Logistics firms support Prince’s Trust industry drive

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, the Freight Transport Association and the DHL UK Foundation have invested in The Prince’s Trust “Get into Logistics” programme, which in intended to help unemployed young people across the UK move into the industry.

“We want to significantly grow the Get into Logistics programme over the next few years and there is a wealth of experience that the sector can offer the next generation,” said the charity’s director of fundraising, Julian Barrell.

“This partnership between DHL UK Foundation, the Freight Transport Association and Aspire will go a long way in ensuring we are doing just that, but we need more businesses to come forward and join in the mission.”

The programme is a two-week intensive course that gives unemployed youths hands-on experience in the industry, enabling them to develop their job skills, confidence and motivation.

Participants undertake a work placement, visit CV workshops and take part in personal development classes, after which they will receive six months of support from the charity.

“Too many young people feel that they will never reach their full potential,” said Tim Slater, chairman of The Prince’s Trust advisory group on logistics.
