The Ports and Logistics industry in Lincolnshire

Greater Lincolnshire is bustling!

The Agri-Food industry within the region supplies 70% of the UKs fish and 25% of the UKs vegetables. The manufacturing industry spans over 2,350 employers producing goods which are vital and sought after across the country. And the Technology industry employs 16,000 people within the region, many of whom are creating new products.

And it’s the Ports and Logistics industry which ensures these goods get to where they need to go.

Which is why Greater Lincolnshire has a massive and successful logistics infrastructure and the busiest ports in the UK.

Without this industry, supermarkets, homes and families would be lost without vital food, technology and products.

So, working within Port and Logistics is important to the running of the UK, but it’s also diverse and interesting too. Because the sector is so huge, there are plenty of interesting job roles when it comes to the transportation of Greater Lincolnshire’s produce.
