Frankfurt-based Logistic Training Center (LTC), which is in the meantime one of Germany’s most advanced training set-ups for air cargo handling, warehouse staff and logistics training, goes a step further by having been accredited by the state of Hesse as a Further Educational Counseling Facility.
Taking logistics training a step further
It’s not an easy task having to train staff from step one in how to safely handle and document air cargo shipments as well as build up and control ULD movements and other air cargo related logistical tasks.
LTC was brought to life some years ago by Elke Wasser who has a long freight handling career behind her. In the meantime, LTC have also opened up a training centre in Stuttgart and plans are on the table for further facilities.
It was in early 2016 that LTC was officially accredited by IATA’s Training & Development Institute for Unit Load Device (ULD) operational training for personnel in accordance with 1.6.A of the IATA ULD Regulations.
Since then things have been moving fast for LTC and the company is now also involved in logistics training for other non-airport related logistical companies as well as expanding their service portfolio for airlines, handling agents and freight agents. Elke Wasser is also an active member of the FRA Air Cargo Community which was formed to communicate and coordinate the various service aspects within Frankfurt Airport’s cargo community.
Educational counseling is a further important step for LTC
At a ceremony hosted by the German State of Hesse’s Further Educational Department, Daniel Helling, LTC Area Manager Frankfurt and Jennifer Mc Donagh, LTC Project Manager, were presented with the accreditation by the Hessian Minister for Economy, Energy & Traffic, Tarek Al-Wazir and Claus Kapelke, CEO of Hessen’s Further Educational Department, which is responsible for furthering education throughout Hessen.
The new accreditation allows LTC the possibility to deepen ties with the personnel management of logistical companies within and outside of the air freight scene in order to counsel management on how to facilitate better and more advanced training methods.
Elke Wasser stated that “we are extremely proud and honoured to have received this accreditation from the State of Hesse and I am personally very thankful to our team who after much hard work and diligence enabled us to come an important step further in enhancing our training portfolio.”
