Transform my Truck campaign hits the radio waves

Transport Training Academy directors, David Coupe and Rachael Scanlin, were delighted to appear as guests on BBC Radio Lancashire on Monday morning to promote the logistics industry and address the issue of the skill shortage in the sector. Speaking to host Brett Davison, David and Rachael, told listeners that the logistics industry is currently at a critical crossroads and desperately needs new blood and fresh talent if the sector is to continue to thrive.

Rachael and David told listeners that logistics has historically often been seen as a last resort in career terms: something that people often drifted into when they hadn’t got any clear idea what they wanted to do in the longer term. However, they stressed that things are starting to change, and whilst logistics may now be increasingly seen as a positive career choice, more still needs to be done to secure the sector for the future. So TTA, one of the North West’s leading logistics training organisations, is on a mission to transform and change perspectives and encourage more young people to embrace logistics and consider it as a worthwhile and satisfying long-term career.

#Transform My Truck

As part of its ‘logistics drive’, TTA has launched the ‘#Transform My Truck’ campaign in order to attract more young people into the sector, raise awareness of the multitude of career opportunities available in the industry and hopefully help to dispel some of the misleading myths and stereotypes that shroud this vibrant sector.

So what is the ‘#Transform My Truck’ campaign all about?

Well, it’s a competition which will hopefully inspire young people to think about what the logistics is all about. TTA wants young people to use their skills, imagination and talents to transform the side of a blank 7 metre rigid truck. What we’re asking pupils from schools across the North West to do is to use their creative skills to transform this blank canvas into a work of art by drawing or painting a design which shows the different forms of transport used to get goods from one location to another.

Who can enter the ‘#Transform My Truck’ competition?

The competition is open to all school children in the region. Two winning designs will be chosen: one from the age category Under 12 and the other from the 13 to 16 age range. The two winning artists will not only have the satisfaction of having their design proudly displayed on one side of our truck, but will also win a £100 Amazon voucher and a grant of up to £500 for their schools. TTA will also be offering runner-up prizes in both categories: £50 worth of Amazon vouchers and a £300 school grant for second places, and £30 worth of Amazon vouchers and a £200 school grant for third places.

During the campaign Transport Training Academy’s blank truck will be visiting schools in the region. Contact us on, visit our Facebook page @TransformMyTruck or contact us on Twitter @TTAcademy1,  and one of our trucks will visit your school and give your pupils the chance to take part in an interactive workshop where they can learn more about the logistics sector and the varied career paths and opportunities within the industry.

The competition closing date is 11.59pm on Friday 23rd March. Judging will take place by 23rd April and the winners will be announced by 7th May. The winning designs will be unveiled later in the year.
