All-round experience for Tilbury trainees

[ February 26, 2018   //   ]

The Port of Tilbury’s Logistics Training Academy and Tilbury on the Thames Trust have taken delivery of a new ‘fully immersive’ training simulator as part of the ‘Attention to Logistics’ training programme.

The ‘Attention to Logistics’ training programme and bursary scheme, launched last year by the Trust, has been created to specifically focus on the forces veteran community, helping ex-service men and women and their families back into work through the logistics sector.

The Vortex ship to shore and straddle carrier simulator, purchased by the Trust from global leader in simulation-based solutions, CM Labs Simulations of Montreal, was delivered in a container to London Container Terminal in Tilbury. It provides full simulation of all the major crane and straddle operational components such as motion, cable and lifting systems, and lift apparatus.
