During Easter, the demand for temporary transport and logistics staff increases significantly. This is because of the increased demand for goods and services during this period, because guess what, Easter Bunny isn’t real! To ensure that the transportation and logistics operations run smoothly and planners get a chance to enjoy their easter break with loved ones, we like to work pre-plan and strategise.

This includes understanding the specific requirements of each job, ensuring that all necessary equipment is available, making sure that all personnel are trained properly in their roles, and anticipating any potential delays or issues. By taking these steps, transport and logistics staff can ensure a successful Easter season with minimal disruptions or delays.

  1. Firstly, make sure that you have a well-defined plan for managing temp staff during this period. This should include clear roles and responsibilities for each person, as well as clear expectations on performance levels.
  2. Secondly, ensure that you have provided shift times and expectations in advance, to avoid any confusion for new or temporary staff so they can hit the ground running when they start work.
  3. Thirdly, provide regular feedback to your recruitment partner so they can make any necessary adjustments and ensure the staff provided are able to meet your shift needs and targets.
  4. Finally, make sure that you are monitoring performance levels throughout the season to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Partnering with the right recruitment agency ensures your shifts are covered with the right transport and logistics personnel so your business runs smoothly during this busy seasonal periods, so transport planners can enjoy the bank holiday that little bit more.
