“Some of the biggest and most successful companies operating in the logistics industry have realised that investing in skills training and staff development leads directly to increased business efficiency, while positioning them as employers of choice within their local community. A more highly skilled workforce also has a positive effect on reducing carbon emissions across a business,” said Dr Mick Jackson, chief executive officer of Skills for Logistics.

“We are an employer-led organisation, working to ensure that government policy on skills and training reflects the needs of logistics employers across the UK and we look forward to welcoming employers in the sector to our Milton Keynes offices on March 1st.”
