What differentiates Wallis from many of our competitors is that our training and consultancy is based on actual practical experience within the industry and we make it bespoke to you. We can offer advice in many aspects of freight, export and import.


Our trainers and consultants are full-time professionals who customise courses to suit your exact requirements, on-site or off-site, in the UK or overseas. Our successful track record includes work for commercial companies, Chambers of Commerce, international banks, NGOs and UN bodies.

Our training can be remote, based at our head office in Colchester, Essex, or ideally, at your premises in the UK We like to build interaction into our training programme so that you can make relevance of the knowledge. Alongside practical examples and group discussion, delegates come away from our courses feeling like they can put their new skills into action.

We have trained many different clients. Our successful track record includes work for multi-national companies, commercial companies, Chambers of Commerce, international banks, NGOs and UN bodies. We often train groups from manufacturing export departments, or whole shipping teams, those in a new logistics role and even some of our own freight forwarding clients.
