Telematic and fleet management provider, Microlise has announced it will renew its association with Think Logistics, in a bid to “attract school leavers, apprentices and graduates into the logistics, transport and supply chain profession”.
According to the business, while this year’s global pandemic has “wreaked havoc across many sectors”, the logistics industry rose to the challenges presented by Covid-19 and “proved how essential the sector is to trade and to the economy”.
It comes as the RHA estimated that the logistics sector currently employs more than 2.5 million people. As part of its sponsorship the company partners with industry bodies and over 40 logistics companies to help source apprenticeships and job opportunities for young workers.
Steve Granite, CEO of Abbey Logistics and the creator of Think Logistics, said: “Microlise has been a fantastic supporter of Think Logistics and we are delighted that they are going to continue to lend their support.
“In addition to sponsorship, Microlise has supported us in several ways including allocating annual space at their exhibition, making presentations at schools and colleges as well as offering internship places at their headquarters in Nottingham.”
He added: “Think Logistics is making a real-world difference with countless examples of young people who have been introduced to logistics through the programme and gone on to start careers in the sector.”
“We can only achieve this through the support, commitment and dedication of our partners, driving the initiative forward and working together to solve a shared challenge.”
