Business students get out on the road

Business students in Lancashire got a lorry-load of information about careers in logistics when they visited a local transport company.

Students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form heard about a range of roles, from warehouse manager to driver to accountant, from Kibble Transport boss Matthew Kibble. He also treated them to a tour of the company and let them climb aboard a new addition to the company’s fleet.

Level three student  Zaheer Araf, 16, said: “I enjoyed seeing and sitting in the new, state-of-the-art truck while Matthew showed us all the features.

“I was surprised by the size of the warehouse and the range of products stored there. I was really impressed by the transport planner’s job — organising the full fleet of vehicles, their cargo and the routes they take.”

The visit was part of the ‘Think Logisitics’ event organised by logistics business leaders from the north west.
