Mr. Arun Vasu, Chairman of TT Group said, TT Skill is an educational initiative of TT Group, it is in a way our contribution towards the development logistics community, we wanted to focus on the pain points where the skills are lacking right now. "One of the pain points for the Indian logistics industry is the poor quality of knowledge. We often learn more when we are on the job than in the classroom. There is a curriculum and there are professors teaching it but the uniqueness of this program is that the participants will have the opportunity to learn from working with a freight forwarder or trucking company or an airline before they are certified."
