What Does a Career in Logistics Look Like?

A career in logistics means that you will hold a crucial link in industry operations. Logistics refers to the storage, transportation and exchange of supplies that exists in almost every industry of Australia and abroad. 

Logistics roles are only increasing across Australia, as industries become increasingly reliant on outsourced manufacturing and production. This means that businesses require an effective logistics leader to ensure the effective and efficient running of supply chains. 

In fact, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has predicted that the logistics industry will account for 8.6 of the GDP, employing over 1 million Australians!
