2nd National Week of Transport and Logistics Professions

National Week of Transport and Logistics Professions: An Opportunity Fair

During the week of June 5, 2023, Pôle emploi Réunion organized the 2nd National Week of Transport and Logistics Professions, an initiative aimed at addressing current and future recruitment needs in this booming sector, enhancing its attractiveness, inspiring vocations, and presenting the diversity and reality of the various professions that compose it.

With a diverse reality and range of jobs, transport, and logistics are interrelated sectors experiencing growth due to the development of international trade and e-commerce. It’s worth noting that this sector offers multiple professional opportunities and varied career prospects but is experiencing increasing recruitment tension in the labor market. From April 2022 to March 2023, no fewer than 2,117 job offers were recorded, mainly focused on the professions of goods transport driving, road public transport driving, and short-distance delivery driving.

Moreover, it’s interesting to note that the private sector experienced an increase of 200 employees during the fourth quarter of 2022, representing a rise of 1.2 %. These figures reflect the positive dynamics of this sector and its contribution to the local economy. Additionally, the results of the « Labor Needs (BMO) 1 » survey conducted by Pôle emploi and published last April highlight a large number of hiring intentions planned for 2023 in the transport and logistics professions, thus underscoring the growing importance of this sector in the region’s economic landscape.

On the 1st edition of the Week

It’s essential to recall that the 1st National Week dedicated to transport and logistics professions took place in December 2022 under the observation of the previous year’s figures. Indeed, in 2021, more than 2 million people worked in transport and logistics, including 1.4 million employees. Job offers increased by 51 % that year, mainly for long-distance goods transport driving, short-distance driving and delivery, and public transport driving. 71 % of these offers were permanent contracts. Regional events and webinars were proposed to facilitate meetings between professionals, job seekers, and people undergoing professional retraining. The aim was to inspire vocations and meet the labor needs of companies.
