Euskadi boosts employment in logistics and transport with the creation of 30,000 jobs in 10 years


The three provincial councils have collaborated in the implementation of a training plan in the sector.

Employment opportunities in the logistics and transport sector will grow by 34% in the next ten years, which means almost 30,000 jobs in the Basque Country.

This was announced by the second vice-president of the Basque Government and Minister of Labor and Employment of the Basque Government, Idoia Mendia, during the presentation of a joint plan with the Provincial Council of Alava and the City Council of Vitoria to train 600 unemployed and professionals in this area.

According to Lanbide's predictions until 2032, it is expected that 29,531 "opportunities for as many people" will be generated in the transport and storage sector, half of them practically due to generational replacement and the other half due to the new needs that are being created in this activity.

Mendia explained that this sector is going through "important transformations derived from the expansion of multimodal transport, digitalization and new technologies", but also due to the new needs of supply chains, the change in consumption patterns linked to e-commerce and the search for energy and climate sustainability.

To address this situation, the three institutions have collaborated in the implementation of a training plan in logistics and transport to which the Basque Government will allocate 1.3 million euros and that will allow 600 people, both unemployed and active, to be trained in this sector.
