March 6 - Acquiring the skills to be successful in the fast-changing and demanding world of project forwarding is the focus of the Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management course running in conjunction with Breakbulk Europe 2012 in Antwerp,

The ISO-accredited training will be held from 21-22 May, 2012 and is designed to provide attendees with the skills and knowledge to better manage difficult transport logistics. It is designed to appeal to project forwarders and related industries seeking to fast track skills and knowledge, or to refresh their approach on how to achieve success. 

The instructor-led training includes applied exercises and case studies. The non-technical course has been held at venues around the world and has received excellent feedback. 

Trainer Kevin Stephens has had extensive industry experience including managing international project cargo networks. Stephens said the training had been designed to enhance the required skills, and the ability to think quickly and act decisively. 

"Project forwarding is experiencing increasingly larger and bulkier cargoes from manufacturer to site with tight timeframes and high cargo values that means those involved must have the capabilities to avoid problems that can have a substantial downstream impact," Stephens added. 

"Successful project forwarding is a teamwork business, dependent on calm, experienced planning and excellent communication, which are all supported by the training offered in this course. 

"Attendees will be provided with the tools, templates, advice, and best practices to improve their performance."
