Project cargo training focuses on competitive advantages

July 8 - Specialist training designed to deliver competitive advantages through higher levels of reliability and service by project cargo managers will be available as part of the education component for attendees at the 21st Annual Breakbulk Americas Tra

The Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management will be offered over two days (October 14-15), through a joint venture initiative between the JoC Breakbulk Conferences (a division of UBM Global Trade) and international overdimensional cargo network, Project Professionals Group.

The project cargo training course is designed to fast-track skills that otherwise could take many years to acquire and was developed at the request of industry representatives who recognised the international skills shortage in the heavy lift freight forwarding sector.

According to the PPG, the training blends project cargo knowledge with essential business communication skills, and has proved to be a powerful combination that encourages course attendees to think differently about the way they do business.

The course has been successfully held in Mumbai, Bremen and Singapore and is open to all companies involved with the management of heavy lift project cargoes, and overdimensional freight forwarding.

Further information about the education course, including registration. Is available from the Breakbulk Americas event site at or via the education course link at
