Transportation Logistics Job OverviewThe field of logistics as it applies to the transportation domain focuses on supply chains. Transportation Logistics analysts help businesses to increase efficiency, minimize costs and reduce their environmental footprint. Transportation Logistics managers put those plans into action and are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the supply chain. There are also Transportation Logistic professionals who serve supply chains in general - known as Storage and Distribution managers. Modern supply chains must account for a wide array of transport methods, including trucking, railway and shipping.
Transportation Logistics Job Education RequirementsTransportation Logistics is a broad field that provides many opportunities, and nearly 60 percent of the transportation jobs available only require some college, a high school diploma or GED certificate. This level of worker does require knowledge of transportation, production, processing and time management, but those skills are often acquired on the job. At the management levels of Transportation Logistics, approximately 35 percent of workers have a bachelor’s degree and 25 percent have a master’s degree or doctorate. Depending on their specialization, these Logistics workers will often have an educational focus on analytics or engineering.
Transportation Logistics Job MarketThe overall job market for logisticians is expected to grow by 22 percent between 2012 and 2022, and the transportation job market should grow by 5 percent in that time period. Although this suggests a vibrant job market at all levels of the field, a fair assumption is that logistical analysts and logistical engineers are in high demand. In fact, there are approximately 4,200 new positions available annually for analysts and engineers alone.
Transportation Logistics Job Salary InformationThe national medium wage in the Transportation Logistics field is $43.86 per hour, or $83,890 annually. Entry-level workers can expect $23.73 an hour, or $49,400 annually. Professionals who work as logistic analysts and logistic engineers can expect a median of $73,400 annually, and the top 10 percent in the field nationwide earn $142,540 each year.
