I’ve been recruiting in the logistics and transport sector for almost 10 years now but prior to this, as some of you may know, I worked in logistics myself.
While everyone else is looking forward to a (hopefully!) hot summer and watching the Olympics on TV with their feet up, Logistics professionals are deep in planning for the retail Peak season already.

Having previously worked in the Logistics industry for 10 years, I know that ‘peak’ trading is a period that is talked about throughout the year with a mixture of dread and excitement.
