Port of Corpus Christi wins praise for project cargo training support

The Port of Corpus Christi, on the western Gulf of Mexico, has won praise from the largest dedicated project cargo organisation in the world for its support of specialist training for heavy-lift freight forwarders.

The Project Professionals Group’s 3PL network is represented in over 100 countries and will run a training program as part of the education component for attendees at the 21st Annual JoC Breakbulk Americas Transportation Conference & Exhibition at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston from October 12-15.

PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said the Port of Corpus Christi had agreed to be a sponsor of the Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management that will be offered over two days from October 14-15 as part of Breakbulk Americas.

“The Port of Corpus Christi is to be congratulated for supporting much-needed industry training that is designed to help meet the skills shortfall for experienced project cargo managers around the world,” Mr Stephens said.

“Improving training and education in the project cargo sector is in everyone’s best interest from clients to international freight forwarders and their transportation partners.”

Mr Stephens said the facilities at the Port of Corpus Christi provided an excellent gateway to and from the United States for over dimensional cargos.

The Houston training is offered through a joint venture initiative between the Journal of Commerce Breakbulk Conferences (a division of UBM Global Trade) and the Project Professionals Group.
