About Logical Staffing

Logical Executive

The Logical Staffing Story

Since our establishment in 2002, we have been committed to servicing Melbourne and Brisbane’s business and industry workforce solutions. We are proudly 100% Australian owned and operated and are dedicated to supporting your company to thrive. 

Logical Staffing Solutions was born out of a need to supply high-quality candidates to logistics, manufacturing, and transportation industries. We noticed that the personnel recruitment market was littered with agencies, few of which had the internal expertise and knowledge to confidently fulfil the requirements of their clients.

We proudly only employ internal operations staff that have previous hands-on experience within the industries we serve and our key stakeholders have more than 75 years combined experience in labour hire, and full supply chain.

 We only work in the markets in which we have extensive first-hand working experience, including,

  •         Experienced truck drivers
  •         Plant & equipment operators
  •         Warehousing & distribution personnel
  •         HACCP inducted production staff
  •         Food & light manufacturing workers
  •         Office & administration staff


By only engaging consultants, sales, and customer service staff with a wealth of knowledge in both recruitment and the target sector, we ensure that temporary contractors are equipped with the appropriate skills, experience qualifications and licenses for the role. Health and safety, productivity, efficiency, and morale must never be compromised.

The Logical Staffing Promise

Logical Staffing Solutions is dedicated to providing a locally focused, globally informed answer to filling the employment gap in the manufacturing, transportation and logistics sector.

We promise to,


All our candidates are rigorously screened as part of the recruitment process. This enables us to offer our clients high quality, knowledgeable and experienced workers.

Offer Flexibility

We offer a range of interview processes to ensure the candidate is comfortable and is able to showcase their strengths. This includes interviewing via Zoom, WhatsApp, in person or on FaceTime.

Be Responsive

We understand the time constraints of working within an on-demand economy and seek to provide staff on time, every time.

Provide an end-to-end service

Whether you are a client or a candidate we will never treat you as part of a production process. We get to know you, your business, skills, and experience and aim to meet your needs.

Be Responsible and Professional

We provide a specialized service and are renowned for our professionalism within the industry.

Be fair

All our candidates go through the same thorough recruitment process. We ensure our candidates are paid fairly and on time for their work, in line with government guidelines.

Our Knowledge

Spanning 75 years of combined experience, we have learned a thing or two about business, industry, and high-quality recruitment. We are renowned for our specialised work in the sector.

 First and foremost, we at Logical Staffing Solutions believe that life is so much more than work alone. We have a genuine desire to ensure you get safely home to your family every day. To that end, work health and safety is of paramount importance and our screening and induction processes reflect that.

 We know how important it is for you to have high-quality vetted candidates and that hiring a worker is just one part of the bigger picture of your business. We appreciate how valuable your time is and aim to make employee screening as simple and efficient as possible to include inductions, job, and company specific information. Not only do we listen to our clients and candidates, but we are attentive to them. We believe in honest, direct, and consistent communication, with a personalized and equitable service.

 As a leader in industry recruitment, we have our finger on the pulse, always keeping up to date and responding to production and manufacturing trends. We understand that our candidates want the opportunity for ongoing work and to be confident in the roles they are successful in.

 We know that by putting your trust in us, we will deliver on time, every time.

We are here to connect you with the workforce you need when you need it.

Whatever your logistics, manufacturing, transport, or administration requirements are, we are ready to provide you with professional staff.
