The trainee recruitment programme operated by leading UK independent freight forwarder and logistics company Davies Turner & Co Ltd has entered its 10th year.
The Davies Turner training scheme, which includes both BIFA-accredited and in-house training in its wide-ranging and multimodal freight services, as well as its international logistics operations, offers an excellent foundation in all elements of the forwarding industry.
The new trainees will learn all aspects of Davies Turner’s multimodal business during the training scheme, which started this month, and can be confident that – subject to performance and practical experience – they will like many of their predecessors, have the opportunity to progress into management and supervisory roles.
During the training programme participants spend time in all surface freight and logistics divisions, in addition to gaining an overview at Davies Turner Air Cargo, central administration, IT and the company’s accounts department.
Once again, this year, Davies Turner has also recruited additional trainees separately to the group training scheme who will receive training specialising in one area of the company’s business, such as overland trailer services, ocean freight or third party logistics.
