Logistics Managers control and organise the supply of goods from their origin to the consumer. They contribute to operational efficiencies by implementing systems that support a business’s strategic plan.
Most large organisations employ a logistics team and manager. These organisations include manufacturing firms, wholesale distributors, service providers, transport organisations and retail chains. Advancements in technology, like the Internet and online shopping, have made it possible for organisations to sell their products and services on a global level. Along with the rise in customer demand and expectations of prompt delivery, it is becoming increasingly important for a successful online company to have an efficient logistics department.
A Logistics Manager will have a detailed and a well organised style, accurate planning skills, the ability to think on their feet and make decisions. Their skill sets are very much in demand, and they can enjoy varied career opportunities across a range of industries.
