AVAAL has always promoted the vital importance of training to all levels of any organization involved in freight and logistics activity. The company continues to believe that training is a worthwhile investment in good times and bad. With the economic chill being felt across the business world, a properly trained staff will be essential to any business survival strategy. Today AVAAL celebrates the launch of its Freight Forwarding Fast Track training course, with the first session starting May 2, 2009. An “open house” preview and orientation was scheduled for today, where visitors had the opportunity to view presentations on the major topics covered in this course; such as details of logistics operations including documentation requirements in transportation by road, rail, water and air; warehousing, international trade, customs clearance, insurance, import-export documentation, and marketing.
The course was developed at the request of freight forwarding professionals following concerns about the critical international skills shortage in the supply chain and logistics industry.
This innovative approach to training has been designed by industry professionals and focuses on face-to-face interaction in a workshop format. This delivers an invaluable learning environment for participants through case studies that will improve skills and understanding that can be applied quickly and confidently to improve bottom line performance when the student returns to the workplace.
