WiseTech Global’s online training arm has launched an international freight forwarding diploma. 

WiseTech Academy’s diploma has been developed to prepare students around the world for the role of international freight forwarder and covers all aspects of the global movement of cargo, relevant regulatory requirements, and conventions and barriers that impact the flow of trade.

The fully online and self-paced format allows students to start and finish at any time throughout the year.

Learning is delivered via multimedia content that includes interactive tools, videos, quick quizzes and a community forum.

“WiseTech is committed to supporting education and skills development in the logistics industry through affordable and accessible courses designed for professionals who work in global supply chains,” said Dr Tudor Maxwell, who leads WiseTech Academy at WiseTech Global.

“The fully online format of the WiseTech Diploma of International Freight Forwarding allows students flexibility to fit their studies around their work and personal lives, making it ideal for people who are transitioning into the industry or preparing to advance their career in international trade. They do not need to wait for the next student intake or work around scheduled class timetables.”

The diploma is made up of 16 courses covering the various modes of transport within the industry such as sea, air, road, rail and inland waterway and the combination of these through multimodal transport, logistics, warehousing and distribution.

It also addresses safety and security, liability and insurance, incoterms, global customs practices, handling of dangerous goods and the various technologies that support global trade.

And it includes a course on the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the global supply chain and how the industry is addressing its effective management in the future.

Participants can take any of the 16 courses as a standalone course to achieve a certificate of attainment. Once they complete all 16 courses they are awarded the full diploma certificate.

WiseTech Academy draws on WiseTech’s in-depth industry knowledge gained as the developer of CargoWise, the cloud-based logistics execution software system.
