Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy to advance logistics education with national association of freight and logistics

Abu Dhabi–UAE: In line with the UAE’s 2030 vision to foster a knowledge-based economy, the Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy (ADMA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL) to further the logistics education and training standards offered in the UAE.

Both organisations will work closely together to create and introduce new professional development programmes in the field of freight and logistics, while also offering globally recognised degrees, such as the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) Diploma.

“Combining NAFL’s expertise on global best practices and our state-of-the-art training facilities will not only provide talented youth with the opportunity to develop a skill set that is future ready but at the same time elevate the quality of freight and logistics services offered within the UAE.”

In addition to offering the International FIATA Diploma and courses in freight and logistics, the two parties will collaborate on formulating awareness programmes that will highlight the benefits of the market for prospective students in search for a rewarding career within an evolving and critical industry.

Under the terms of the agreement, ADMA will focus its efforts on marketing and delivering the new programmes, while NAFL is expected to develop and provide the specialised trainers to head up the courses and issue the related certifications and diplomas upon completion.
