Thaourati Youssouf, who is one of the ten people trained, is the first woman within Moroni Terminal to obtain this position.

Thanks to the training I received through the CFPP, I am able to manoeuvre and control this handling vehicle on a daily basis to accomplish my work efficiently while also understanding precisely how it operates.”, said Thaourati Youssouf.
