Green Light Day

Green Light Day

Give your transport and logistics career the green light

Green Light Day is an awareness initiative for students in years 10-12 to highlight the range of careers available in the transport and logistics industry.

In NSW, more than 500,000 people, almost 14 per cent of the workforce, are employed in the transport and logistics industry.

With population and freight volumes growing, the demand for skilled transport and logistics workers will increase.

Green Light Day 2016

On 29 July 2016, 120 students from across Western Sydney visited one of three locations to get a first-hand look at roles including logistics managers, freight loaders, forklift operators, and train and truck drivers. 

The students received practical careers advice from people working in the industry and from TAFE NSW, and also had the opportunity to: 

  • Take a behind the scenes look one of NSW’s largest freight cargo planes, the C130, loading freight at Richmond’s Royal Australian Air force (RAAF) base
  • Discover the Woolworths’ Sydney Regional Distribution Centre at Minchinbury that services over 190 NSW Woolworths stores
  • View shipping containers moved from road to rail (and vice versa) at the Sydney Intermodal Terminal, Chullora (Pacific National). 

Green Light Day was made possible through the generous support of the following organisations:>
