Warehousing and Storage Apprenticeships in West Yorkshire

Warehousing and Storage

warehousing

Introduction

This Apprenticeship deals with the movement and storage of goods, and is an essential part of logistics operations.

However, there’s more to this job than just lifting and moving things around (although it does involve a fair bit of that, so you’ll need to be fit and have to learn how to lift things properly).

As a Warehousing and Storage apprentice, you might learn skills in operating specialist machinery to get things onto – and down from – high storage spaces; learn about keeping some goods at low temperatures; and improve your spatial awareness, so that you can quickly and efficiently load objects of different shapes and sizes.

Your duties will depend on your employer, but you could manage stock; audit inventory; keep equipment in good working order; process returned goods; or manage the receipt, storage and dispatch of goods.

You might even learn how to maintain the safety of hazardous goods and materials. 

Good teamwork is important when you’re working to a tight schedule, such as loading or unloading a lorry that can only wait for a little while before it needs to go on to the next job.
