There is no denying that a functioning supply chain is the backbone of the economy. The shortage of skilled workers has therefore become a decisive challenge for the economy in almost all cities and regions, especially in this area.


In many places, individual companies can no longer solve this problem on their own. This requires more far-reaching, joint and sustained efforts. Forces, competencies and resources must be pooled, initiatives networked. The regions are asked to invest in good specialist marketing in order to become more visible to employers, employees and investors.

Our range of services in the area of ​​securing and attracting skilled workers is broad and ranges from information on current market data to our regional job exchange and campaigns and initiatives for skilled workers at home and abroad.

We support companies in their search for local and international specialists and advertise the work location Fürnitz|Carinthia at home and abroad. In this way, Fürnitz – and Carinthia beyond that – is becoming more internationally visible among specialists, but also among students, and more attractive as a target region.

With our projects in the area of ​​personnel and specialist marketing, we would like to present the diverse world of logistics and draw attention to the many career opportunities in the industry in order to counteract the shortage of apprentices and specialists and to promote further training opportunities in logistics.

This includes, for example, the already implemented Logistics Career Center Carinthia, an online job exchange of the LCAS free of charge for companies in the field of transport|logistics ( Employers can use this job and career platform for the logistics sector to advertise their jobs and internships free of charge. Students, graduates or “newcomers” can check the platform and look for the right job. Thereafter they apply directly to the company. The platform is marketed internationally via the LCAS social media channels and is primarily aimed at the neighboring regions in the Alpe-Adria region. The platform is also to be expanded to include the input of job seekers.

If necessary, LCAS also provides support in the complex application process for the Red-White-Red Card (RWR). Ideally, companies come to us before submitting an application. Together with the applicant, we look at whether an RWR card is promising in the present case. We then support you with the formalities, check whether all documents are complete and are also happy to help you fill out the documents. In this complex area, we cooperate closely with the AMS labor market service and the residence authority in Carinthia.

LCAS also organizes tailor-made training and courses in cooperation with external training providers, including BFI Carinthia and WIFI Carinthia. The focus is primarily on extra-occupational courses, training courses and seminars, also held by specialists from the areas of warehousing, logistics, export, forwarding, transport, digitization and sustainability.

The focus is on practice-oriented seminars that offer a good combination of well-founded theory and practical experience. The aim is to give the seminar participants concrete implementation tips and best practice examples for their everyday work and thus ensure that the necessary requirements can be implemented in the company.

The training courses take place as face-to-face seminars in external training centers, on the premises of LCAS or ÖBB and in-house training courses according to company requirements – if necessary (pandemic, for logistical reasons), the training measures are also offered as online or hybrid events.

In addition, LCAS actively presents the logistics location of Carinthia as a future-oriented region for living and working in selected target markets abroad and at home (e.g. fair BeSt) and supports local companies in their national and international search for workers and students.

Do you need employees for your Carinthian company in the field of logistics and mobility? Would you like to spread the search, if possible, at home and abroad?

Are you looking for interesting and, if necessary, tailor-made qualification offers for your existing staff?

Or are you a trainer for a specific subject of logistics & mobility and would like to offer a course or a seminar at the hub LCA-Süd?

Then get in touch with us right away! We are happy to support you – free of charge and professionally.
