Sectors we cover


Transport Sector Overview

Whilst passenger transport took a downturn in 2020, the pandemic caused logistics and distribution-related transport to snowball. It’s a crucial part of the ‘new normal’.

  • The transport industry directly employs approximately 10 million people, and makes up 5% of GDP.
  • Transport, logistics and storage are key in European manufacturing, accounting for 10–15% of the total cost of a finished product.
  • UK roads transport more freight per kilometre of the motorway than any other major economy (excluding Japan).
  • Because of the transport sector’s heavy reliance on oil resources, their carbon footprint is high, so boosting sustainability and efficiency is a key objective for businesses.

Transport Sector Details

Considering the demand to be more sustainable, transport specialists have a lot resting on their shoulders. Managers are required to have strong technical abilities to boost efficiency, plus agility to move swiftly in an ever-changing market.

  • We recruit for a diverse range of transport talent roles including logistics, distribution and supply chain management.
  • Leaders should be analytical and innovative problem solvers, with a strategic and learning-focused mindset.
  • The sector lacks gender and cultural diversity, and the younger generation doesn’t see it as an attractive career option, which means there are recruitment challenges to address.
