Mekong Institute, with the support of the Republic of Korea through the Mekong-Republic of Korea Cooperation Fund (MKCF), is organizing the 2nd and 3rd modular trainings on Green Freight and Logistics Management in Mekong Countries at the MI Residential Training Center in Khon Kaen, Thailand. The training programs are scheduled on February 18-22, 2019 (Second Modular Training) and April 1-5, 2019 (Third Modular Training).
Part of a three-year project on “Green Freight and Logistics Development in Mekong Countries,” the modular training programs aim to present tools to help logistics service providers (LSPs) to become more competitive and reduce cost of logistics and transport; discuss the potential and benefits, and best practices in green freight and logistics; and build capacities of LSPs in complying with ‘green mark’ certification.
Anchored on participatory processes and action-based learning, the training will be conducted through a combination of methods – lectures, plenary discussions, case studies, group activities, role play, and simulation. By doing so, the training aims to equip the participants with knowledge and skills on sustainable practices in the transport and logistics industries in the Greater Mekong Subregion.
