Real-World Experiences with Employers

As a full-time student at Hugh Baird College, you won't just be learning in a classroom; you'll gain real-world experiences and meaningful engagements with employers through work placements, guest speakers and employer-set projects.

What is Logistics?

This logistics sector includes sourcing and purchasing of goods and services, from merchandising and transport to supply chain and procurement. Logistics spans a vast array of industries, offering hundreds of career paths in disciplines such as engineering, business, IT, marketing, finance, port operations, management and transport.

In the UK, the logistics industry employs over 7 million individuals, and in the Liverpool City Region specifically, it stands as one of the most rapidly expanding industries, largely due to the introduction of the new Freeport.

LCR Freeport

The Liverpool City Region (LCR) Freeport is one of only eight freeports in England.

Freeports are special areas within the UK’s borders where different economic regulations apply. By delivering investment on specific sites benefitting from tax and customs incentives, freeports create thousands of high-quality jobs.

The LCR Freeport is a multi-gateway, multi-modal zone covering 300 hectares of land and the freeport sites, which include several existing rail terminals and water-accessible locations. It is estimated that the freeport will add £850m to the local economy over the coming years.
