Previously an exclusively in-house facility, the Eddie Stobart Training Academy now enables businesses, drivers and workers, from across the logistics and supply chain sectors, to broaden and improve key skills required in a rapidly evolving overall business environment.
The Training Academy, designed to raise the standards across the supply chain including driving, health and safety, omnichannel logistics and e-commerce / IT solutions, is located at Eddie Stobart’s 60,000ft2 head office in Appleton. It is situated alongside fleet operations, IT, HR, business systems and administration.
Alex Laffey, CEO of Eddie Stobart Logistics, said; “The supply chain is critical to the success of UK PLC and the skillsets required for success are expanding as the sector adapts to key trends such as the wide adoption of e-commerce. Eddie Stobart has based its longstanding reputation on customer satisfaction, delivered by ensuring its own employees are the best trained in the industry. We are proud to open the doors of our Training Academy to bring new people into the industry, broaden skills and help make our sector more flexible, agile and ready to meet new challenges and opportunities.”
