Mariana Vintila asked:
Hello, please tell me if you have a course for transport coordinator or transport dispatcher or if this course is what I am looking for
Hi there This is a short CPD course giving a broad introductory overview of freight transport services. It covers all modes of freight transport, including, road, rail and maritime. It is therefore not specific to either transport coordinator or dispatcher. My suggestion would be to look at this for an introduction, but then we can advise directly on potential qualification courses for you.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
