Redington has taken a significant stride in advancing the logistics industry’s skills landscape with the inauguration of the Centre of Logistics Training Excellence (COLTE) in Chennai. Launched on January 10, 2024, as part of Redington’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, COLTE emerges as a collaborative venture with the Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC).
COLTE is poised to expand its footprint across India, serving as a learning and training academy for logistics and supply chain practices. Equipped with cutting-edge displays, AR VR simulators, and training facilities, it focuses on skilling unemployed youth and upskilling/reskilling the existing workforce in the logistics and supply chain sector.
COLTE’s state-of-the-art facilities, including Simulation Labs with Truck Driving, Warehouse, and Forklift Simulators, offer real-time experiential learning. This aligns with the New Logistics Policy and Gati Shakti initiatives, aiming to improve efficiency and reduce logistics costs.
COLTE stands poised to shape the future of supply chain management through education, innovation, and practical skills development.
