  • FIATA Training
    To enhance the professional level of  Freight Forwarding and Customs practices, employees are encouraged to study towards the international FIATA Diploma. The learning pathway to the FIATA Diploma entails an incremental skills build up from the National Certificates in Freight Forwarding (NQF level 3 & 4) to four specialist FIATA modules followed by a final integrative assessment. The South African Association of Freight Forwarders (SAAFF) is the custodian of the FIATA qualification and commissions specialist training providers and educators to conduct the final examination. Apart from following the traditional learning journey towards acquiring the Diploma, employees who have developed their knowledge and competence in freight forwarding by means of work experience can request a recognition of prior learning assessment and afterwards sit for examination. Successful candidates receive their certificates from FIATA.


  • Personal Development Plans
    Employees are encouraged to take accountability for their personal development. The company provides support in this regard through development plans that are personalised to each individual and based on their specific development  needs. This allows the business to focus on ensuring competencies needing enhancement in respect of performance and career development is specifically targeted. This simply means that as a company we invest in your growth, your future and your career.
