“This is a non-technical course that delivers essential insights and skills that project forwarders need to stay in control of complex supply chain transportation issues,” Mr Stephens said.
“In just two days, achievement-oriented professionals will take back to the office enhanced confidence and skills that will enable them to improve their problem solving and communication with clients and service providers.
“We want to change the way you think about project forwarding using real-life examples and solutions. You will return to work and be able to apply the knowledge that you have learned in this workshop.”
Registration includes a USB Flash Drive with over 70 proven documents and all course presentation slides.
“The Port of Portland and the Port of Vancouver USA are both dynamic organisations and have put forward an excellent conference proposal and we thank them for their support and hospitality,” Mr Stephens said,
Mr Stephens said the 2018 conference dates had also been selected to also provide PPG members with the opportunity to visit the Breakbulk Americas conference and exhibition in Houston (2–4 October 2018), ensuring it was cost-effective to attend both events.
Mr Stephens said with the recommendation of the Port of Portland and Port of Vancouver USA the award-winning Benson Hotel had been selected as the conference venue with very attractive accommodation rates for members and guests.
