Transport and logistics: Australia’s powerhouse
Without transport and logistics professionals, Australia’s economy would slow to a crawl. And those folks are going to be even more important in future. According to the Australian Logistics Council, the quantity of goods being shipped to, from and across Australia will triple by the year 2050. Government stats suggest the sector is responsible for nearly 5% of GDP.
That’s just under $80 billion a year!
You could be part of the innovation that makes Australia a world leader in years to come.
Get in on the ground floor
According to a Department of Employment paper, transport and logistics employers are more likely than others to employ an apprentice or trainee because they plan to up-skill them and keep them for the long term. Great things are coming for those who’ve been in the industry for some time, too. For example, there’s set to be a 3.5% growth in the number of jobs for specialist supply, distribution and procurement managers. It’s up to you to be ready to step up and take on management responsibilities. Luckily, we can help with that.
