Job Description for Logistics Manager
Companies which ship goods, parts, and commodities from location to location as part of their regular operations define this transportation aspect of the business as logistics. A logistics manager is typically a middle manager in charge of discrete teams or regions within a larger logistics operation of a business, and they typically have supervisory duties, make employment decisions, and create and work within approved budgets. The logistics manager will typically oversee a large group of employees and receive reports from various team leaders involved in warehouse, loading, and shipping operations. In many companies, the logistics manager in turn reports to a director-level executive in logistics or operations.Read More...
Perhaps the most important part of a logistics manager's job is to ensure the efficiency of the movement of goods or components through a company's shipping system. They typically generate reports showing how quickly and accurately warehouses fill orders for company factories or consumer goods shipping, and will also analyze shipment delivery times based on quantities of items or the total weight shipped.
Throughout these processes, the manager looks for ways to remove bottlenecks and obstacles and create as clear a path as possible for all logistics operations. Because logistics can also involve safety issues, logistics managers typically work with team leaders to ensure that warehouses, equipment, and freight vehicles are regularly inspected, reports are retained, and necessary repairs are handled expediently.
Logistics managers, like managers of many departments within large companies, must oversee and implement systems for hiring, performance reviews, scheduling, and overall best practice procedures within every component of the logistics sector of the company. The manager is likely to have a support and administrative staff, but will still need organization and excellent communication skills to do the job well. They may also be required to generate reports and data showing logistics performance and present them frequently to operations and logistics directors within the company.
Most logistics managers have an education background that includes undergraduate work in operations or logistics management from a university. Many employers search for candidates with excellent practical experience in shipping, receiving, and warehouse management as part of a logistics department. Most logistics managers work regular business hours in an office environment, but will also spend time in the field at warehouses, docks, and similar facilities. Travel may be a major part of the position depending on the employer. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
