Past Events

The inaugural 'Making the Connection' seminar was held in November 2017 at Carnes Hill Community Centre. The aim of the event was to demonstrate to school students, teachers, TAFE and employment services the career opportunities within the Transport and Logistics industry in the Liverpool LGA.

The panel was comprised of representatives from Simon National Carriers (Moorebank), Transit Systems NSW (Hoxton Park) and Rohlig Australia (Moorebank).

The discussion focused on challenges, training and career paths in the Transport and Logistics sector. The panel provided advice to the students and gave insight and knowledge on different skill sets needed to be successful within the industry and on how the industry might change in the future, particularly in the Liverpool LGA.
