Headline : New Zealand : Regional trucking milestone with training programme launch
Summary : Ara launched the new level 3 Transport & Logistics programme in collaboration with industry in Timaru last night, surrounded by historical evidence of trucking in the region.

Ara Chief Executive Tony Gray and South Canterbury Transport and Logistics working group Chair Ali McGrath spoke at the event, which was held at the South Canterbury Traction Engine & Transport Museum.

We are delighted to launch this programme so we can help South Canterbury industry to fill the shortage for commercial truck drivers and keep goods and livestock moving. The new Transport and Logistics programme at Ara will focus on industry-based knowledge and practice to bridge that gap between getting a licence and having the experience to be employed, so it is very much oriented to getting graduates behind the wheel and on the road, Ara Chief Executive Tony Gray said.
