Course description

Warehousing and the storage of goods is an essential part of logistics operations within a business. Roles vary and require great skill and organisation to coordinate the demand and supply of goods and ultimately meet customer needs.


Course content

This Apprenticeship is aimed at individuals who are looking to undertake varied warehousing, storage and logistics activities. It is about the safe and efficient receipt, movement, storage handling and dispatch of goods in a warehousing and logistics environment.
