Staff at the centre understand that during any festive period, there will be a high demand of cargo and “there will be a lot of movement”, he added.
“This is the period that we have to help each other out.”
To cope with the demand, SATS Coolport has been training more new staff.
“For new joinees, basically they will attend our perishable and (pharmaceutical) training at our main training centre,” said Mr Nabeel.
“So once they are done with the training for about eight weeks, then they will come over to join us at the Coolport.
“We wouldn’t be letting them (be) alone, driving a forklift or operating anything. So we will actually attach them with senior staff, that’s where they will go for on-the-job training.”
They also need to get used to the temperatures at the centre, which can go below freezing.
