We know industrial recruitment
With an increase in online sales and distribution methods, a renewed focus on warehousing and logistics in the modern economy now exists. The need to access labour in volume and at short notice has never been greater.
We are well-positioned to meet the challenges in the sector head-on by engaging with the best people and technologies available.
Our team of recruiters and workforce planning specialists know that a robust and attractive employee value proposition (EVP) is essential when attracting the best talent.
Flexibility, accessibility, pay and reward, fairness and wellbeing are key as we navigate talent in the UK’s industrial landscape, and have been key in providing a more progressive and flexible approach to workforce planning.
Industrial warehouse recruitment
Reed's experience and customer reach in the industrial warehouse sector is nationwide, and we engage with more than 15,000 workers annually. Our specialist recruiters manage flexible workforces across all major UK conurbations, alongside having the ability to mobilise high-volume requirements at short notice.

With over 20 years of experience as a recruitment specialist in the industrial, aviation, and warehouse sectors, we can provide tailor-made solutions to suit your recruitment needs.
Transport & logistics recruitment
Logistics recruitment has proven to be essential in the modern world. With plenty of investment being proposed for transport infrastructure, specialists in transport and logistics will continue to be in high demand. So, if you’re a client looking to evolve, we are here to help.
Reed recognises the value of mobility and has created a transport solution that enables us to ensure you recruit the workforce you need. Our experts source professionals across the full spectrum of transport and logistics, from operations to warehousing. As methods and strategies in transport and logistics change and evolve, we continue to adapt our service, offering the very best recruitment solutions.

And understand your pain points...
Working closely with your team, our approach to talent pool management comes from tried and tested methodology. We know that talent is everywhere, but the key is knowing how to unlock and serve it.
Our specialists can tailor our managed service solutions to your business, while digitising engagement and deployment processes, to provide your business with high-volume order management and workforce planning.
Our state-of-the-art scheduling software provides clarity over the bookings you have posted. Fulfilment progress is updated in real-time and delivers critical insights to support the decision-making process.
Currently, we manage up to 30,000 shifts per week across more than 100 locations. Our scheduling software enables us to visualise available, resting and deployed worker pools - meaning short-notice resourcing solutions can be identified with speed.
Having recognised the value of mobility, we have created a transport solution that enables us to bring the workforce directly to your door.
We devise flexible transport options for workforces of any size, short or long term, to reach workers without their own means of transport. Our service also offers a cleaner and greener commute for people, reducing car parking pressure and supporting progress towards a net-zero economy.
To effectively support your organisation’s strategy, we provide an array of self-served analytics enabling you to monitor staffing costs, fulfilment and trends.
Reporting requirements through Reed can be tailor-made to support your wider company objectives and track progress in a format that suits you.
