Logistics supervisors, also commonly known as supply chain managers, are primarily responsible for overseeing the many steps required to deliver a finished product to the consumer. For example, they oversee aspects of raw material acquisition, processing and manufacturing, product storage, movement of products among distribution centers and retail sites, and customer service. Each of these steps requires ensuring that costs are minimized while maintaining high quality in the finished product.
