ProjectPitch highlights benefits of forwarding masterclass (Take advantage of Early Bird pricing)

The heavy lift, oversized transport and project logistics sector has a one-stop training day with the PPG Project Cargo Certificate for Forwarders, 3PLs, Clients and ECPMs masterclass on April 23 during  Antwerp XL.

Course co-ordinator Kevin Stephens said the training day format culminated with ProjectPitch – a comprehensive group exercise developed by industry and only available as part of the PPG Project Cargo Forwarding Certificate.

“This one-day masterclass differs from other training formats in that it is very interactive and not delivered in a static monotone format,” Mr Stephens said.

“Our masterclass covers a number of key training modules and has the additional and unique benefit of the ProjectPitch exercise that tests understanding of the key aspects of successfully managing the transportation of challenging cargos to meet the needs of clients, shippers and ship owners.”
