Cast UK are pleased to announce we have been appointed the sole recruiter for professional level logistics personnel at Abbey Logistics. Abbey Logistics Group employ over 250 employees & in June this year they acquired most of the assets and customer base relating to the Bulk Powder transport business of Seafield Logistics Limited.

Gareth Steggles, Cast UK’s Logistics North manager said “We are elated to have secured this agreement with Abbey to service all their professional level logistics roles. We have worked with them now for some time & this is the next logical step in our relationship. Our close working partnership means we have a great insight into their culture, and this agreement allows us to have better visibility of Abbey’s requirements as they expand, ensuring we can proactively recruit the best people on their behalf.”

Steve Granite, Managing Director of ALG commented “Abbey recognises that the increased demand for excellent logistics candidates in the UK means we need to work hard to attract the best talent in the industry to maintain a top level of service for our Blue Chip clientele. We are confident that Cast UK can provide us with candidates that have the right knowledge and experience to allow us to continue our expansion going forward.”

Abbey Logistics are aware that the much published skills gap in the logistics industry will continue to cause problems in the short to medium term, hence the creation by Steve Granite of the “Think Logistics” scheme which has been set up to encourage 16 – 24 year olds to consider careers in the logistics industry.
