The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has recently updated the Transport National Industry Insights Report.
Some of the key points:
- Employment levels are projected to increase in this industry cluster over the next 5 years, however an ageing workforce will create significant skills gaps as existing workers retire unless the industry can attract, retain and upskill younger workers.
- New technologies and automation are driving the need for digital skills within the industry, as well as new skills such as those required for maintenance and repair of automated equipment.
- Advancements in autonomous and driverless technology will significantly impact the workforce creating demand for new skill sets to effectively manage and operate a more automated transport and logistics network.
