More than 1300 applicants in transport and logistics businesses have received a total training value of about $7.25 million from a funding program.

The Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) was successful in lodging applications under the Federal Government’s Enterprise Based Productivity Places Program (EBPPP).

TLISC CEO Robert Adams says the group has worked with companies to determine their workforce needs and help them gain access to funding.

"We’re very pleased to see the number of small to medium sized transport and logistics enterprises that have been able to leverage off this Commonwealth initiative to support their workforce development needs," Adams says.

The program aims to help individual enterprises increase productivity by providing employees with opportunities to increase their qualification levels.
