Behind the Scenes with Class!

A special tour hosted by Hahn Airport gives the students from “Traben-Trarbach, Realschule Plus” a behind the scenes look at cargo operations at VG Cargo GmbH. (21 May 2015)

Questions about High-Tech Security Systems and IT, the challenges dealing with Dangerous Goods, Live Animals and – Heavy Metal – (Oversize Cargo) were answered during the tour “land-side, inside and airside” of the cargo terminal (bldg. 860). The students and teachers were also interested in apprenticeship programs as well as the specialized training related to professions in and around the industry including what 24/7/365 means in connection with supply chain and global economics.

The team at VG Cargo was truly impressed with the level of interest and knowledge regarding aviation and airport operations that the students shared with them during the tour and enjoyed this special opportunity to show how cultural diversity and teamwork are key success factors to their work.
