We’re proud to support the RHA and sponsor National Lorry Week to celebrate the logistics sector, and raise awareness of the importance of the industry. National Lorry Week is also a fantastic way to show our thanks to all involved at Goodyear in keeping the haulage industry moving, from those in supply chain, our commercial sales team and all supporting head office personnel – and most importantly all who are part of our TruckForce Network. From their early mornings, to late finishes and call outs throughout the night, you really do go above and beyond in keeping fleets moving.
National Lorry Week is important to highlight the logistics industry and each person and team that contribute towards keeping businesses driving on our roads, celebrating the real difference that they make to everyday life. It’s also key to encourage those thinking about a career in logistics to have a greater understanding of the industry and the brilliant opportunities on offer.
The logistics industry holds a fantastic community and the opportunity to work in a great team, from drivers to warehouse managers. With a current driver shortage in the trucking industry, the logistics industry is in high demand and has many opportunities for growth for those considering a career in this area. There are also all the back office supporting roles from supply chain, finance, marketing and HR that all have an impact on the logistics industry.
