Logistics report set to be unveiled

Date: December 6th, 12:00 - 14:00

SEMLEP is this month pledging a commitment to supporting our essential logistics sector and the 91,700 plus people working in logistics within the South East Midlands.

At a launch event at Northampton-based Norbert Dentressangle Logistics UK we will unveil our five year strategy in partnership with Skills for Logistics, which calls for an urgent need to recruit new as well as younger people into the sector, retain and train up existing staff and the need to change and transform the image of logistics so that it is viewed as a viable career of choice.

As part of our strategy we have also calculated that there will be an additional 285,000 logistics positions to fill across the South East Midlands between 2014 and 2020, with considerable demand expected for both management and elementary positions.

The discrepancy between the sector’s workforce needs and numbers of people working in and entering the sector to work is identified as a pressing challenge, and this SEMLEP Logistics Report, written by Skills for Logistics calls for urgent change if the sector and UK economy as a whole is to thrive.
