Getting into transport and logistics


The logistics sector covers a wide range of jobs, from lorry drivers to warehouse staff, delivery drivers to team leaders, and taxi drivers to postal workers. These jobs play a key part in helping Britain work by delivering people and products to where they’re needed.

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a real impact on some jobs – like in public transport – but there’s been huge growth in other jobs, like warehouse staff and delivery drivers to get our online orders to our front doors.

You won’t always need experience to get into jobs in the logistics sector. Your transferable skills, such as people skills and communication skills, from other jobs could make you a great fit, even if you’ve never considered these types of roles before. For some jobs, like a lorry driver, you’ll need the right license.

In this section we have information about some of the main job types on offer now, and where to find vacancies advertised.
