Professional Online Training

Universal Freight Organisation (UFO) is delighted to launch our highly anticipated eLearning Platform with our first comprehensive online training program - Heavy Transport. UFO is able to offer professional training from an industry expert at a heavily reduced cost from £150 per user. See our online brochure for full details.

Why heavy transport? Independent forwarders know that there is a ceiling when it comes to earning revenue from sea, road and airfreight shipments. Although the thought of branching into heavy lift and project cargo is appealing due to the often-healthy margins, the market is very different and the risks are far higher. The clear and highly effective 6 module online course consists of 66 x 10 minute sessions including narration, graphs, diagrams, video footage and photographs. When completed, the user will understand the practical, operational and engineering aspects of heavy transport and lifting projects.

The training is ideal for staff at the beginning of their career, offering employers a time saving and low cost alternative to workshops and seminars. However, as the training is comprehensive, senior level professionals will also benefit from the practical, scenario and video based course as it will encourage reflection on current practices.

UFO President & C.E.O., Rachel Humphrey says “Our global organisation covers over 105 countries so our affordable and easily accessible training is available to staff in emerging markets. The program enables everyone to compete on an equal footing with the top industry experts when it comes to learning the theoretical side of heavy transport, heavy lift and jacking & skidding.”

Each user receives a personal log-in so they can train at their own pace and track their advancement through each module via a progress bar.

Besides the benefits of not having to travel to workshops and seminars, there are additional advantages to the eLearning Platform such as being able to stop and start the training at the users’ convenience. A certificate is awarded upon completion of the course.

Future plans include other specialised areas as well as general cargo.
