Geodis says it plans to hire nearly 3,000 seasonal workers across its operations in the U.S. and Canada to support anticipated peak season volume increases.

The company is strengthening its workforce to enhance operational capabilities in its warehouses and distribution centers to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

Insider Intelligence reported 2022 holiday sales grew 4.8 percent year-over-year, returning to more typical levels experienced prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a similar peak season is expected this year. Insider Intelligence predicts a comparable 4.5 percent increase in holiday retail sales in 2023, indicating a stable performance following a pandemic-era surge.

Geodis is hiring material handlers and equipment operators to join its 17,000 workers already in place this peak season across 13 of its campuses in the U.S. and Canada.

The company provides competitive compensation, pay incentives, and peak and referral bonuses. It has both part-time (under 30 hours a week) or full-time (more than 30 hours a week) seasonal work, including weekends and multiple shifts throughout the day.

“We recognize the tremendous trust our clients place in us to meet increased customer demand during what’s often the busiest time of the year for their businesses,” said Anthony Jordan, Geodis in Americas executive vice-president and chief operating officer.

“By enhancing our operations with additional workforce during peak season, we are able to take proactive steps to meet anticipated volumes with quality service while prioritizing a community-minded, employee-first atmosphere for our teammates. At GEODIS, we pride ourselves on offering an inclusive work atmosphere that prioritizes the safety and well-being of our employees,” said Jordan. “Our teammates are the core of our business, and we believe each person is deserving of a work environment that matches the tremendous value they bring to our operations every day. There is a place for anyone to succeed here based on their individual goals, whether that be to earn extra money during the holiday season or pursue a long-time career.”
