Logistics: An Important Career Field

Logistics is the process of planning, implementing, and controlling procedures for the efficient and effective transportation and storage of goods, including services and related information, from the point of origin to the point of consumption.

The goal of logistics is to successfully meet customer requirements. This definition includes inbound, outbound, internal and external movements.

Logisticians are in charge of a business or organization’s supply chain, so they generally work in supply chain management (SCM).

Today the field of logistics offers a multitude of fascinating career paths. Whether you’re interested in using the best digital tools in electronic freight management systems, or managing some of our shipping accounts,  you'll discover a wealth of opportunities to express your talent while exploring the various aspects of transporting freight globally.

Transitioning from a military logistics position to a career in the civilian world may seem daunting. The same dedication, honesty, and self-discipline you've demonstrated under military command will place you head and shoulders above other candidates. As a civilian working for one of the largest distribution facilities in the Port of Savannah, you can work your way up to exercising more authority and increased job responsibilities. Careers in logistics often require both vision of what’s possible and a clear grasp of cutting-edge technological trends.
