3 reasons you should consider a career in logistics

Posted by Harriet Mills on May 11, 2016 1:45:30 PM

Hmmm .... I haven't really considered logistics as a career.

Myth: I want a job that matters, where I can really make a difference - logistics doesn't seem to fit that profile.

Truth: A career in logistics HUGELY matters.

Making your career choice is a big deal. You want to work with great people like yourself who want to make a difference in the world, community, and in life. A career in logistics probably isn't even on your radar, but surprisingly, more and more millennials are finding that working for a 3PL is just that - a job that matters. Food, for example, is an essential part of life (who doesn't love food?), and somehow needs to get to market. Farmers rely on shippers to distribute their fresh produce while distribution centers count on logistics to deliver these goods to your grocery stores and ultimately to your kitchen table. 3PLs arrange the movement of this, and many other kinds of freight. Without logistics, getting food to table isn't possible.
