Think Logistics

Think Logistics is an education and employability programme that the DHL UK Foundation support.  The programme, delivered by Career Ready with support leading Logistics partners, aims to raise the profile of the logistics industry with young people and increase their awareness of the career pathways available to them within the sector.

The partnership between the DHL UK Foundation and Think Logistics is focussed on establishing 50 Think Logistics centres by 2020, through which we aim to deliver employability workshops showcasing Logistics. Funding the programme has increased its reach allowing DHL to bring insight and expertise to young people, by delivering classroom workshops, facilitating site visits and mentoring young people, in order to make them work ready.

DHL colleagues are able to engage with the students at the Think Logistics centres to inspire them about the world of work. There are lots of ways that you can get involved with as little as an hour of your time.

  • Guest teacher lesson – DHL colleagues can deliver a workshop in the classroom environment to inspire the students
  • Site visits – providing students an insight into the logistics industry, showcasing DHL sites.
  • Mentoring – one on one mentoring helping to develop students through their transition from education into employment.
  • Work Placement opportunities– providing work placement opportunities for students.
  • Local Advisory board member – providing strategic support between the place of education, employers and the students.
