“We are thrilled to be recognised and approved as an APAR apprenticeship training provider. Ultimately, we want to support members in driving productivity and growth and this a great opportunity for Logistics UK to help businesses to upskill their existing employees and attract new talent into the industry. I would like to congratulate and thank everyone involved who helped make this happen. We look forward to continuing to deliver on our outstanding training reputation and encourage anybody interested to take part in one of our upcoming apprenticeship webinars which will provide more information.”
