Event tackles logistics issues
11 July 2017
Hundreds of visitors arrived in Telford on 22nd June for Talent in Logistics, which is described as the only event dedicated to training, learning and development in the transport, warehousing and logistics industries.
Geared specifically towards the challenges of the logistics and transport industry, the Talent in Logistics Conference provided visitors with a development opportunity, suitable for helping to keep professionals engaged and on their logistics career path.
In addition, conference delegates were encouraged to think about the future of logistics careers with a talk from CASCAID as well as a session on new standards relating to apprenticeships, delivered by Pearson. Jobcentre Plus also explained the work taking place within the logistics industry to help tackle the skills shortage by recruiting and retaining employees with disability.
The agenda covered a variety of topics around safety within the sector, and highlighted the important role that training plays in this.
During the event, many delegates dropped by the Information Zone, to network and consult with leading brands from within the industry about best practice and the common issues faced by training and L&D professionals.
Hundreds of people also gathered for the Talent in Logistics Awards dinner at the Telford International Centre to celebrate excellence throughout the transport and logistics industry.
15 awards were presented to individuals, teams and organisations which had demonstrated their commitment to quality and going the extra mile.
The next Talent in Logistics Conference and Awards will take place at the Telford International Centre on 21st June 2018.
