We asked Industry what You Needed

myfreightcareer and Front-Line Resources Management constantly strive to deliver what our industry needs.

To that end we asked our customers what they were looking for when employing a new entrantto the industry. The resounding message received was that the “new entrant employee” had to be Job Ready.

Job Readywas seen as someone who understood the basics of freight forwarding and was familiar with freight forwarding software packages.

With that in mind we developed the course that we believe delivers “Job Ready” new entrant employees to the market and are excited to announce that our next batch of “Job Ready” Trainees and Permanent and Temporary Employees are ready to hit the street.

What makes them “Job Ready

We put the participants through 50 hours of training over 2 weeks, resulting in them obtaining 4 units of the Certificate III in International Freight Forwarding. We use Cargowise1 in the training.

Obviously this is a benefit to companies using Cargowise1, but even those companies using other systems benefit from the exposure, as the participants understand what information is required to be input to any freight forwarding software program and where it is located on import/export documentation.

Our “Job Ready” Trainees and Permanent and Temporary Employees have successfully completed the following units from the Certificate III in International Freight Forwarding

1. TLIA2009 Complete and check import/export documentation
2. TLIE3002 Estimate/calculate mass, area and quantify dimensions
3. TLII0002 Provide freight forwarding information and customer service
4. TLIK2007 Perform electronic data Interchange to transmit shipping documentation

Don’t Miss Out

Act quickly as these quality candidates will disappear.

These “Job Ready” candidates are the answer, whether you are looking for:
• a Trainee;
• a Permanent Employee; or
• a Temporary Employee

Please contact myfreightcareer at mail@myfreightcareer.com.au if you are interested in a Trainee or Front-Line Resources Management at mail@frmstaff.com.au if you like to discuss Permanent or Temporary Employees.

Customs Licensing Review Industry Workshop

myfreightcareer were pleased to receive an invitation from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to attend their Licensing Review Industry Workshop in Canberra on Friday 20 January 2017.

The Front-Line Group, comprising the Registered Training Organisation myfreightcareer and Recruitment Specialist Front-Line Resources Management, specialise in the Global Logistics sector and have a unique perspective of the industry’s needs, gleaned from our dealings with companies and individuals in the delivery of:
• Customs Broking and other industry specific training
• Traineeships
• Recruitment Solutions

The Department advises the purpose of the workshop is to ensure they have an accurate understanding of three issues, identified by stakeholders, where there is a wide range of views. These issues are:
1. the role of the National Customs Brokers Licensing Advisory Committee;
2. whether one license should cover multiple establishments; and
3. whether to introduce classes of licenses for Customs Brokers.

myfreightcareer first made representations concerning Broker Licensing to the then Australian Customs Service in June 2005. It is of interest that our initial submission recommended:
• a review of the Broker Licensing process
• the introduction of classes of Brokers Licences
• the ongoing re-certification of Customs Brokers to ensure their “current competency” (now a reality via the “Continuing Professional Development” program).

Over the next 11 years myfreightcareer has continued to agitate for change to the licensing of Customs Brokers and we look forward to the opportunity to once again champion the views of the myfreightcareer and Front-Line Resources Management teams and our many clients, be they companies or individuals.

The “Long and Winding Road” will never disappear, but hopefully the workshop will let the DIBP know the way to a Customs Licensing System that will be relevant to the realities of conducting business in 2017 and beyond.

Please contact myfreightcareer on 1800 881 075 or email mail@myfreightcareer.com.au if you would like to receive our report on the outcomes of the workshop.
