1st September 2016: One of the UK’s leading industrial estates is joining forces with a college Logistics Academy in a bid to attract young people into logistics and address the national skills shortage in this sector.

Brackmills Industrial Estate, located off junction 15 of the M1, on the edge of Northampton, has signed up to the Northampton College Logistics Academy and is now urging resident businesses to get involved.

On Friday, 7th October Brackmills will be hosting a logistics breakfast event at automation business Festo Ltd, which is based on the estate’s Caswell Road. Neighbouring businesses on Brackmills are all being invited – to find out more about how they can get involved, benefit from and tap into the expertise of the Northampton College Logistics Academy.
