Estonia-Latvia-Russia Cross-Border Cooperation Improves Quality of Logistics Training

An EU-funded cross-border cooperation project aimed at supporting the training of logisticians and freight-forwarders in border area vocational schools in Estonia, Latvia and North-West Russia has come to an end, having brought together a partnership of seven different organizations in the three countries.

The project also issued recommendations for special logistics curriculum, including ICT solutions that could improve productivity and cost savings, minimizing the impact of human error in calculations and logistic process chains.

In addition to seven manuals for logistics training, the project published 11 articles in Estonian, Russian and English, and broadcast information about the project in news programmes.

The Estonia-Latvia-Russia CBC Programme has supported 49 cross-border cooperation projects in the programming period 2007-2013. Its objective is to promote joint development activities for the improvement of the region’s competitiveness by using its potential at the crossroads between the EU and Russia. Specifically, it aims to make the wider border area an attractive place for both its inhabitants and businesses through activities aimed at improving living standards and investment climate.
