PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

This Qualification serves to equip the qualifying learner with the fundamental skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to support the provision of world class services by enhancing the learner's ability to interact positively with clients and customers and to solve problems they come across in the workplace in the international logistics and supply chain management field and it will add value to the qualifying learner in terms of enrichment of the person, their status and the recognition offered them. It also provides an opportunity for learners to learn and to apply skills in relation to the workplace.

The Qualification will provide learners with a solid understanding of the relevant legislation and regulations governing the environment in which they operate and also provide them with the ability to appropriately select and apply the relevant processes and procedures governing the operations with which they are involved.

Learners who successfully complete this Qualification will be able to:
  • Communicate verbally and in writing using a variety of formats and use the basics of mathematics.
  • Supervise a freight forwarding and customs compliance function.
  • Solve operational problems within the freight forwarding and customs compliance environment.
  • Carry out freight forwarding operations in customs compliance with client requirements and legislation.

    This Qualification aims to assist people entering a career in the freight forwarding and customs compliance sector and those already working in it maintain and improve their competencies in meeting and anticipating the needs of their clients and customers. It will create the opportunity:
  • For a career path.
  • To provide process and service standards.
  • To improve productivity.
  • To improve service delivery.

    Learners will be provided with the conceptual framework to perform routine and non-routine functions and to supervise the performance of other functions, displaying the ability to combine and integrate competencies in their application in the freight forwarding and customs compliance environment.

    Rationale:

    The freight forwarding and customs compliance industry serves the need of society and the economy by providing for the distribution and carriage of goods, cargo and freight both on a national and an international level. It serves every industry in South Africa and therefore contributes to the growth of the South African economy as a whole. A healthy and growing economy is in turn vital in terms of the development and upliftment of the country, its infrastructure and its entire people.

    It has been estimated that logistics as a whole constitute at least 14% of the costs of the goods in South Africa, which is at least 50% above the global norm. A large proportion of this overspend is attributed to inefficiencies caused by lack of competence. In order to become world competitive, South Africa needs to deliver its goods on time, at the right place and at an acceptable cost. In order to do this requires the establishment and maintenance of world class supply chains. Competent (qualified) international logistics and supply chain management practitioners and support staff are required for this purpose.

    This Qualification will meet the needs of learners in the freight forwarding and customs compliance field (or those who wish to enter this field) who require the technical expertise and essential knowledge needed to earn a formal Qualification.

    This is the third Qualification in a series for learners who want to follow a career in the field of freight forwarding and customs compliance. This Qualification focuses on developing skills and knowledge necessary to perform in a competent manner in this industry.

    The FETC: Freight Forwarding and Customs compliance: replaces the following Qualifications:
  • ID 22443: National Certificate: Freight Forwarding, NQF Level 4, 136 credits.
  • ID 22441: National Certificate: Customs Clearing, NQF Level 4, 145 credits.

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This Qualification is part of a series of Qualifications ranging from Level 2 to 5 in the field of international logistics and supply chain management and it was compared to other, similar Qualifications, certificates, skills programmes and courses in the international arena as having best practice.

    No African country was found to offer any applicable Qualifications and training programmes.

    Within the International Trade Arena, the leaders in training and development are the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) and the forum for International Trade Training (FITT). This Qualification was compared with the Qualifications and short courses offered by these two major providers. It was found that the four Qualifications in International Trade, Freight Forwarding and Customs Clearing registered on the NQF cover what is offered in the FIATA and FITT programmes. In their programmes everything is covered in either the Level 3 or in this Level 4 Qualification.

    By completing this Level 4 Qualification the learner will have met the international standards demanded at this level. This Level 4 Qualification also includes Fundamental learning. However the Core competencies of the FIATA and FITT courses are spread over the two Qualifications at Levels 3 and 4. This notwithstanding, the theoretical and practical competencies of this Qualification corresponds with those of FIATA and FITT.

    The above Qualification is offered throughout the international logistics and supply chain management world and it was found that it compares exceptionally well with both the Level 3 and Level 4 Qualifications. There is however no Fundamental learning in this international Qualification.

    Canada: Forum for International Trade Training (FITT):

    > The principles of marketing.
    > Domestic vs. International marketing.
    > Market research.

    > Enhancing the marketing effort.
    > Marketing services.

    There are only a few areas of similarity between the FETC: Freight Forwarding and Customs compliance and the FITT qualification as the latter focuses quite substantially on the marketing and selling process. The FETC: Freight Forwarding and Customs compliance only has certain components that focus on this area.
  • Certificate in International Trade Finance:

    > Understanding and processing documentary credits.
    > Bonds and guarantees.
    > Export credit insurance and financing.
    > Cash flow planning.
    > Countertrade and consignment.

    It is quite obvious from the above Qualification that is only has one single aspect that compares with ours in that we only look at the interpretation of financial statements and not the in-depth manner in which they look into international trade finance. It must be noted however, that it is within the Elective category of the South African qualification that a far more in-depth look is taken into finance.

    Canada: Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA):
  • Certificate in the Risks Forwarders Face:
  • Errors.
  • Omissions.
  • Standard Trading Conditions.
  • Understanding Legal Liability.

    The aspects contained in the above Qualification are covered quite comprehensively in the South African Qualification and therefore compares favourably.
  • Certificate in Cargo Insurance:
    > Transforming Lost or Damaged Cargo into a satisfying Experience.

    For the above Qualifications the contents are covered in the 'Elective' component of this Qualification.

    Ireland: Irish International Freight Forwarding Association (IIFFA):
  • Traineeship in Freight Forwarding:
    > General Knowledge of the Industry.
    > Sea transport.
    > Road Transport.
    > Air Transport.
    > Customs procedures.
    > Warehousing/Logistics.
    > Transport Insurance.
    > Customer Service (City and Guilds).
    > Manual Handling Training (City and Guilds).
    > ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence.

    The learning taking place in the above Qualification has similar outcomes to the South African one and therefore they compare favourably with each other. It must be noted that the choice of Electives offers the degree of alignment between the two qualifications.

    Japan: Customs Training Institute:
  • Certificate: Introduction for Officials Level 3:
    > Acquire Sense of Responsibility as a Member of Society.
    > Duties and Responsibilities as Public Employee.
    > Acquire Basic knowledge and Skills for Efficient Customs Work.
  • Certificate: Intermediate Level 3:
    > Acquire Practical knowledge and Skills of Customs Work.
  • Certificate: Technical:
    > Officials acquire knowledge for tasks

    The above courses from Japan only offer an introductory insight to Customs work and therefore do not go into the same detail as the South African qualification. As can be seen they do not cover any of the practical work required at this level and focus almost exclusively on "Customs' customs compliance whereas the South African Qualifications is far more generalised on international logistics and supply chain management.

    United States of America: Treasury of Unit States of America Customs Service:
  • Certificate in Customs clearance on desk:
    > Office policies of a Customs Broker office.
    > Operations procedures for a Customs Brokerage Office.
    > Import References.
    > Customs compliance Review Materials.
    > Customs Clearing Tutoring (course format and links).
    > Customs broker Licence Preparation Course (handouts).
    > FDA Regulations and Procedures.
  • Certificate in Export Operations on desk:
    > Professional International Freight Forwarder Training Course Handouts.
    > Export Documentation - the story behind the documents.
    > Export Trading Company (ETC) Information.
    > Freight Forwarder Overview Information.
  • Certificate in Customs compliance Review:
    > Classification.
    > Valuation.
    > Binding Rulings.
    > Customs Law.
    > Recordkeeping.
    > Regulations.
    > Overview.
    > Customs Procedures.
  • Certificate in Freight Forwarder Overview:
    > Carrier Information.
    > Shipper Documentation.
    > Freight Forwarding Today.
    > Export Regulations.
    > Export Software.
    > References.

    All the above Qualifications are very similar in nature to the South African one and therefore compare well with each other.

    United States of America: Centres for International Trade Development:
  • Certificate in Import/Export:
    > Basic Principles of Exporting and Importing.
    > Documentation.
    > Logistics.
    > Financing.

    The above Qualification focuses mainly on import and export only and does not include other aspects of international logistics and supply chain management which have been included in the South African Qualification.

    United Kingdom: The Institute of Export:
  • Certificate in Core:
    > An introduction to Exporting.
    > An introduction to Importing.
    > Getting Paid in international trade.
    > Advanced Letters of Credit.
    > An Introduction To Export Marketing.
    > Marketing Services in International Trade.
    > The Complete Export Manager.

    The above Qualification focuses mainly on export only and does not include other aspects of international logistics and supply chain management which have been included in the South African Qualification.

    United Kingdom: British International Freight Association (BIFA):
  • Certificate in Dangerous Goods By Air: Revalidation: DGA2.
  • Certificate in Aviation Security Cargo Level 2: Supervisor: A2/3.
  • Certificate in Dangerous Goods By Air: DGA1.
  • Certificate in BTEC Intermediate Award in Multimodal International Freight Procedures: MFT1.
  • Certificate in First Aid - Appointed Person.
  • Certificate for Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor: DGSA.
  • Certificate in Export Documentation, Procedures and Practice: EXP4.
  • Certificate in Purchasing from Overseas: IMP2.
  • Certificate in Working with Letters of Credit: TP3.
  • Certificate in Dangerous Goods by Road: DGR1.
  • Certificate in Dangerous Goods by Sea: DGS1.
  • Certificate in Customs Procedures for Import Cargo: CM2.
  • Certificate in Customs Procedures for Export Cargo: CM1.
  • Certificate in Aviation Security Cargo Level 2 - Supervisor: A2/3.

    If a combination of the above courses were taken they would compare well to the South African Qualification.

    Hungary: Budapest Muszaki És Gazdásagtudományi Egyetem:
  • Diploma in Freight Forwarding Managers:
    > National and International Legislation.
    > Agreements, Rules and Practices on Freight Forwarding.
    > Transportation by Rail, Road, Air or Inland Navigation and Maritime Transport.
    > Relevant Procedures.
    > Insurance.

    This particular Diploma has all the elements contained in the South African Qualification and therefore compares very well with it. Our Qualification however contains more detail and competencies.

    None of the SADC countries seemed to have any Qualifications or course for us to make comparisons with. Some may however offer the FIATA Diploma.

    Conclusion:

    This Level 4 Qualification appears to be midway between the (FIATA) and (FITT) training courses and looks similar to the other international course shown here as a comparison.

    Also as South Africa emerges from its previous limited trading situation to one of being a global player also means that there is a far greater demand for people at this level getting involved in and employed in the International Trade sector.

    While there may be different ways of expressing the content of the learning taking place all over the world, there is sufficient consensus that it all refers to the same basic competencies required to work within the 'international logistics and supply chain management' environment.
