In this industry overview, we discuss each of the 9 factors that science has shown to determine success through people and explore these in the context of the unique challenges currently being faced by employers in the transportation and logistics sector.

Success Through People - the factors

The transport and logistics industry continues to play an integral role in supplying the country with essential goods and services during a worldwide pandemic. As many industries were forced to close indefinitely, logistics companies have conversely been working harder than ever before to meet the increased demands placed upon them.

Transportation and logistics companies also continue to experience problems in recruiting and retaining talent. This is in large part because they are not seen as employers of choice. Employer brand, particularly within SMEs needs to be proactively managed if the sector is to attract the right employees for the future. In 2020, the DfT reported that the sector employed over 2 million people in the UK, roughly 8% of the total workforce. Despite this, new entrants and those looking for a change of career often do not consider a career in transportation and logistics, simply because they are not aware of its size or importance. There is also a general lack of awareness regarding the broad range of careers available in the sector. Supervisory roles often prove particularly problematic to fill and general managerial skills are at a premium.

In the following industry overview, we discuss these challenges and each of the 9 factors that science has shown to determine success through people. Join us as we explore these in the context of the unique challenges currently being faced by employers in the transportation and logistics sector.
