It will consist of a mix of in-person and online events at both national and regional levels and will be formally launched in Rosslare Europort on 27 March by Jack Chambers, Minister of State at the Department of Transport with special responsibility for International and Road Transport and Logistics.

Logistics and Supply Chain Skills Week

Logistics Week is an initiative of the Logistics and Supply Chain Skills Group (LSCSG), founded in 2019 to develop and deploy practical actions to address the skills needs of the logistics and supply chain sector. The Group provides a forum for practical action and collaboration aimed at addressing the skills needs of the sector. The membership of the LSCSG includes key stakeholder representatives from government, academia and industry, and is currently chaired by the Department of Transport, on the basis of the department’s links to the wider transport industry. The Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Department of Social Protection also play a key role in the work of the Group.

A number of events will be held, including in-person, hybrid and online events organised in co-operation with stakeholder representatives from academia, and industry.
