AGL Ivory Coast has recruited the best trainees from its first class of the “Transit School” program, after 6 months of training within its structures. The closing ceremony for this first wave of trainees took place on Friday July 28, 2023 in Abidjan.
In partnership with the Ministry for Youth Promotion, Professional Integration and Civic Service, the program welcomed 20 young graduates with a BAC+2/3 in logistics or international trade. These students, aged 30 and over, have been trained in the management of customs disputes and suspensive regimes, the use of IT tools, invoicing, and English for forwarding agents.
During their training, these students were supervised by 15 AGL Côte d’Ivoire managers and supported by 3 experts from Youth Employment Agency. They acquired practical skills to become excellent transit agents, serving the development of AGL Côte d’Ivoire and the logistics sector in Ivory Coast.
«We are delighted to have taken part in this program, whose training has exceeded our expectations. We are now equipped to deal with transit issues, and are ready to serve wherever our skills are needed. » Inza Nabil Timité, spokesperson for the trainees.
