The Faculty of Commerce collaborated with the Vietnam Logistics and Aviation School (VILAS) to recruit the “Logistics and Air Freight Service Management” course

(VLU12/8/2021) – In August 2021, the Faculty of Commerce at Van Lang University, in collaboration with the Vietnam Logistics and Aviation School (VILAS), recruited the short course in “Logistics and Air Freight Service Management” to provide knowledge upgrade for Logistics students.

Currently, the demands for Air Freight Service in Vietnam are constantly elevating during and after the pandemic. This trend happens because Vietnam is receiving great investments from developed countries such as the U.S.A., European nations, Japan, South Korea when businesses move away from China. Moreover, domestic enterprises also upscale and participate in the worldwide supply chains. Simultaneously, the explosion in e-commerce has dramatically influenced the freight industry. Therefore, there is an emerging demand for experienced staff in the Air Freight industry.

Aiming to provide Logistics students with relevant skills and knowledge on an international standard and upgrade the quality of Logistics and SCM workers, the Logistics Division under the Faculty of Commerce at Van Lang University, in collaboration with VILAS, has recruited the first intake for the short course in “Logistics and Air Freight Services Management” in August 2021.

The course should provide the students with knowledge of operating and exploiting Logistics and Air Freight Services for airline service providers, air freight terminals, and logistics service providers. It also offered the understanding of the importance of Air Freight in International Commerce, freight categorization, freight specification and arrangement methods according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations, security and safety in Logistics and Air Freight Service. Apart from the professional mastery, the students are required to develop skills in customer service, paperwork and study the existing market’s issues in SCM. Upon graduation, the students will receive the FIATA certificate as a competitive advantage when applying for overseas study or a job at big corporations.

We hope that the partnership between VLU and VILAS will continue to bear fruit to create more opportunities for the students.
