Customized training on Safe Food Transportation

In the spring of 2017 we, in collaboration with Gothia Logistics, have developed a new e-course Safe Food Transportation in Swedish and English for our approximately 100 drivers who are responsible for transporting food. We have used the Gothia Logistics customized systems by removing and adding course materials.

Since our drivers are of different nationalities and transport food in Europe, e-learning method is crucial to inform and ensure that the training is carried out in an approved manner. This is undoubtedly a flexible way for drivers to acquire knowledge at their convenience.

The course Safe Food Transportation focuses on quality and security during transportation according to the claims set by the EU and the National Food Agency. The participants must take the course and pass their final exams. Afterwards the participants can print out a certificate that can be presented to a supervisory authority. We get direct reports on the performance of the drivers and can therefore provide our customers the necessary certificates.

Thanks to this system we can coach all of our students, the ones who need extra support but also the ones who manage on their own. Through the system we can support the students either in their course book, by sending them an email or simply by calling them and asking how they are doing.

The purpose of the system is to help as many as possible to pass their courses. This proves that studying over the internet does not have to mean that you have to make it on your own.
