Update: Goods Movement Project

Hamilton is on the move!  road signThis project focuses on career and business development opportunities in the goods movement and supply chain, and logistics industry in Hamilton.


We will look at traditional modes of transportation, as well as the supply chain side of all sectors. We have been in contact with key informants (sector councils, employers, associations) that work in this industry. We will continue to contact informants and distribute an online employer survey to ask for local feedback on workforce needs.
In the meanwhile, industrial profiles are being created for each sector identified in the guide.
If you work in the goods movement and supply chain and logistics sector please complete our workforce survey, by clicking here.
