The Diversity Journey
Nominations for the 2019 everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards are now open! Returning for its 12th year this established industry event is continuing its mission to uncover female role models, identify male agents of change and transform the industry perception.
With Brexit approaching the industry is set to face a period of uncertainty and change. With this in mind, it is more crucial than ever to have a multi-skilled workforce to manage this change and to build a team of balance and productivity.
But Brexit is not the only challenge on the horizon, As the sector keeps pace with new technology, so many roles increasingly require a multi-skilled workforce covering project management, sales, customer services and planning in addition to the more traditional driving and warehouse positions.
