Dozens of students from Ely College were given a glimpse behind the scenes at leading East Cambridgeshire firm Potter Logistics.
The Queen Adelaide-based business opened its doors to students, last Wednesday, as part of a drive to get young people interested in logistics.
The youngsters were also introduced to a new board game, Business on the Move, which challenges players to run a business that must respond to customers’ orders, moving different products from China to the UK market.
The game has been designed and backed by more than 50 businesses in the logistics and retail trade, including Potter Logistics, with a view to encouraging students to consider moving into a career in the sector.
Darren Tofts, general manager of Potter Logistics Ely, said: “Business on the Move brings the world of logistics to the class room.

“With a sector that little is known about, but is integral to the UK economy, it’s important to introduce it at a young age.
“It was great to see all the children engage with the game and for them to see a live operation when they toured our distribution centre.
