Menzies’ Learning in Logistics campaign is a critical training initiative that stands alongside our mission for continuous improvement, best in class service & commitment to shaping the future of sustainable supply chains.

Our Learning in Logistics campaign aims to highlight the variety of career paths the industry has to offer.

Whether you are a school leaver preparing to take the first steps in your career, or an experienced individual looking for a change in direction or a chance to upskill, the logistics industry has opportunities to offer everyone.


During the course of the year, Menzies will illustrate the huge variety of apprenticeships and qualifications undertaken by staff members, discussing their different journeys to arrive in the world of logistics and providing insight into choices for young people, career development for longer-serving staff, flexibility and the motivations for choosing these routes.

We will be engaging with all our stakeholders to explain our company's own role in enhancing the quality and accessibility of learning in logistics.

During 2022, our Company was widely recognised by industry bodies, major media outlets and standards organisations for all key elements of its work, including service excellence, safety, storage and distribution standards, and as Covid Hero of the Year.


We look forward to further success in 2023 as Menzies continues to strive to set benchmarks in training for younger people and career development in all areas of its workforce.

I came up through the business, joining in 2011. Having learned the trade first, doing this course has been a strong validation that I’ve learned well on the job.
