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. Use the links below to read some of our recent articles and see how much you could potentially earn if you choose to start your career in logistics:

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.

Furthermore, they could then work towards gaining their ADR licence, which would allow them to transport specialist types of goods that only a small number of drivers can carry.

There are many other examples and pathways in the logistics that show progression is available to those who want it.

What jobs are available?
