Logistics sector in hiring drive


The Polish logistics sector is poised to create over 1,000 new jobs in 2011, from lorry drivers through warehouse workers through crane operators through mid-level managers, according to a survey by Rzeczpospolita. The optimistic outlook for hiring points to continued economic recovery, the logistics industry being a bellwether of the wider economy.

Thus, Raben, the Dutch logistics group, plans to increase staff levels at its Raben Polska unit by 7-9% in the course of 2011, from about 2,400 at the moment; and to boost employment at Raben Transport by 5% (the group's Polish operation consists of four units and currently employs 3,600 people). DHL Express and TNT are also hiring new workers. And so are Polish logistics operators: DCT Gdansk, which manages a transhipment terminal at the Gdansk harbour, for example, aims to create 100 new permanent jobs and hire an unspecified number of temp workers before the end of the year. Employment at Pekaes is expected to increase as well.
