Kevin Birch, Managing Director at TRS, enthuses, “We are very excited about the launch of our International Freight Forwarding Skills Bootcamp. Thanks to funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority, we can offer an essential industry skills course at a greatly reduced rate. We are very proud to be running this programme in conjunction with BIFA, which will deliver some essential modules.”

BIFA, central to this collaboration, is the leading trade association for UK companies engaged in international freight transport. Its deep-seated expertise in the sector makes it the ideal organisation to partner with to address employers’ skills needs.

SMEs can access the training for £200 plus VAT, while larger employers with over 250 employees can enrol their staff for £600 plus VAT.
