Job Description for Logistics Analyst

Logistics is a catch-all term used by businesses to describe the means by which they get their goods or services to market. A logistics analyst studies all aspects of this supply chain, from manufacturing capacities to storage facilities (and, with perishable goods, shelf life) to shipping and distribution.
