Sun.Star Davao - - BUSINESS - DTI

Trade and In­dus­try Sec­re­tary Ra­mon Lopez re­vealed, dur­ing the 1st Lo­gis­tics Ser­vices Philip­pines Con­fer­ence on De­cem­ber 6, 2018, that there are more job op­por­tu­ni­ties in the do­mes­tic truck­ing in­dus­try.

“The grow­ing in­vest­ments in the coun­try, es­pe­cially in the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor, in­creased the de­mand for truck­ing, ship­ping, and other lo­gis­tics ser­vices. Many have in­vested in these sec­tors and are now look­ing for peo­ple to be part of their op­er­a­tions. This means more jobs for our peo­ple,” said Lopez.

Pres­i­dent of the Philip­pine Mul­ti­modal Trans­port and Lo­gis­tics As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc. (PMTLAI) pres­i­dent Mar­i­lyn Al­berto con­firmed that there is in­deed a short­age of driv­ers and truck helpers in the coun­try.

Lopez added that those in­ter­ested to join the work­force can get train­ing from the Academy of De­vel­op­men­tal Lo­gis­tics, Inc., led by Sam Bautista, and the Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (TESDA).

“It is a given that you have to train well to pro­vide good ser­vice. But the op­por­tu­nity is there, we just have to let the peo­ple know so we can link them to the proper train­ing in­sti­tu­tions,” Lopez added. /
