Here at Bis Henderson Academy, we are proud providers of logistics apprenticeships, the first big step towards a promising career in the logistics or supply chain industries.
Although many people considering an apprenticeship with us are aware of the many opportunities that a career in logistics can bring, we see it as our duty to inform our readers of these opportunities regardless.
For a career with more benefits than most, try logistics
One of the primary reasons why you should consider a career in logistics is the swift growth in employment opportunities that the sector is set to see in the coming years.
Statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, for instance, have shown that employment in logistics is expected to grow by 21.9% from 2012 to 2022, or by 27,600 jobs, with similar trends observable elsewhere across the world.
Here in the UK, meanwhile, the logistics and posts sector is worth approximately £55 billion to the economy and comprises 5% of the UK GDP, with 1.7 million people employed in the sector by more than 63,000 companies.
Should you wish to advance in your career in whatever way, the logistics industry offers plenty of opportunities to do just that thanks to its many facets and levels.
Speaking of which, a career in logistics ensures that you will most likely be doing something different each and every day. One day you may be working on the transportation of a piece of machinery across the country, while the next, you may be helping to ship first aid supplies to a town struck by natural disaster.
Bearing in mind that logistics roles touch on such wide-ranging areas as operations, warehousing, transportation and customer service, we think it’s fair to say that plenty of opportunities for promising logistics apprentices are on the horizon.
A stable career when you need it most
A career in logistics also promises considerable long-term stability.
The logistics industry has a huge impact on the economy as a whole and greatly affects our quality of life. Without logistics, our world wouldn’t have the proper distribution of food, water, clothing and healthcare – all necessities for our modern society.
It is because of this that we believe the logistics industry is not only a rewarding, evolving and exciting one in the here and now, but also one that will retain its relevance for a long time to come.
