Registered since January 2006 as a private career college by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities; Avaal Technology, based in Brampton, ON has achieved several important markers in its short history. The company created a Dispatch Specialist course based on the Loadlink freight matching technology platform operated by TransCore Link Logistics. This successful collaboration between Avaal and TransCore has enabled 500 students to achieve the accreditation in the short span of four years. Avaal presented a commemorative plaque to TransCore’s Claudia Milicevic in appreciation of this relationship.
One of the students from the very first batch of graduates received the Avaal Alumni Entrepreneur 2009 award presented by the chief guest, Mr. Harinder Takhar, Minister of Government Services for the Province of Ontario. Mr. Joga Singh of Kandola Brothers Transportation rose from humble beginnings of owning one truck at the time of his graduation to currently operating a fleet of 44 trucks. Mr. Singh thanked the Award Selection Committee and acknowledged that a great deal of his success could be attributed to the course. Through the comprehensive hands-on personal training, he acquired practical business operating skills and know-how to profitably use transportation technology to reduce costs, improve productivity and enhance customer service.
Avaal announced that they have recently set up a Department of Transportation compliant 24 hour Drug Testing Centre fitted with the latest technology. This lab will enable Canadian transportation companies to send their employees to get pre-employment, accident and random drug and alcohol testing at any time of the day or night, throughout the year.
