Careers in distribution and logistics

Careers in distribution and logistics: Careers in Supply Chain and Operations
Careers in distribution and logistics: Careers in Supply Chain and Operations

Industrial distribution and wholesale distribution involves selling products and services to businesses, usually more expensive goods, or sold in relatively large quantities. These businesses really depend on knowing their customers' business and trying to anticipate their needs. From the time a product leaves the factory, to the time it gets to a retail store—or your front door, if you have it delivered—it is going to be loaded onto trucks, ships, and airplanes. It is going to be stocked and shipped from warehouses and distribution centers. In fact, transportation and warehousing is an industry in its own right, called logistics. The companies that provide logistics services are called 3PLs, third party logistics providers. They need drivers, pickers, supervisors, dispatchers, and managers. They also need safety specialists, process improvement gurus, and project managers.
