The FTA has bought specialist training provider T Team, which trades as TrainingTeam.

The training provider teaches courses across the UK and online specialising in the movement of dangerous goods by road, rail and sea as well as air cargo security.

FTA CEO David Wells said that the move allowed the association to give its members confidence when moving dangerous goods.

He added: "We are delighted to add TrainingTeam’s excellent range of courses to our existing portfolio, and to strengthen FTA’s offering in the air cargo security and dangerous goods training market.

"TrainingTeam will continue to offer its courses to all its existing customers, and FTA will be growing the online training offer which has seen the company reach a global marketplace.”

The business was founded in 1988 by Charles Manetta, who said he was "delighted to be handing on the organisation to the FTA".

TrainingTeam's employees will remain at the business's Crawley HQ.
