I have found that the level of service and professionalism is exceptional. For me, one of the most important aspects of any relationship is ongoing communication and ensuring that I am kept up to speed with a process and how this is progressing and this is certainly an element of the service provided that I feel is a strength of Cast.
Freight logistics companies either manage their own distribution system (own account operators), or manage it on behalf of another as ‘third-party logistics’ (3PL) or ‘hauliers’. More than 60% of UK freight is carried as 3PL.
- Investment in the UK's railway and airport infrastructure will almost double over the decade to 2025, according to a report published in October 2015 by PwC and Oxford Economics.
- The good news for logistics is that oil prices are now predicted to remain low for some time, reducing the impact of UK fuel duty which remains the highest in the EU.
- Our transport network needs to be resilient, to withstand the shockwaves generated by the natural world and the global economic market.
- Logistics must deliver more frequently and within more restricted time windows as customers subscribe to an ‘anytime, anywhere’ philosophy.
- Significant investment is required to ensure a robust infrastructure that will deliver the strategy for growth and boost global exports.
Transport and logistics plays a critical role in the UK economy. There remains a high demand for skilled and experienced workers, with opportunities to work globally within this sector.
- We recruit a broad spectrum of managerial roles in logistics, from procurement to warehouse, distribution and supply chain management.
- The sector currently has an ageing workforce; in 2013 just 15% of employees were under 30.
- Skills that are in demand include strategic management, customer service and advanced IT capabilities.
