Transport – Industry of Opportunity and Rewarding Careers!

Transport & Logistics is essential to our Tasmanian way of life!

Our people deliver essential goods and services for you and your family – every day.

In the good times and the bad, we are there to support Tasmanian businesses with deliveries, into, out of and within Tasmania, to keep Tasmania moving.

Transport and Logistics employs more than 12,000 Tasmanians across businesses in road, rail, warehousing, sea, ports, air, logistics and passenger transport.  There is a huge range of career opportunities in Transport and Logistics and the rewards and opportunities are amazing.

A truck won’t drive itself, freight won’t load itself, and business won’t grow without a skilled and engaged workforce. Tasmania, like other Australian States is experiencing a major demographic shift towards an ageing population and an ageing workforce. The economic and business consequence of such a shift must not be underestimated.  This shift will impact on the transport and logistics sector if recruitment and development of young people does not occur.  Today’s school students are tomorrow’s workforce.

How the transport and logistics industry engages and connects with these young people is therefore critical to our capacity to develop an innovative and skilled workforce.

The Tasmanian Transport Association (TTA) understand this imperative and have been working in partnership with the Department of Education Tasmania to develop and implement an innovative and dynamic Australian School-based Apprenticeship workforce planning and development program dedicated to the transport and logistics industry – “Careers on the Move”

TTA supports the Australian Trucking Association Teletrac Navman Driving Change Diversity Program.

The 2020 Teletrac Navman Driving Change Diversity Program is a ground-breaking initiative that celebrates industry diversity, develops diversity champions, and improves industry image.

The program showcases diversity champions to the trucking industry and wider community through program participant stories, diversity training and a marketing campaign, promoting a positive perception of industry and encouraging new entrants into the workforce.
