Gwynedd Shipping Think Logistics and are Loving the Lorry!
As great supporters of Think Logistics and Love the Lorry Week with the Road Haulage Aassociation, Gwynedd Shipping Group arranged a fantastic family fun day to bring young people of all ages and their parents to their operating site to get a front seat view on the world of Logistics and Transport!
Talissa Short , HR Manager, who recently shared the lead in delivering a Think Logistics Workshop to over 60 students in Deeside, commented “We can happily say it was a success, we raised a total of £332.82 for Welsh Air Ambulance. And there were some lucky winners on the day too (Harvey Jones who won the Ipad Competition, Gruff Jones who won Amazon vouchers & Emily Thrasher who won a Toy Gwynedd Shipping Truck).
The reason we held the event was to encourage young people and children to come and have a look at what we do, share some interesting facts and knowledge about the logistics industry & how important the industry is in keeping everything functioning as we know it and to have a lot of fun in the process.
Everyone, children and adults seem to really enjoy the day. The bouncy castles, the delicious food, but in particular having a good look around the trucks and all the technology on board.
We hope to hold a bigger event again next year as it was brilliant to see peoples genuine interest on the day. “
