A program developed and executed by Danish Freight Forwarders Association in collaboration with International Business College Kolding in Denmark.

Our history is, that for more than 30 years, Danish Freight Forwarders and International Business College Kolding, Aarhus Business College and Roskilde Handelsskole have held a two-year trainee program to become a certified freight forwarder.

Since we started, more than 10.000 students have succesfully graduated, and has been an essential cornerstone in the Danish freight forwarding industry.

Currently danish educated freight forwarders are using their skills globally around the world.
