Logistics management is a business management program that prepares graduates for employment in the areas of total supply chain management, including inventory control, materials management, and transportation. The field of logistics management includes occupations such as supervisors and/or managers of transportation, warehousing, and materials management.
In addition, skilled-labor in logistics-related areas such as materials handling, equipment operators, and administration support, play an equally vital role. Logistics is now widely recognized as a critical driver of operational excellence, cost reduction, and customer service to an organization’s bottom line.
Three major functional areas of logistics are warehousing, transportation and materials management. Advances in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Logistics Management Systems (LMS) technology have enabled logistics managers in each of these functional areas to gather, analyze and process data, resulting in automation and enhanced productivity. The demand for trained logistics professionals is growing nationally, resulting in career opportunities in high-growth industries and is projected to add substantial numbers of new jobs in Texas.
Representative career titles and job positions for this program plan include:
