    Based on my previous expertise with the Maersk study trip, I am confident that this will again be a very stimulating and interesting experience! I advice all young procurement professionals, in whatever business niche, to apply. You can learn a lot from a different organization and fellow professionals, while also providing valuable insights to a company such as Jungheinrich. It’s up to you!
