Mumbai: 21CC Education, one of the leading providers of e-learning and training solutions in the logistics industry, today announced its partnership with Portall Infosystems, to provide attractive and interesting online course materials for the maritime and logistics community on Portall’s technology platforms. The joint effort will help address the challenge of skill-gap in the industry by providing quality and easy-accessible training solutions.
As per a recent study by the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the market size of the Indian logistics sector is seen climbing to $215 billion by 2020, logging 10.5 per cent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over 2017. Furthermore, according to Economic Survey 2017-18, the Indian logistics sector provides a livelihood to over 22 million people, which in the next couple of years is expected to surge to 40 million.
Announcing the collaboration, Sanjay Tiwari, Founder, 21CC Education said, “While the logistics sector is on an accelerated growth track, it faces issues of unorganised logistics and packaging operations. It also struggles with inadequate administrative skills, weak management qualities at the mid-tier and decision-making levels. This is largely due to lack of skills and education at the grass root level. Trained and well-developed human resources with the right skills will make a significant difference to the overall growth of the industry. This partnership will enhance our capability to address and help close these skills-gap and help re-engineer the Indian logistics sector.”
21CC makes complex content accessible and fun by using illustrations, practical examples, humour and also gamification on mobile devices to help logistics sector employees upgrade their skill-set to realise their full potential. An improved workforce benefits companies themselves with reduction in errors, reduced losses and lower costs with better customer satisfaction and retention. With recent commencement of its operations in the hospitality sector, 21CC plans further growth in other industry verticals going forward.
Speaking about the collaboration, Manish Jaiswal, President, Portall Infosystems said, “Portall is very focussed on continuous learning as a means to drive growth and progress, for companies as well as individuals. We look to complement our technology disruptions by training the next-gen shipping and logistics workforce.
This collaboration with 21CC will empower individuals seeking to build careers in logistics to have access to a variety of e-learning solutions so as to accelerate their career growth and stay relevant in a changing industry. We aim to change the maritime ecosystem in India through engagement with the best minds of the community.”
