The National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL) has held an open Forum on FIATA Logistics Academy (FLA) to give out distinction certificates to their top trainees who got 95% and above from various freight organizations.
Further, the new schedule for the coaching and management courses were announced. This e-learning platform is not limited to logistics courses but has leadership, management, business etiquette and much more.
The forum highlighted how FIATA Logistics Academy (FLA) has moved towards fulfilling its mission to add value to FIATA members by positioning training, development, and research in freight logistics as a priority FIATA deliverable.
It also emphasized how to work towards attracting and assembling best practices, applications and training programs available in academic and vocational training in the supply chain management and international logistics industry and also focusses on management, leadership, international relations, social media etc.
“I will continue to advocate programs and activities of the Association to enhance our members knowledge and also I will especially focus on university students as well as UAE nationals to increase the number of professionals in this field,” Nadia Abdul Aziz the president of NAFL, said of the event.
Aziz emphasised the need to bring more nationals into the logistics industry, given the robust growth forecast for the UAE and wider GCC region during the next five years.
“Our rulers have the highest investment on transport, infrastructure and freight projects, job growth is highest and also industry growth is the top until 2021,” she said. “We will automatically raise standards when we have an educated and trained [national] workforce who believe in best work practices and quality services.”
