“Great overview of carriage of goods, I completed a similar course a couple of years ago but this was great to refresh my memory as well as learning some new skills.  The tutors knowledge was great, he made the course interesting and explained everything really well.  I’d definitely recommend the course to anyone who has anything to do with cartage, this would add value to Freight Forwarders, Importers, Exporters and Carriers”

'RJ's Licorice Ltd has been using the expertise of IVS for approximately two years...

... We have found their level of experience and professionalism to be excellent and they have always delivered our requirements in a timely and efficient manner.  Their training programmes have been thorough and staff found the training to be informative and practical.  As a result of our partnership with IVS we have recently had our MPI audit period extended to 18 months as a reflection of being a 'well maintained' facility.

I have no hesitation in recommending IVS as a quality supplier and look forward to our continuing partnership.'  view complete testimonial

'Blundstone Footwear has utilised the services and skills of IVS since 2006.  During this time I have been more than satisfied with the level of service provided.  This is endorsed by my staff, who are now totally committed with a full understanding of the importance of the biosecurity role we all play in protecting New Zealand’s borders.  Our membership to the IVS Biosecurity Support Programme ensures our Transitional Facility, and staff at Blundstone, are kept up to date with the ongoing changes which occur in this industry.  I have found IVS staff and their trainers are always willing to assist, very friendly, providing a professional service and good advice where needed.  I recommend IVS to any Importer (or Exporter) who needs to maintain their Transitional Facility or who need staff trained. IVS is the company that will see you right.'
