Think Logistics partners with FTA to launch short films to attract young workers

New videos launched by FTA and Think Logistics

Think Logistics and FTA have launched a series of short films to promote a career in logistics to young people.

The videos are free to logistics companies and showcase the benefits of working within the sector, showing various positive case studies.

Covered topics included are student-focused interviews and ‘day in the life’ short films.

Its films have been designed to promote on companies’ social media channels and websites.

Sally Gilson, head of skills campaigns at FTA, said: “With 64% of transport and storage businesses now facing severe skills shortages, it is imperative we attract new individuals into the workforce.

“A career in logistics can offer the variety, flexibility and opportunities for promotion that many young workers find attractive.

“That is why we need to ensure young people are aware of the benefits the sector can afford; these short films will help to communicate this in an accessible and easily sharable format. I hope all logistics businesses will utilise this free-of-charge tool.”

The FTA supports UK logistics, offering advice, training, products and specific services to its members.

Steve Granite, the founder of Think Logistics, said: “This is an opportunity for companies of all sizes to use these films free of charge to raise awareness of the sector and directly benefit from increasing the size of their talent pool for opportunities in their businesses.

“Having been involved in Think Logistics from the start, I have seen countless examples of the benefits young people can bring to an organisation; we hope these videos will enable companies to easily demonstrate what opportunities are available and how the reality of working in logistics is very different from what people may think.”
