Jonas Schimske, 18

Apprentice for warehouse Logistics

…  has been with Lufthansa Technik Logistics in Hamburg for two years

“I am taking packaging units with airplane spare parts to the check-out area, where I sort the packages onto shelves for the couriers to pick up. I am currently in my second year of apprenticeship at Lufthansa Technik Logistics Services, a subsidiary of ­Lufthansa Technik. We have storage capacity for 245­ 000 different spare parts and we supply everything, from small bolts to large engine components. In addition to the regular courier services, the parts are often transported in Lufthansa Cargo freight planes. Spare parts for scheduled maintenance work are usually ordered well in advance. For emergency repairs we have a 24-hour standby service. The main aim here is to avoid delays due to downtimes, to get airplanes back in service as quickly as possible. We have a network of subsidiaries in 21 countries to help us do this.”
