Increased police patrolling in warehousing and industrial areas, and an increased presence of female staff in police stations can help create a more secure and welcoming environment for women in the industry.
The shift towards digitalization accelerated by the pandemic has had a positive impact on the hiring sentiment for women in the logistics and supply chain industry.
The logistics and supply chain industry has seen a significant increase in the number of women employees in recent years. A report by Gartner suggests that this growth can be attributed to the integration of digitization and automation, which has led to the creation of new jobs and the transformation of older ones. This has created enhanced opportunities for women in the sector, and the percentage of female staff has risen from 8-10% to 20-25%.
