Prologis CWI in Action

Our Mission: Equip 25,000 individuals with the skills necessary for jobs in transportation, distribution and logistics by the end of 2025

In partnership with JFF, a national nonprofit that drives transformation in the American workforce and education systems, Prologis has designed a digital learning and development program to build competencies for today’s logistics workforce. The online program addresses basic workforce skills, lean principles and logistics-specific training in areas such as workplace safety and forklift operation. The courses incorporate the latest technologies, including virtual reality tools, and can be accessed at the student’s convenience using a computer or mobile device (with only a browser required).

Prologis’ commitment to rapidly prepare 25,000 displaced workers for in-demand roles in a large and growing industry is the type of proactive leadership we want to see in this moment of crisis. Its benefits will be profound for workers, employers and the broader economy.

Maria Flynn, president and CEO, JFF
