Malay forwarders to get accredited
30 / 03 / 2009
THE Federation of Malaysian Freight Forwarders (FMFF) is to initiate accreditation of the country’s freight forwarders. The move comes in partnership with the Selangor Freight Forwarders and Logistics Association’s (SFFLA) introduction of five foundation courses and a diploma that can lead on to a degree in logistics.
SFFLA president Tan Ah Beng said: “The professional capacity-building programme is imperative if we are to ensure professionalism in the logistics industry.
“This is part of our ongoing education and training programme to keep our members up to date with the latest information and development relevant to the logistics industry,” Tan said.
In combination with this professional development plan from the FMFF and SFFLA, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry is to introduce a special services capacity development programme, which will fund accreditation, training, IT investment and merger and acquisitions.
