Logistics Careers

Storing and moving goods may sound simple, but it’s an incredibly complicated process involving the mass organisation of manpower, supplies, facilities and transport vehicles.

It takes a special kind of person to oversee this process. Logistics professionals implement and manage transport, manage and model supply chains, design logistics networks, warehouse and inventory stock, manage operations, plan and control purchase and distribution, and maintain quality management.
