Route Vehicle Bodies - Sales

"During my Internship at Route, I had the pleasure of learning from the most amazing people. The internship made me realise what I wanted to do with my life and gave me the opportunity to gain experience in that field. The Internship is full of great opportunities, teaching you all the different aspects of the working world. I was constantly challenged, which encouraged me to work harder, learn as much as possible and make sure I succeed in everything I do. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity I received to be part of the Route Internship Program."

Stefan Beukes

Rustenburg Manager

"In 2016 I started an Internship in our Exports division. The Henred Fruehauf team is a great team to work with. There is a variety of positions to choose from in the group . You can work your way up in the company to benefit yourself. I started as a driver, worked my way up to a parts salesman and today I’m a depot Manager in Rustenburg. I believe in the motto "Hard work pays off". If you look after the company, the company will look after you. You will not regret your decision."
