World Food Logistics Organization Launches Cold Chain Training in Australia
30 October (Arlington, Virginia) - The World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO), a Core Partner of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), held its flagship training program 21-23 October in Melbourne, Australia. The WFLO Institute is a three -day industry-specific program for professionals engaged in temperature-controlled logistics, offering more than 40 classes taught by leading experts in the industry.
The inaugural WFLO Institute Australia had 36 participants registered as year one students from companies including Americold, Breeze Logistics, BSL Logistics, Doboy Cold Stores, Emergent Cold, Laverton Cold Storage and Woolworths Group.
“We had a strong level of support for our initial launch of this program in Australia,” stated Don Dick, WFLO Chairman and President of Dick Cold Storage. “I was so impressed with how engaged and invested the students were in the classes.”
In addition, there were 20 faculty members teaching 16 classes over the three days. These leading experts taught classes ranging from warehouse operations to customer service, food safety and automation to warehouse and personal development. The program enabled students to participate in group activities, share stories and experiences and build relationships with their peers.
The WFO Institute Australia will return to Melbourne in October 2020. The next set of WFLO Institute training programs will take place in the United States – 12-15 January in Tempe, Arizona and 9-12 February in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information on the Institute program visit, click here.
