Leading parcel delivery firm DPD recently became one of the first organisations nationally to enrol its team on the new International Freight Forwarding Apprenticeship Standard.

DPD’s International Division working with leading freight forwarding training provider Logistics Skills Alliance (LSA) have developed a bespoke blended learning programme for the DPD team to ensure the programme meets both their knowledge and skills development needs.

Logistics Skills Alliance’s James Billingham added “We have worked with employers and BIFA in developing a flexible International Freight Forwarding programme that we can offer nationally. Working with DPD we have an apprenticeship programme that provides customised training alongside training to support Freight Forwarders employer readiness for the new Customs Declaration System (CDS).”

The International Freight Forwarding Apprenticeship Standard was developed by a Freight Forwarders employers’ group, facilitated by BIFA. It covers core modules such as Customs Procedures, Freight Movement, Customer Service and Freight Costing. The programme is a level 3 apprenticeship with a recommended duration of 18 months.
