Transportation & Logistics Recruitment Applicant Tracking System

Recruitment within the Transport & Logistics sector is often through a centralised shared-service that works with hiring managers at a branch level to fill roles with the right talent.

Eploy's ATS (Applicant Tracking System) and Talent CRM is designed to help Transport & Logistics companies take control of their hiring processes in a faster and smarter way.

What channels do transport & logistic recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

What channels do transport & logistic recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

Recruiters in the Transport & Logistics sector turn to Professional Social Networks and their Careers Site to attract and recruit candidates. The chart shows they also use Job Aggregators and ATS/Talent Pools extensively to find candidates for their open positions. Employee Referrals see extended use (67%), up from 50% last year to help with filling roles. 

A previous top sourcing challenge for the sector was a poor perception of the industry, this has fell by 40% to just 20% this year -  perhaps another effect of the pandemic, with the population seeing just what a vital role the sector plays in keeping our shelves stocked.
