When people talk about the transport and logistics market, they usually think trucks, ships, planes and trains or even roads, airports and ports. What won’t be at the front of their minds are the people required to operate these assets, or the managers who plan the movement of goods across global supply chains.
This is not merely an inconvenient fact. Right across the world, the industry is being undermined by a skills shortage which is impacting efficiencies, not just for the transport and logistics sector but also for the manufacturers and retailers who use their services.
