Board and CEO of Lufthansa Cargo, while sharing the development on her LinkedIn page.
