Additional Information

The Aftral group, a French transport and logistics training organisation, launched a recruitment campaign for 200 trainers at the beginning of March.

The COVID-19 crisis has had beneficial effects on the e-commerce and transport sector, so these new hires will strengthen the company's training offer in road driving for goods and passengers, as well as in logistics.

Aftral is the leading national player in the market for initial and continuing training in transport and logistics, and it is present throughout the country through six major regional operational departments. The group manages 120 training centres and 101 schools specialising in transport and logistics. Aftral employs 2,400 employees, including 1,400 trainers, and trains around 30,000 people each year.
