I am glad that I have attended my Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses with TLA. Through the courses, I have better understanding on how forwarders and 3PLs operate. This helps me in carrying out my job more smoothly. I am able to pre-empt the possible problems that I may face for each shipment and work together with the service providers to minimize disruptions to the shipments.
