The Cold Chain Federation: Investing In The Next Generation

This exciting new initiative is designed to support the development of future leaders in the temperature-controlled logistics industry.

Backing the Future

The Cold Chain industry is fast-paced and constantly evolving. Recognising the need to develop future skills, the Cold Chain Federation has created this program to empower the next generation of leaders.

The Programme

Starting in 2024, two outstanding individuals working in temperature-controlled logistics will be selected each year to participate in this program. These rising stars will benefit from a comprehensive package designed to cultivate their leadership potential:

  • Tailored Leadership Course: A 12-month program that partnered with The Leadership Trust, combining residential courses, online workshops, and coaching modules. Find out about the course here.
  • Industry Exposure: Participation in the Cold Chain Federation’s key events, including the Climate Summit, the CCF Parliamentary Reception, and Cold Chain Live!
  • Media Training: Gain experience communicating through industry media, including an interview in Cold Chain News magazine.

I would recommend a career in logistics to any young person just starting out. There are so many different avenues to progress within the industry. It’s such a diverse and well structured industry to be involved with. I am extremely glad to have been given the opportunity to begin my second career in the logistics and transport industry with my company

In our fast-moving industry, developing future skills is of the highest priority for every cold chain operator and the industry as a whole. We are delighted to launch the Cold Chain Emerging Leaders Programme today and to invite all CCF storage and distribution members to nominate individuals for the selection process.
“This new programme will help CCF members give their talented, hard-working people the chance to shine. It will also help build skills that will be crucial for temperature-controlled logistics leaders in the future within our industry. The Cold Chain Federation is committed to supporting CCF members in this essential mission. The new Cold Chain Emerging Leaders Programme will create exciting new opportunities for individuals and their employers
