By: 2 Start Ltd
One opportunity that many people look to take at the turn of the year is to start a new career, and this article is here for those of you looking to start a career in the logistics industry.
Why should you consider a career in logistics?
There are a host of reasons why you should look at starting a career in the logistics industry, all of which shows the importance and benefits of having a job in logistics.
Increase in demand
The first reason you should look at starting a career in the logistics industry is the high demand for workers in all fields, from HGV drivers to forklift operators.
The UK HGV driver shortage has further exasperated the need for workers in logistics, with supply chains and deliveries coming under massive pressure, especially in recent months as the shortages have become more apparent.
The HGV driver shortage has not only meant that firms are looking for more drivers but, it also means other jobs are in demand, such as warehouse forklift operators and transport managers.
Increase in Pay
Closely linked to the driver shortage, there has been an increase in pay in the logistics industry.
The increase in pay across the industry has been caused by many factors but is mainly down to the before-mentioned HGV driver shortage and the increased demand for supply-chain workers.
Opportunities to progress
There is a myth around the logistics industry that there is little room for progression and that the work is boring.
However, this could not be further from the truth, with many firms offering self-progression and encouraging upskilling.
Additionally, those who put in the extra work towards gaining higher licence categories and qualifications tend to reap the rewards.
A great example would be someone who holds a Category C licence, who has the pathway to progress their career and gain their C+E licence, which can lead to more work and increased pay.
