CAREER PROSPECTS

South Africa’s post isolation period and its reintroduction into the international trading industry, continues to create and provide opportunities in the shipping and tourism sectors.

Trade does not occur without transport (air, road and sea) and global economies now understand the demands of distribution and the importance of lowering the end cost of products.
