Analysing the evolution of the Logistics and Transport sector, finding out how the COVID pandemic has affected the sector and debating the training needs of thesector taking into account the new professional profiles are the objectives of the technical conference on 21 May, which will be held in person and via streaming (see link below):
This event is included in the Work Plan of the National Reference Centre in Commercial Logistics and Transport Management, located in CIFPA. The conference will bring together companies and organisations from the Logistics and Transport sector, Vocational Training educational centres where these specialities are taught and the network of national reference centres.
"Companies and VET facing the future of Logistics and Transport" is the title of this meeting in which the sector map and the training needs of the sector will be presented. This study indicates the main challenges to be faced, which revolve around digitalisation, sustainability, training and attracting talent. Currently, only 7 percent of the personnel employed in Logistics and Transport is under 30 years of age, which, according to the participants in this study, shows that this is a sector that is not very visible and attractive to young people. Companies are demanding more technical training and a strengthening of transversal skills and languages.
The president of the Spanish Confederation of Road Transport Business Organisations (CONETRANS) and of the Zaragoza Federation of Freight Transport Companies (FETRAZ), Carmelo González, will give a presentation focused on the present and future of the sector. Ángel Gil, Managing Director of the Logistics Cluster of Aragon (ALIA) and Vice-President of the Spanish Logistics Centre (CEL), will focus on the reality of Aragon and what the logistics sector means as the backbone of the region.
The day will continue with a round table dedicated to human capital with the participation of the HR managers of Carreras Grupo Logístico and Grupo Sesé, Mª Ángeles Amorós and Rosa Esteban, respectively. Fernando Lorente, director of the Professional Qualifications Agency of Aragon, will also be present.
The meeting will end with the presentation of the FP Emplea platform of the Directorate General for Innovation and Vocational Training and the Training Plan 2021 of the CRN for Commercial Logistics and Transport Management, the organiser of the event.
