Your international transport clerks will be better skilled in all aspects of their job - improving the efficiency of your logistics operation.


The programme

The Level 2 Certificate in International Trade and Logistics Operations (QCF) has been designed for those individuals who are involved in planning and organising the international transport and movement of goods.  The qualification has been developed by Skills for Logistics to meet the needs of the industry.  The Level 2 Certificate in International Trade and Logistics Operations is a combined qualification that forms both the competence and knowledge elements of the Intermediate Apprenticeship.

The programme ensures that clerks in freight forward, import and export understand the relationship between their role and business success.  Duties could include administration, customer service for processing export and insurance documentation, customs clearance and organising the movement of goods by road, rail, sea or air.  The aim of the programme is to ensure staff have the knowledge, skills and confidence to contribute to business success.
