Road transport is a forward-looking sector, where technological advancements, operational innovations, and environmental consciousness are at the forefront. As a recruiter, I emphasise the diverse career paths available in logistics – from IT and project management to finance and marketing. It’s a rewarding sector where opportunities abound for those willing to embrace its potential.

Addressing Critical Issues

National Lorry Week also sheds light on critical issues within the industry. Professional drivers, the backbone of road transport, deserve respect and understanding.
