Carole Park based company, Team Transport & Logistics recently signed up another five new apprentices and trainees through BUSY At Work. The company has built a strong culture based around safety, through developing and training highly qualified drivers, staff and contractors.
Team Transport & Logistics specialises in a range of heavy haulage, transport and distribution services and employs over 300 people.
BUSY At Work Industry Training Consultant, Megan Barkle said BUSY was pleased to work with Team Transport & Logistics in helping young trainees and apprentices secure a bright future in the transport industry.
“During the past nine months we have assisted Team Transport with relevant information regarding Australian Apprenticeships and Traineeships and as a result they have successfully taken on five new trainees and apprentices through BUSY.”
“They’re a very supportive company who value a safe work environment and dedicate a large amount of time to training their workforce and providing a very safe workplace,” Ms Barkle said.
Team Transport & Logistics Workplace Health and Safety Officer and Trainer and Assessor, Guy Owens said all employees were given the opportunity to learn on-the-job and ensure they had the right skills, knowledge and qualifications to achieve success in their roles.
“We train our employees from the ground up so they can have a career in transport not just a job.”
“All our company drivers have a minimum standard Certificate III in Transport and Logistics and our plant operators, warehousing staff and office staff have all up skilled their qualifications well above minimum standards required for our industry.”
“When we talk with our customers we use this as a point of difference so they know our drivers and operating staff are fully experienced and understand the requirements of the role,” Mr Owens said.
Guy said while Team Transport & Logistics had many older employers, the company also enjoyed very low staff and driver turnover which allowed them to further invest in equipment and provide customised transport solutions.
“Our older drivers really appreciate that we continue to invest in training by allowing them to have one-on-one time with the trainers in their vehicles,” Mr Owens added.
Guy said Team Transport & Logistics had built an excellent working relationship with BUSY At Work supporting trainees and apprentices in achieving their career goals.
“The assistance from BUSY At Work has been impeccable and we are excited to work with them to service our apprenticeship and recruitment needs. We look forward to continuing our relationship with BUSY and ensuring our employees get the right training to meet the needs of our business,” Mr Owen said.
One recent signing through BUSY At Work is Danielle Mallasch who has just commenced her Certificate III – Warehousing.
“The staff at BUSY At Work provided me with all the knowledge and information to get started on my certificate and they have been very supportive and answer all of my questions,” Ms Mallasch said.
BUSY At Work CEO, Paul Miles said BUSY welcomed the relationship with Team Transport & Logistics and any other like minded organisations that provide further job opportunities and training for apprentices and new staff.
“At BUSY we are excited to play a key role in growing Australian Apprenticeships in one of Queensland’s largest privately owned transport companies and will continue to provide tailored services to deliver all their apprenticeship, recruitment and training needs,” Mr Miles said.
