The Middle East’s leader in Freight & Logistics Training

The NAFL is well placed here in the UAE to deliver the Diploma program using the full range of training methods available. We believe that adults learn ‘best by doing’ so, although there will always be a need for some lecture style sessions, traditional classroom ‘chalk and talk’ methods will be minimized. Emphasis will be placed on practical exercises, case studies and visits to see actual operations at work.
