Developments in logistics technologies create demand for top talent

Logistics is fast becoming the most exciting part of the broader supply chain, especially within B2C industries where companies are competing on delivery service as well as price. We have seen a real focus on technology driven improvements on last mile delivery and increasingly complex omni-channel operations. With this, the calibre of skillsets required for logistics roles is ever increasing.

Over the last 6 months we have been fortunate enough to partner with some of the fastest growing start-up businesses as well as some of the most revered larger players. Companies such as M&S, Ferrero, Innocent & Matches Fashion have recruited fantastic roles though Pod, with a real focus on driving improvements and building the best logistics networks for years to come.

With Brexit looming, a lot of businesses are trying to future-proof their European operations by hiring additional support within Customs and Import/Export. This is already leading to a shortage of qualified people and increased salaries, a trend which is likely to continue.

In truth, there is a real shortage of top talent across the ever expanding logistics market. We have seen the best Carrier Managers, Project Managers, and customer focused logistics professionals being fought after; with clients understanding that the speed of their process directly impacts their ability to hire successfully.

Luckily that’s where we come in! We have a team of experts here at Pod who solely recruit into the logistics market and are truly specialised by industry and level. So, if you'd be interested in hearing about live vacancies, or if you have any hard-to-fill vacancies, then we'd love to hear from you.
