Supply Chain positions are essential in today’s business world in order to compete in the global industry.  Without the ability to stay competitive in this field business find themselves defeated by their competitors. This realization has brought on a critical demand for strategic thinkers qualified within the application of logistics management. This function of business makes up a multi-billion dollar industry that forces its way into every corner of the world.

This field impacts both domestic and global economies. For this reason logistics management is vital to the standard of living and overall human survival throughout the world. Without a well functioning supply chain it means more resources spent on logistics and less resources for the destination. A well oiled supply chain machine means a huge competitive advantage for businesses and countries alike. While the span of logistics management reaches to global depths it also is found in the smallest forms all the way down to the local level. A kink in supply chain management could impact everything from your local grocery store to the economy of China. Transportation is the corner stone of society’s resources and is the key link to success.

It is for this reason that the demand for capable supply chain professionals is at an all time high. The Collegiate Employment Research Institute reports that Demand exceeds Supply, as logistics is a field with more positions than graduates each year. The “Wall Street Journal” reports that logistics management talent is in short supply and the need for Logistics and Transportation Management professionals is high. Logistics management offers everything you want in a career job openings at all levels, excellent salaries, upward mobility, exciting responsibilities and worldwide opportunities.
