Founded in 2013 by Steve Granite, Abbey Logistics Group’s CEO, Think Logistics has grown rapidly. Think Logistics is the industry working in partnership to address a common issue: the talent gap in the logistics profession.
The Think Logistics board comprises of Chief Executives from two of the largest membership bodies in the profession, CILT (UK) and FTA, the Chair of NOVUS and Steve Granite, Founder of Think Logistics. The board is chaired by Beverley Bell CBE, former Senior Traffic Commissioner for Great Britain.
Think Logistics is supported through a partnership with Career Ready, a UK-wide charity working with 11 – 18 year olds that links employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people. For students aged 18 – 22 Think Logistics works with NOVUS, a not-for-profit organisation operating under the umbrella of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK (CILT (UK)) focused on undergraduate students studying four-year sandwich courses with a business, logistics, operations management or supply chain component. These partnerships enable Think Logistics to reach young people and provide an insight into the logistics profession and help to open their eyes to a range of job opportunities they may not have considered previously.
Support from the industry comes from over 40 logistics companies that provide mentors, work placements, internships and support at workshops at schools, colleges and universities.
Our supporters are key to the success of Think Logistics. They are directly responsible for showcasing the opportunities available to the next generation of innovators and business leaders, who will develop our unique sector for the future.
