As National Apprenticeship week (8 – 12 February) is almost finished, the British International Freight Association has repeated its call for freight forwarding and logistics companies to consider recruiting apprentices.
An executive director of BIFA, Carl Hobbis said: “We know it’s a tough call, with the pandemic and the post transition period continuing to disrupt many freight forwarders’ operations.
…Now, more than ever, we need to promote the industry and give young people employment opportunities. We have had an apprenticeship standard for international freight forwarding for three years and the sector has been in the news more than ever, so what a great time to encourage someone to consider a career in forwarding.”
