Warehousing & Storage
These qualifications are available at Level 2 and Level 3 and deal with the movement and storage of goods.
This is an essential part of a logistics operation but there is more to this job than just lifting and moving things around.
At Level 2, someone might learn skills in operating specialist machinery to get things onto – and down from – high storage spaces; learn about keeping some goods at low temperatures; and improve their spatial awareness, so that objects of different shapes and sizes can be loaded quickly and efficiently.
Duties will depend on the employer, but could include managing stock; audit inventory; keeping equipment in good working order; processing returned goods; or managing the receipt, storage and despatch of goods, possibly including hazardous ones. Good teamwork is important when working to a tight schedule, such as loading or unloading a lorry that can only wait for a little while before it needs to go on to the next job.
At Level 3 the job will also include some supervisory duties, possibly managing a team within the warehouse.
- Warehouse operative
- Forklift driver
- Warehouse Team Leader/Supervisor
