Shortages of truck drivers, warehouse personnel and other transport and logistics workers make this sector a hot focus for recruitment. Vacancies are increasing as a result of the surge in home deliveries and an ageing workforce in which a high proportion of qualified drivers are coming up for retirement. The shortages will increase the job openings and training opportunities for people under-represented in the transport and logistics workforce including women.
