Vocational Training Programme for the Freight Logistics Sector (VTP) 貨運物流業職業訓練課程

The Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics Limited (HAFFA), works alongside the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK), and with funding support from the Hong Kong Government via the Hong Kong Logistics Development Council (LOGSCOUNCIL), has developed a VTP in the Airfreight and Seafreight sectors. The VTP will provide industry newcomers with a structured curriculum which will greatly enhance the skills and capabilities of the local workforce.

 

The VTP will provide training in basic technical skills, industry-specific knowledge and sound implementation guidelines of freight operations. This will assist newcomers and those who wish to refresh their skills in acquiring both practical knowledge and hands-on skills, enabling them to make immediate contributions to the industry once in the workplace.

Unlike other programmes that focus on the theoretical aspects, this programme provides practical knowledge and skills that are crucial for business operations and the logistics industry at large.

 

Programme Organizers:

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) 香港運輸物流學會

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong, was first set up in 1968, and is the professional body for those engaged in various sectors of transport and logistics, including air, sea and land, for both passengers and freight transportation in Hong Kong.

Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics Limited (HAFFA) 香港貨運物流業協會

The Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics Limited was established in 1966, and is responsible for setting industry standards as well as providing educational courses which enhance the professional standards of the freight forwarders and logistics providers in Hong Kong.

 

Programme Sponsors:

Hong Kong Logistics Development Council (LOGSCOUNCIL) 香港物流發展局

Formed in 2001, the Hong Kong Logistics Development Council is an advisory body comprising members from the public and private sectors. It provides a platform for members to discuss and coordinate matters concerning logistics development in Hong Kong.

 

Background

The freight forwarding industry is lacking a structured and day-to-day practical training programme. Companies can only arrange internal training such as on-the-job training by supervisors who may not be fully equipped with necessary teaching techniques or a comprehensive programme.It is costly and the outcome of staff performance is uncertain. Both the CILTHK and HAFFA took an active role in developing a structured training programme to standardize the internal training procedures for both SME and larger-sized companies. By joining the VTP, more of your resources can be focused on the operations, leading to higher productivity.

Apart from the efforts made by both organizations, other industrial associations also voiced their supports for the programme. Please find the press releases (English / Chinese) for your kind information.

On behalf of the CILTHK and HAFFA, we would like to highly recommend this VTP to you, and please have your Training / Personnel / Human Resources Department to consider this as an alternative to your internal training programme.?Unlike other programmes that focus on the theoretical aspects, this VTP provides practical knowledge and hands-on skills that are crucial for business operations and the logistics industry at large, your staff will be trained and able to make immediate contributions to your company once in the workplace.

We would like to encourage you to consider supporting your staff who attend this VTP by:

Ø      Making special arrangements such as:

n  "allowing them to leave the office early so as to attend the class on time",

n  "offering them paid-leave to attend the class", and/or

Ø    Sponsoring partial or full amount of the course fee.

With your great support, trust that the staff can improve or enhance his work skills and so his inclination to excel in the workplace will be stronger.As the preferred regional transport and logistics hub, Hong Kong needs a well-trained and efficient workforce to cope with increasingly sophisticated services in the freight and logistics industry and to maintain its position, we believe the VTP can help our industrial practitioners to achieve just that. Please encourage your staff to enroll the course now!
