Relocation – Motivation für Mitarbeiter?

Wenn der neue Arbeitsplatz im Ausland liegt

Haustier mit Koffer

Konzerne, Mittelstand und diplomatische Dienste, für alle Mitarbeiter, die in diesem Umfeld tätig sind, stellt sich möglicherweise irgendwann die Frage des Umzugs. Im Ausland wird eine Position besetzt. Der Umzug mit Familie und Haustieren stellt die Mitarbeiter oft vor ganz neue Herausforderungen. In vielen Fällen hilft die jeweilige Personalabteilung der großen Unternehmen, in einigen Fällen allerdings auch nicht. Dann heißt es für den wechselwilligen Mitarbeiter: Selbst Recherche betreiben.

Wie fliege ich mein Haustier von Deutschland nach China oder die Vereinigten Staaten? Von Peking nach Manila, oder gar von Rio de Janeiro nach Melbourne? Was ist zu beachten? Gibt es Quarantäne oder Probleme beim Gesundheitsschutz?

G.K. Airfreight Opens a New Office Munich

Tiertransport ab München

Major Expansion in Southern Germany, Animal Transport Services Vastly Expanded

Effective immediately, April 2012, G.K Airfreight Services GmbH, the leading pet and animal air transport shipping service will now also have a Munich Airport administrative and operations presence at Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss Airport.

Operations began April 10th, 2012, when GK’s seasoned animal transport specialists opened the new office which is located in Module F, Room #125, in the first floor of the Munich Airport Freight Terminal.

GK’s customers in those parts of Germany and other nearby countries will benefit from GK’s petshipping services in the new Bavarian location given the reduced distances to the Munich site as transient animals will enjoy shorter travel distances prior to flying to international destinations.

Waza zoological gardens and aquariums

WAZA - World Association of Zoos and AquariumsFor G.K. Air it is plain to see that with WAZA, the umbrella organisation for zoos, zoological gardens and aquariums, we have a significant partner at our side with an agglomeration of professional experience in all of their members.

Our team at G.K. Air like very much to work together with zoos since their professionalism makes the whole execution of the processes involved in the transport of animals so much easier as well as being much quicker in their reactions when possibly unexpected things occur. This warrants that the animals get the maximum care and attention possible and furthermore that the essential documentation for the animal transport is complete and up to date.
