Clipper Logistics, a leading provider of value-added logistics solutions, e-fulfilment and returns management services, is pleased to announce it has been shortlisted for the Apprenticeship of the Year at the Motor Transport Awards 2021, alongside DPD UK and DAF Trucks UK.
Clipper’s hard work over the past 12-months in recruiting and retaining the best talent has contributed to being shortlisted for the prestigious award, which recognises the most successful apprenticeship schemes in the motor transport industry.
The logistics sector is a major employer within the UK, employing approximately 1.8 million people across distribution centres, fulfilment operations and transport. Accelerated by the growth of eCommerce, more demands are being placed on specialist retail logistics providers to respond quickly and efficiently to customer requests, which means developing forward-thinking leaders of the future.
Learning and development has long been on Clipper’s agenda. With a growing portfolio of higher education and degree apprenticeships, Clipper gives talented individuals the opportunity to study whilst earning and learning on the job.
Through a series of specially designed modules, Clipper’s learning and development programmes often lead to apprentices gaining industry-recognised, professional status following completion of their apprenticeship, helping students prosper in their future careers in logistics.
The Motor Transport Awards 202 will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on 2nd September 2021 to recognise and reward excellence in the road freight transport industry.
