The NGCL is one of the seven Centres of Excellence that have been established in Africa since 2008 with funding from the German Federal Foreign Office's Aktion Africa programme.
One of the ways in which the NGCL manages to maintain its level of expertise is through the exchange of staff and students between Flensburg University in Germany and the Polytechnic and this is how it promotes its growth.
Annual NGCL Logistics and Transport Workshops take place every year which are an effective tool in the Centre's training programme to promote logistics.
Neville Mbai, Director of the NGCL said at the last workshop: "It was fantastic to see the speakers and the delegates interact at such a high level with regard to logistics.
Last year's workshop was organised by NGCL in conjunction with the Walvis Bay Corridor Group under the theme "Developing a Namibian Logistics Hub: Gateway to global supply chains and backbone to regional development" which focused on Namibia's vision and goal of becoming a Logistics Hub serving both itself and the SADC region.
