Supply Chain & Logistics

Logistics and supply chain careers can get you moving and shaking in the biggest industry.

Here are five things you NEED to know – like rewarding work opportunities and international perks!

Every day in a normal logistics and supply chain career is different. There are lots of ways in, not just university. You’ll build all kinds of useful skills and might even get international business experience!

What does LOGISTICS mean? Let’s begin at the beginning. If you’re not sure what a career in logistics is all about, logistics means getting goods to where they’re needed – for example, you could be managing a warehouse. Logistics management is a type of supply chain management, and only one organisation is involved.

The supply chain can be broken down into finding goods to sell (or the things needed to make them) then moving them to their new home in storage, producing and packaging them as needed, storing them in their bright and shiny new forms ready for people to buy, then making sure they hit the shops, restaurants, supermarkets or wherever they’re meant to go.

You could even be a buyer who finds and buys the goods your company will sell. That’s right, there are supply chain jobs where you can buy stuff with someone else’s money for a living – it’s called procurement!

Let’s look at some of the top few positions in supply chain and logistic.
