Case Study Introduction

There are limited examples demonstrating the monetary benefits of training for Australian and South Australian transport and logistics companies.

Nonetheless, SAFC has undertaken a literature review and engaged in discussions with selected South Australian transport and logistics companies so as to ascertain the existence of any evidence of the Benefits of Training.

From the information gathered it is evident that larger organisations have a greater understanding of the benefits of training and consider it of vital importance to the efficient running of their businesses. However due to competing pressures and time constraints, monetary cost and benefit information is not analysed to any significant extent by these companies.

The following examples outline the training experiences of individual companies and are used to support the case that there are indeed significant benefits available to South Australian transport and logistics companies that actively engage in upskilling their staff.
