CJ Logistics announced that it has signed a business agreement to support the field placement and employment of students with disabilities in the logistics industry with the Korea Employment Agency for Persons with Disabilities, Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education, and SL Logistics on the 11th at the Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education. The four institutions will provide substantial and systematic support to increase sustainable jobs for persons with disabilities in the logistics industry by establishing an organic cooperative system.
The point of this four-party business agreement is to create a methodical job training system for students with disabilities in Incheon so that they can be employed in the logistics industry and create stable jobs. A training system aligned with actual companies will be implemented, through which students with disabilities can complete parts of their curriculum through practical on-the-job training at CJ Logistics. Starting April this year, the company will select around 30 senior high school students with relevant majors in Incheon and provide field training for general affairs at logistics terminals and parcel delivery. After training, students will be employed based on their willingness and evaluation results.
To this end, CJ Logistics provides a stable supply of parcels based on advanced logistics infrastructure as well as the place and administrative staff required for field placement. A CJ Logistics agency ,SL Logistics, which is authorized as a standard workplace for the disabled, will run the field placement program and offer employment afterwards. The Korea Employment Agency for Persons with Disabilities will support vocational training, such as vocational evaluation and allocation of job coaches, and the Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education will be in charge of recruiting and selecting the students who will participate in the program.
Planning to expand the scope of the Blue Parcel project that offers high-quality jobs for persons with disabilities
CJ Logistics has been carrying out the last mile service called Blue Parcel since July 2020, through which deliverymen with disabilities deliver parcels transported to the bases within apartment complexes to each home. The Blue Parcel project , which was carried out at Songdo SK View Apartment, the first serviced area, stably delivers a daily average of 150 parcels per person and 4,000 parcels a month to a total 2,100 households.
With this agreement, CJ Logistics plans to expand the scope of the Blue Parcel project to provide high-quality jobs for persons with disabilities. “We will be able to provide job opportunities in the logistics industry for a greater number of students with disabilities based on our close cooperative system with each institution,” said an official at CJ Logistics. “We’re going to gradually increase our Blue Parcel services by continuing to encourage the employment of persons with disabilities.”
