GEODIS Aims to Add 8,000 Jobs for Peak Season
Leading third-party logistics (3PL) provider to hire thousands of teammates for peak holiday season at 19 campuses across the U.S.
With online shopping surging to record highs during the pandemic, GEODIS in Americas, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) company, is preparing for the peak season with the aim to add 8,000 seasonal jobs across 19 U.S. campuses through the end of 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, online shopping has skyrocketed. In fact, a recent eMarketer report indicates e-commerce will have an unprecedented jump of 18 percent to reach $709.78 billion in 2020 which is increasing the need of GEODIS’ warehousing and distribution center capabilities.
“The pandemic has forced brands and 3PLs to reach customers where they are,” said John Grubor, Head of Contract Logistics for GEODIS in Americas. “We are now facing a bevy of new challenges in logistics and supply-chain heading into peak season, such as visibility of inventory, needing to constantly adjust fulfillment capacity, and managing product returns efficiently. In order to create a positive buying experience for customers, it’s important we have enough teammates at our 19 campuses to handle the increase of orders and deliveries.”
GEODIS will add the following types of positions: Seasonal Material Handlers and Forklift Operators.
Safety of teammates and customers is the top priority at GEODIS. To ensure a safe and healthy working environment GEODIS has implemented a series of measures and procedures such as temperature checks, enforced social distancing, frequent surface cleaning, and the use of technology for ongoing monitoring and reporting. Additionally, each employee receives a safety kit and personal protective materials are available to GEODIS teammates both within and outside of the workplace.
