Logistics Jobs

Logistics Job Overview

People who work in logistics jobs are responsible for the entire supply chain system of a product that moves it from the manufacturer or supplier to the consumer. Generally, logistics jobs require applicants to:
  • Develop relationships with consumers and suppliers
  • Understand what consumer needs are and how to meet them
  • Create and implement strategies that minimize the cost and time required to transport goods
  • Propose ways to make improvements to a current logistics system
In most cases, logistics workers depend on robust software to plan how goods will be moved, and follow their progress once they leave the initial facility. Some of the software packages are specific for logistical functions and can lead to jobs in procurement, loss prevention and inventory management.

Logistics Job Education Requirements

Although it may only be necessary to have an associate's degree for some logistics professions, many employers prefer to hire people who have bachelor's degrees, especially since logistics chains are becoming more complex. Some people who ultimately end up in logistics jobs have backgrounds in business, supply chain management, and industrial engineering.

Many logistics workers decide to become certified through the American Society of Transportation and Logistics, or the International Society of Logistics. Candidates must demonstrate both education and real-world experience, and usually have to pass an exam. Although the majority of employers do not require certification, a person who decides to become certified may be seen as more valuable in a competitive marketplace. With the right training, it's possible to become a Logistics Manager.

Logistics Job Market

Employment in the field is projected to grow 22 percent through 2022, which is much faster than average compared to all other occupations. One of the reasons why the job market is predicted to be so favorable is because a growing number of companies are recognizing the worth of a global economy. Even if a company is based in the United States, that doesn't mean it has to be restricted to only marketing products to people in that country.

Whether a manufacturer opts to sell products only domestically or to ramp things up to a worldwide level, logistics experts are needed to make those aspirations happen smoothly and efficiently.

Logistics Job Salary Information

In 2012, the median annual wage for logistics workers was $72,780. People who tended to earn more than that amount were usually involved in jobs related to aerospace parts manufacturing, or transportation, and some worked for the federal government, such as in military jobs.
