FTA encouraging students to Think Logistics..
The Freight Transport Association has previously highlighted the issue of skills shortage in logistics, particularly for professional drivers which is suffering a shortfall of 60,000. FTA is working on a range of ways of attracting more young people into the industry, and its sponsorship of Think Logistics will deliver projects aimed at students 16-19 years of age.
James Hookham – FTA Deputy Chief Executive said: “Think Logistics is an inspired project led by its founder Steve Granite aimed at making this industry understandable to the next generation of drivers, managers and technicians. FTA is pleased to be supporting and helping develop the project and delivering programmes at this scale across the country to the key audience of 16-18 year olds, as part of our skills development campaign.”
