Nordic Logistics and Warehousing
The Big Chill
Quick Start bundles up to deliver training for Nordic Logistics' cold storage operation
Project Summary: With access to two major highways and the fastest growing port in the United States, Savannah is quickly becoming one of the most important cargo hubs in the country. Cold storage is an integral
part of the Savannah distribution landscape, with fresh produce and agricultural products making up a sizable chunk of the business.
Nordic Logistics, one of the country's leaders in this field, has seen this growth first hand. The company has doubled its Pooler, Ga., location from 200,000 square feet to 400,000 square feet, and has recently announced plans to add an additional 400,000 square feet in the next five years.
And Georgia Quick Start’s customized workforce training
has been one of the big factors
in that success.
Nordic’s training started with training in continuous improvement and productivity enhancement, including topics ranging from leadership and performance management to conflict resolution. From there, Quick Start began training employees on job-specific skills. From dock and warehouse operations to inventory control, and from safety and hazard communications to
hands-on training with the specific software they would be using, Quick Start prepared Nordic’s employees with the necessary skillsets to work in the company’s unique, sub-zero environment.
