An internship is an excellent way to enhance your CV. It shows that you have taken time to research your chosen field and invested the energy into getting there.

When applying for an internship in logistics there are certain things that it is recommended to include in the cover letter that will accompany your CV, if your application is to be successful.

Firstly, your motivation. A company offering a work placement, doesn’t simply want an intern who is looking for a position because they have to. They will be looking for someone who wants to work for them. Therefore, it is vital that you convey the idea that an internship, is not simply a necessity to validate a qualification, but rather you have taken the time to research the company and this is the right one for you. Showing a knowledge of the company history or future projects, will help to highlight this.

Furthermore, it is important to mention skills which are valued in the world of logistics, such as organisation, reliability, team working skills and the ability to remain calm under pressure whilst working to tight deadlines.

Example of cover letter for an Internship in Logistics

Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing to you today to apply for the six-month Internship which is available in your company. I saw that you are searching for someone on the Nottingham University website. I am currently in the second year of my Logistics degree, and would be delighted to be able to validate the years learning and gain valuable on the job experience with a company like yourself, where I can utilise the knowledge I have gained in real life situations.

Through further research in to your company, I have seen that you offer the kind of exciting opportunities in which I am searching for. You can see in further detail in my attached CV, that I have experience in a variety of capacities. I am comfortable working on my own and using my initiative as and when required, whilst also being a valuable member of any team situation. I have been regularly commended and recognised for the work that I produce. My unique qualities alongside my strong interest in chain supply management and logistics make me an ideal candidate to fill your opening.

During my first year, I undertook an internship with a growing oil company in India. I had no prior experience in this field, but I forced myself to become an expert, so that I would not fall behind and risk delaying my colleagues. I adapted to this situation very quickly, so much so that I was the only intern selected to speak on behalf of the company at a worldwide Oil company assembly.

You can have faith in me to adapt to your work environment immediately and to deliver reliable and innovative results. I have demonstrated this on numerous occasions in the past, all of which I would be happy to discuss with you further in an interview. I have also vast knowledge of analysing energy markets. The skills in which I have learned through working in this industry can be applied to any working environment that I am placed in, particularly in your company. I am also a very well-spoken and personable individual and can bring to you a great deal of passion and enthusiasm to this sector.

I am available at your convenience for further discussion about any role which you may have available for me and how I can be of benefit to your company. Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information. Thank you for taking the time to look over my application and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely
