  • Training Cycle of Purchase in Transport

    As a transport purchaser you should constantly be up to date about new trends and new regulations, and be able to handle them in a flexible way. The stakes are high, the complexity grows because of the volatility of petrol prices, the growing importance of the government (infrastructure, free traffic of services, more strict regulations...), the shift to multimodal transportations, and the new initiatives in the field of sustainability and "greenn logistics" will be presented in the training.

    Target audience: buyers of transportation, transport manages and purchase managers of shipping companies and logistical service providers

    The training cyle "Purchase and outsourcing of transportation" is composed of 7 parts. In the first 2 parts you acquired an insight in the setup of a well-founded purchase strategy for transport, and in how, where and when you should check if your subcontractors are in line with the fiscal and social regulations. In the other parts we have a look at the several ways of transportation.
    * Market analysis and purchasing strategy for transportation
    * Fiscal and social legislation about transportation
    * Transportation by road (city distribution, small packages, etc.)
    * Inland waterway shipping and SSS - sea freight
    * Train transportation - air freight
    You can subscribe for each part individually, but it is best to combine the first 2 general modules with 1 or more specialised modules

    "The training Purchase in Transport is a wonderful initiative of VIB and makes the connection between the purchase and the niche industry of transport. I believe it is an enormous added value to have several experts highlight the different ways of transportation. The training has introduced me to new insights about our purchasing strategies and has allowed me to focus on how we would like to manage our range of logistical service providers", David Hofmans, Head of Import Departement, Colruyt Group - Dreamland
