5 reasons to start a career in logistics

Logistics is...

High in demand

Along with the NHS, people in logistics have been deemed as key workers in the recent fight against the coronavirus, this is simply because the industry is crucial to supplying the nation with food, getting medical supplies to the frontline and ensuring those who are most vulnerable have the resources they require.


Exciting and globally connected

Logistics is a global industry, connecting all areas of the world and involves the movement of goods and people. From food and medical supplies to home luxuries; none of the things we take for granted on a daily basis would be within our reach without a logistics operation. Anything we buy goes through a supply chain, which creates a demand for lots of jobs and people to be involved in numerous operations, making logistics the exciting industry it is!



Whether you aspire to be a CEO or want to see the world, logistics can take your career to places like no other industry, progression opportunities are everywhere. From starting on an apprenticeship, graduate scheme or having a career change in your mid-30's, logistics can provide people with the scope to progress from the classroom to the boardroom or from the UK to overseas, this really is a sector of opportunity.



As the industry which connects the world, its only right that logistics is at the forefront of technological developments. Logistics is a sector continuously transforming and at the forefront of technological developments; looking to always do things better, more efficient and environmentally friendly. Think about next-day delivery services, what if we could improve that to be next-hour services within the next 5 years? Through innovation, automation and robotics this will be possible.



Organising the movement of products or people from one part of the world to another brings many challenges, and speak to someone who works in logistics and they'll tell you that no two days are ever the same, which is why many people love the sector. From small local operations to large international freight management, the challenges within logistics are endless, requiring excellent skills in problem-solving, innovation, communication and time management.
