The History of the Logistics Job Shop

Logistics Job Shop (LJS) was created in 2010 to reflect the changing requirements of online recruitment and to fill the gap between generalist job boards and traditional contingent agency recruitment.

Until Logistics Job Shop was active in 2012 there was no niche logistics job boards advertising traditional permanent logistics roles, from hourly paid driving and warehousing roles to senior Management and technical positions. This was exemplified by the fact that a number of leading logistics companies were using generalist job boards as part of their standard recruitment processes.

Logistics Job Shop has now established itself as a complete Job Platform for the Logistics and Supply Chain industry.

IN LATE 2014 Logistics job Shop was awarded a three year licence agreement with RTM (Road Transport Media) to provide full print & online recruitment services including: http://www.motortransportjobs.co.uk/ , http://www.commercialmotorjobs.com/ & http://www.truckanddriverjobs.co.uk/

Logistics Job Shop has already achieved preferred recruitment partner status for many other logistics organisations including a large, high profile distribution/retail organisation.
