Heavy Transport Online Training Course

Freightbook Ltd has invested in both professional training from an industry expert and a bespoke eLearning platform to provide a comprehensive online course on Heavy Transport.

Why heavy transport? Independent forwarders know that there is a ceiling when it comes to earning revenue from sea, road, and airfreight shipments. Although the thought of branching into heavy lift and project cargo is appealing due to the often-healthy margins, the market is hugely different, and the risks are far higher.

The clear and highly effective 6 module online course consists of 66 x 10-minute sessions which cover industry terminology, dimensions, weights and forces, heavy transport, heavy lifting, jacking, skidding and loadouts.

When completed, the user will understand the practical, operational, and engineering aspects of heavy transport and lifting projects. For a full schedule of modules and sessions, please click here.

Besides the benefit of not having to travel to workshops and seminars, you can stop and start the training at your convenience with no deadlines. Upon completion, an e-Certificate is sent via email which can be shared immediately so that you can verify your training to clients and officials quickly and easily.

New for 2024!

We are proud to launch an exclusive collection of 5 new training videos on Stability. The expertise obtained from the videos can be applied to your daily work immediately and illustrate that stability in the various domains: transporters, cranes, and barges, essentially boils down to the same underlying principles of nature.

To the best of our knowledge, there has been no precedent for explaining the transport, lifting, and maritime stability concepts as an integrated whole – so again we are pioneers!

The training is delivered by industry expert, Marco J. van Daal who has over 20 years’ experience and is author of the heavy transport textbook The Art of Heavy Transport in addition to being a contributing member of the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Crane.

Marco J. van Daal says “It gives me tremendous joy when experienced project and heavy lift forwarders approach me after training and say, “I have been doing this for 30 years and now I know why”.”
