Small businesses urged to get involved with Generation Logistics

Thursday 27 July 2023

Logistics UK is delighted to announce it will continue its support and management of Generation Logistics, the industry led skills awareness campaign, and urges the whole sector to get on board for year two.

There are opportunities for organisations of all sizes to get involved, and Generation Logistics has announced a heavily discounted sponsorship package for smaller companies.  In year two, organisations with turnovers of less than £20m will be able to join as Silver sponsors for £2,000 pa – more details can be found here: Become a Sponsor.

The first year of the initiative, that is jointly managed by CILT (UK) and Logistics UK, has generated almost 600,000 visits to the Generation Logistics web Hub and over three million engagements on social media.  Year two will build on these results and focus on raising awareness among educators in schools and colleges. Sponsors will be able to tap into the Generation Logistics network, promote entry-level schemes, amplify social media posts using the campaign’s channels and participate in Generation Logistics Week.

Logistics UK President and Executive Sponsor of Generation Logistics, Phil Roe said, “For the industry to thrive and attract the next generation of talent, it is vital that the whole sector comes together behind Generation Logistics. We are passionate about representing the whole sector which is why we have introduced a substantially discounted opportunity for smaller companies. Over the last year, the industry has delivered a high-profile, national awareness campaign – the first time this has happened – and we are definitely shifting perceptions.  Year two is going to be even better and I would urge companies of all sizes to come forward and support the campaign in its second year.”

Gold and Silver sponsorship options are also available for larger organisations and companies interested in supporting the initiative can download more information from the campaign’s hub – Become a Sponsor.
