The FIATA Logistics Academy facilitates collaboration in the area of training and education between Association Members of FIATA as a means of keeping members up to date with educational developments in the industry.
The FLA assesses strategic training and education priorities, identifies new opportunities and develops insightful blueprints for the freight forwarding’s industry growth.
We work with Association Members represented by FLA Mentors to exchange ideas and experiences to promote knowledge among members and the rest of the community. By promoting training offerings developed by Association Members, the FLA increases value for all of its members.
For example, in March 2015 at the FIATA Headquarters Session in Zurich, Switzerland, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between FIATA and the CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT FORWARDERS ASSOCIATION, INC. -CIFFA-. The ceremony marked a milestone in the lead up to the accomplishment of the FLA’s mission. Francesco Parisi, President of FIATA, and Ruth Snowden, Executive Director of CIFFA, signed a Memorandum of Understanding which sets out the commitment to promote the Shipping Lithium Batteries by Air.
