Practical logistics training
Practical training can be broadly classified into two categories

The training which is carried out in the classroom, without going too deeply into the theoretical side is called pragmatic training. According to this training method, the candidates are trained on how to manage several elements of the logistics operation. Pragmatic trainings are fast and flexible and are usually tailored and delivered by logistic experts.
When the training is carried out in the real world environment it is called hands-on training. When a candidate needs to be trained with specific types of equipment like forklift hands-on training is more useful.
