Level 3 International Freight Forwarding Specialist Apprenticeship

Explore the World of International Trade

Logistics is everywhere. Nearly everything that you touch, eat, open and use has been moved from one place to another. Even if you don’t know what the logistics industry is, you have seen it in action.


Logistics is the process of managing how goods are moved, stored, and transported to their destination. Freight forwarders play an essential role in making this happen.


Freight forwarders oversee the worldwide movement of cargo, packing, documentation, and customs clearance, on behalf of importers and exporters.

Over the course of 15 months, this apprenticeship explores all the key aspects of international trade and offers learners the opportunity to select from one of 3 unique pathways: Air Freight, Road Freight, or Ocean Freight.

Our Learners Say

Sam Lawford.jpg
"I have gained confidence in myself particularly when it comes to understanding the processes and technical terms I feel this is essential in my job role. When we have workshops it's great to be able to talk with other people who are on the same course as me. I like the fact that my tutor is always there when I need help, it gives me peace of mind at all times."
