Why is the face of logistics white, middle-aged and male?

Skills for Logistics, the Sector Skills Council has been awarded funding of up to £100,000 from the Department for Transport to investigate workforce diversity and the current state of training provision for the logistics industry.

The research hopes to identify the current level training across both the private and public sectors. They hope to profile the different categories of logistics drivers and workforce diversity in terms of ethnicity, gender and age.

They will assess barriers that stand in the way of recruitment and retention and identify ways to make industry more appealing to potential workforce.
