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.

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.
