August 17 - It's decision time for anyone wishing to attend the two-day training programme being run as part of the forthcoming Breakbulk Americas transportation conference and exhibition in Houston.

International 3PL network, the Project Professionals Group, which is organising the event in partnership with JoC Breakbulk Conferences, reports strong demand for places and advises that Beluga Shipping is the latest company to support the short course which is designed to fast-track project cargo management skills that otherwise may take years to acquire.

Beluga will join the sponsors supporting the Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management that will be offered. Port Corpus Christi is also a sponsor of the training that will be run over two days from October 14-15 in Houston.

Course trainer and the general manger of the Project Professionals Group, Kevin Stephens, said the support from the project forwarding industry was much appreciated and showed that they were committed to education and training that delivered a higher standard of handling services for clients.

"Understanding how to manage multimodal project cargoes is extremely challenging and up skilling through practical training is in everybody's best interests to ensure the successful delivery of the cargo,"

Mr Stephens said. Further information about the education course, including registration is available from theBreakbulk Americas event site at or via the education course link
