Growing Talent in the Transport and Logistics Sectors

Haulage and Logistics

16th March 2023

Newbury College hosted the Growing Talent in Transport and Logistics Sector event. A core group of employers and providers met to discuss the challenges facing the sector. Richard Perriman from Scan Global Logistics chaired the group and shared his own background in the industry. He was followed by a fascinating talk by Chris Markey from where?

There were many interesting insights shared and it became apparent that some of the key roles required are warehouse operators, custom clearing agents and facilitators to allow products to be moved successfully around the country and beyond.

Key takeaways were digital knowledge and the lack of basic excel skills employees have in addition to an essential need for management/leadership training and development programmes. It was felt by all on the day that the sector needed more of a spotlight on it and that this could come through by earlier engagement and knowledge for students in education and careers advice.
