Newark and Sherwood District Council holds workshop about logistics sector
A workshop was held for businesses based in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire to learn more about the logistics sector and how they can benefit from the latest trends, research and technological change.
Newark Logistics Workshop took place on Tuesday at Newark College and was free to attend.
It was hosted by Newark and Sherwood District Council in partnership with Newark College, part of the Lincoln College Group, the University of Lincoln and Nottingham Trent University.
Research was conducted at the start of the year by Nottingham-based FOCUS Consultants to understand the skills and training needs of logistics businesses in the area. The findings were presented as part of the workshop.
Feedback from the consultation will be used to inform what courses are needed by both Nottingham Trent University and the University of Lincoln to ensure people are training to meet the needs of a new enterprise hub.
The Smart Innovation, Supply Chain and Logistics (SiScLog) Enterprise Area will not only create a centre of logistical excellence with regional and national reach but provide hundreds of jobs.
