An intensive training course on rail freight and logistics was delivered in English to employees from the energy and petrochemical industry in Thailand in 2017. It was organized with the purpose of helping their staff gain knowledge and understanding of principles for effectively managing rail freight and logistics systems. This training course discussed the potential for economic growth and readiness of Thailand to become the logistics rail-based hub for ASEAN. Participants had less experience in rail freight and logistics; hence they wished to improve their knowledge of the subject area for potential management of rail freight and logistics projects across Thailand and its neighbouring countries. After the five-day training course, feedback from participants has been collected; the analysis showed positive views. The participants found the course helpful as it met their expectations. They also provided constructive criticism and useful recommendations for the future delivery of this course.
