Logistics/Distribution Jobs

A career in logistics and distribution may suit you if you enjoy coordinating and overseeing a process to its completion

Logistics and distribution roles include organising the storage and distribution of goods, ensuring that the right products are delivered to the right location on time and at a good cost. You may also be involved in transportation, stock control, warehousing and monitoring the flow of goods.

  • Using IT systems to manage stock levels, delivery times and transport costs.
  • Use associated information systems to coordinate and control the order cycle.
  • Use data from IT systems to evaluate performance and quality and to plan improvements.
  • Allocate and manage staff resources according to changing needs.
  • Manage staff.
  • Liaise and negotiate with customers and suppliers.
  • Develop business by gaining new contracts, analysing logistical problems and producing new solutions.
  • Understand, work with and possibly help to develop e-commerce.
  • Continually try to improve and develop business performance within the constraints of legislation, fuel costs and rising environmental pressures.
