Alistair Logistics Zambia Invests In Zambian Talent With An Innovative Graduate Program

Alistair Logistics Zambia recently launched a unique Candidate Controller/Graduate Trainee Programme to develop the finest talent in Zambia.

This ground-breaking project, which was unveiled in February 2024, demonstrates Alistair Logistics Zambia’s dedication to fostering local talent and promoting industry progress. The goal of the three-month training program is to give participants the abilities and information needed to drive career growth within the organization and to enhance personal skill sets.

The team focuses on addressing the urgent problem of border congestion, which has long been a roadblock to effective trade and transit. Graduates’ first duties at the busy Kasumbalesa Border Post include monitoring vehicle movements and interacting with organizational stakeholders to shorten stay times and expedite procedures. This practical approach has had a revolutionary effect. The Candidate Controller/Graduate Trainee Programme has greatly reduced the border dwell time of the Alistair Fleet since its inception, especially at the Kasumbalesa crossing, which is an essential route for local trade.

The advantages of this project, however, extend much beyond rapid improvements in functionality. The first three Candidate Controllers/Graduate Trainees were given more important responsibilities inside the company by April 2024, when they were formally promoted and reallocated within our Zambian office. Simultaneously, a new wave of young talent has enrolled in the programme, guaranteeing an ongoing inflow of bright minds prepared to mold the future of this industry.

“This programme is a win-win for Alistair Logistics Zambia and the broader Zambian community,” said Warren van Heerden, Head of Road Freight. “Not only are we addressing critical operational challenges, but we’re also providing an invaluable platform for recent university graduates to launch their careers in the dynamic world of transport and logistics.”

An initiative like the Candidate Controller/Graduate Trainee Programme is essential for maintaining company continuity and stability in a fast changing global landscape. Alistair Logistics Zambia’s commitment to developing local talent allows our business to be a training ground for knowledgeable and qualified individuals that can lead Zambia’s logistics industry to new heights.
