Logistics Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Logistics Manager in Riverside:
"Structure."
Not everything is going to be structured for you on how to operate. There are regulations and requirements to which you must adhere, but there is also a great deal of personal interpretation and decision making required. You have to want to learn and question every detail of everything you do. You also have to be able to think outside the box a little bit.

Logistics Manager in Mineola:
"Coordinate, prioritize, lead, organize and care."
Prioritize, coordinate, quality over quantity (sometimes) and efficient. Organization is essential to success. As a logistics manager you have to manage people and their personalities sometimes as much as the product itself. You have to know when to push and when to coddle. Stressing team achievement over individual acclaim resonates with coworkers. Be a leader by showing the way and not by telling the way. Action speaks louder than words and allocation of duties makes all involved in the process feel a sense of importance and self-worth. If you have to speak to someone about their individual performance pull them aside and never verbally chastise an employee in front of a group. Think before you act while always keeping the next day in mind.

Logistics Manager in Naples:
"Be a leader."
Be a leader - build a strong team whose members are interchangeable and can do ALL the work. Be transparent and honest with your group. Understand the strengths and weakness of all members and yourself.

Logistics Manager in Miami:
"Impacting people."
The role of Logistics and Supply Chain is an ever changing and challenging environment. We must be prepare to listen to the people we serve and those that work around us in order to learn and lead correctly. There is a perfect balance to perform well: be customer focused and be cost effective. The best career I've ever had.

Logistics Manager in Minneapolis:
"Patience and Grace."
It takes many years to prepare for a position as a logistics manager; it represents the collective wisdom of several sub-disciplines (e.g., training, technical writing, logistics engineering, packaging and transportation, and reliability). Those who take the time to master this body of knowledge will be equipped to achieve great things; those who attempt to fast track through the journey, will do more harm than good and ultimately end their career early.
