Warehouse logistics technician, Federal VET Diploma

You’ll monitor incoming goods independently, help with unloading goods, as well as preparing, packing and loading them. You’ll also learn to keep your composure during hectic periods and not to lose track of things. A placement in delivery adds exciting and enriching variety to your apprenticeship.

  • Be physically resilient and possess manual skills
  • A head for figures

Training and vocational school

The apprenticeship lasts for three years.

You’ll also undertake placements at distribution and in one of Swiss Post’s large distribution centers. You’ll acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge at vocational school or on intercorporate and internal courses.

Swiss Post provides training places at the Dintikon, Mägenwil and Villmergen logistics centers.
