Logistics-related positions are trending in the job market because every company needs to move their products somewhere, somehow—logistics is an ever-growing industry. Our world is globalized, which calls for products moving farther away and partnerships being made across all corners of the world. Logistics companies are virtually located everywhere. Have you ever considered a career in logistics?
Here’s what you may want to consider:
You’ll Create Change
In 2015 the logistics and transportation industry cost $1.48 trillion. Now, technological advancements, in automation, mobile apps, clean diesel technology, and more, are expanding the reach of logistics every day.
You’ll Have Stability
The median annual pay for logisticians in the United States is $35.66 an hour. Growth in the logistics industry is influenced by the need for transportation of goods in a globalized economy. And rather than hire outside, logistics employers are more likely to promote lower-level employees upward to higher-level positions. A career in logistics can also be started from just about anywhere—many companies need logistics work and management.
There’s Opportunity for Advancement
There are many fields you can experience in the logistics industry, whether it be customer service, purchasing, warehousing, materials handling, transportation, operations, strategy, inventory control and many others. Although valuable, logistics is an industry that usually doesn’t require an advanced degree. and even if your degree is nowhere near the logistics industry, you still have your own motivation and confidence that can help you to stand out while you begin your logistics career.
