Conqueror partners with CIFFA to offer freight forwarding courses

Conqueror Freight Network, the largest exclusive network worldwide, in a bid to offer members the most necessary and innovative benefits, has opened an Online Academy to provide freight forwarding courses. The inaugural course is on International Transportation and Trade which started last Friday. More than 20 students have enrolled it with the aim to reach new goals and confidence while boosting their productivity, enhancing their skills and even preparing them for greater responsibilities.

In order to provide students with the best training, Conqueror Freight Network has partnered with The Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA), a certified training provider with more than 60 years of experience in education. These courses have been completed by more than 10,000 learners globally.  CIFFA offers two different skill levels of courses on freight forwarding.

The first Course is the International Transportation and Trade, which is about the foundations of international freight forwarding, how to manage risks by selecting the appropriate Incoterm, how to calculate freight charges and load shipments, types of equipment and documentation used to move goods.

Antonio Torres, President and Founder of Conqueror states: “We are excited of the high demand that the International Transportation and Trade Course has had among our members. It is fundamental to have a deep knowledge of logistics to provide a successful service, but it is not always easy to find specific training within the sector. That is why we have decided to give this opportunity to our members. We believe that these training courses will enhance their capabilities and open new chances within their businesses.”

The second course, Essentials of Freight Forwarding, offers lessons in international payment methods and cargo insurance, knowledge about commercial documents and their completion, export packaging, cargo security, and alternative transport solutions to enable freight forwarders to provide the best quote option to their customers.

The educational programmes imparted by CIFFA are specifically intended for both people already working in the freight forwarding industry who would like to go further in their knowledge, and starters who would like to begin their journey in the industry.

Additionally, these courses are offered entirely online, using asynchronous delivery, so they can be accomplished at the speed the student is comfortable with. Each lesson is fully interactive putting the student in real world freight forwarding scenarios.

Conqueror has also established a partnership with Container xChange – a neutral online platform, used by 600+ freight forwarders who offer a wide range of training material about the leasing container industry. This way, Conqueror can offer a SOC Container Masterclass delivered by Container xChange as a complement to the other two courses. The SOC Container Masterclass provided by Container xChange, is a comprehensive, “everything-you-need-to-know” course about handling Shipper Owned Containers. All members who enrol in one of the logistics courses offered will be given access to this Masterclass.

Investing in training courses will not only enable agents to specialize and go deeper in the freight forwarding industry, but also, it will provide the adequate skills to open their companies to new opportunities.
